Rice Paper Wraps
0

5 posts in this topic

I want to try some rice paper wraps & have zero experience with them. I have looked online & some say use the larger ones, some say small is okay. Brands you find good? Any tips on using them are appreciated.

Do I understand that I can either just use them for an immediate wrap OR I can choose to deep fry them? If I use them w/o frying them they will harden up & dry out quickly? If I fry them, do they harden if they sit for a while?

I am also interested in trying any kind of wrap or noodle made of rice. Any suggestions will be helpful. I'm not talking about rice pastas but more in the oriental vein.

Thanks!

Oh wow Karen! Thanks a ton.smile.gif I followed all the links in all the threads. Oh yum! Can't wait to try some of this stuff. I loved your ideas of going sort of "dessert" with them w/ choc. dipping sauce. I'm thinking apricots --- I adore apricots & choc. dipping sauce. Oh Yeah!

For oriental type noodles I like the Annie Chun noodles (especially the pad thai noodles) that I find in our local grocery store.

I think the larger wraps are easier to work with. Also, there are two types. One is the usual round wrap. The other type looks more like a mesh or woven rice paper. When I went to Vietnam we did a cooking class. In the class we used the mesh type to make rolls then fried them. Then you put the roll on a leafy piece of lettuce along with whatever sauce and eat it. AMAZING. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!!! I have tried to fry up the regular "solid" sheets but they don't work as well. I'd recommend those to make cold wraps and the mesh type to fry.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
