I thought these were AMAZING!! Not sure why people are complaining about the dipping sauce. It's great. You need to let the sauce sit for 30 minutes like the directions say prior to using. I used arugula leaves instead of Bibb lettuce. I watched a You Tube video on how to roll the rice paper for some tips. Next time I might add sliced cocktail shrimp and some chopped peanuts. This recipe rocks.
My family loves these. We are a split vegetarian and non vegetarian family, but all of us love these. We use what ever lettuce is in season in the garden. These do keep so make plenty and have them for lunch the next day!
My daughters loved making these, and we all love eating them! The directions are pretty good - they all held together well.
made it for bridge club...lots of veggie chopping...lots of compliments & recipe requests
I will have to say I couldn't find any of the bean threads, so that might have made a difference. But this recipe just didn't do it for me. The sauce had a fishy strongness to it. After reading the comments, I would have probably liked it better using soy sauce instead of fish sauce. It has potential, but was not fabulous in my opinion. (And I am a huge veggie person!)
Yum. Somewhat time-consuming to make, but very fresh and tasty. Substituted soy-sauce for the fish sauce and the sauce was very tasty.
I've often spent several dollars on two or three rolls similar to this at a Thai or Vietnamese restaurant or my local health food store. So I was thrilled with the idea of making them on my own. And, surprisingly, they were JUST as good! They were a little time-consuming, but easy and even fun. Keep in mind the flavor is subtle, but they taste so fresh and clean. The sauce was just so-so (I had to modify as I'm a vegetarian, so I can't speak for the original), so I substituted hoisin sauce.
