Fresh Spring Rolls

Dinner on Friday night was fresh spring rolls. I've always wondered how restaurants were able to align all the ingredients inside so neatly, and I finally know: it's all in the rice paper.

We used rice paper from a Japanese brand called Youki, which sells products for "ethnic" food, and uses no preservatives or chemicals. Aside from being so translucent it looked like you were rolling vegetables up in nothing, the rice paper had a nice elasticity that made making tightly-wrapped rolls very easy. 

The end result.
