Day 67/240: Vegetable Rolls

I decided to try something new tonight, not new to eat, but new to make.

So I made some Vietnamese vegetable rolls. It ended up being much easier than I thought, and now I have ideas for extending the roll up concept to other cultural foods.

The rolls tonight were simply lettuce leaves and julienne-cut carrot, red bell pepper, cilantro, and celery wrapped in a rice paper round and dipped into a sauce made of peanut, Hoisin and chili sauce. I liked it so much, that I may have it for lunch tomorrow. If I do, I'll pull out the camera and document it.


  1. Have you made Banh Mi yet? Could be delicious.

  2. I hadn't thought of a vegetarian banh mi, probably because I've always thought of the mayo and pate they contain as integral. But you have tickled my creativity and it occurs to me that my tofu mayo substitute would work, and I bet that I could create a good mushroom pate. Cool! That should be interesting to try.

    Want a jar of my soon to be World-Famous Zkhuk as a reward?
