I have a new respect for the making of summer rolls. I had never considered the difficulty I would run into immediately upon making some of these bundles of summery goodness for lunch today.
Problem 1: I didn't know how to julienne a carrot. I do now!
Problem 2: This was my first time handling the rice sheets, and they were so sticky! I don't understand how you can tighten your little roll when your wrapping sticks to itself! (Of course, if my vegetables were properly julienned, this may have helped.)
So, my summer rolls were all wobbly and weird...but tasty! I filled them with carrots, cucumber, peanuts, ginger, shrimp and soy. Pretty healthy! I'll definitely make another effort at tighter summer rolls and julienning vegetables.
