Have ingredients prepped before beginning to lớn roll up the spring rolls.


What works well are shredded vegetables lượt thích carrots, zucchini, cucumber, cabbage, red or green pepper. We used the Pampered Chef julienne peeler to lớn get our perfect julienned veggies. I loved the avocado in them. The cellophane noodles (or bean threads) made them taste very authentic. I could also see adding in fried wontons or crisp chow mein type noodles to add some crunch like we tasted at the Brodard Chateau restaurant.

Use a kitchen towel khổng lồ roll spring rolls – they’ll stick to lớn a flat surface.


The orange-chili sauce couldn’t be easier to lớn make và it is so good you could use it for dipping a lot of asian appetizers like pot stickers or egg rolls.
