Vietnamese Spring Roll Wrappers - Gluten Free!

I just discovered Vietnamese spring roll wrappers for sale at the Asian Market. What a nice addition to my cooking repertoire. They're gluten-free, made of just tapioca starch, rice flour, salt and water. And they are so easy to use - and satisfy my longings for dumplings! So far, I've filled them with peanut-butter marinated tofu, hijiki & grated carrot, and garlic/soy sauce, sauteed green beans, but they could take anything you could dream up.

This video was helpful for figuring out how to get everything in there and sealed up:

I make spring rolls quite often when I want a portable cold lunch. I usually just fill them with leftover stirfry with some raw carrot shreds or cabbage for crunch. I've tried making egg rolls a few different way--both brushing with oil and bakign and frying in oil. The frying in oil ones fell apart and didn't really work for me. The oven worked but it took a LONG tiem to get crunchy outsides. I didn't really care for the texture of the rice paper wrapper when it got crunchy. Even though you can get really close to an eggroll by using eggroll filling and probably satify the eggroll craving, it's not quite the same as an egg roll. One of these days I'm going to try making my own gluten-free eggroll wrappers, but I'm just too lazy and would rather make spring rolls. :lol:

I use these often, mostly with a rice and salmon filling and make up a teriyaki dip to go along. Sometimes I spray a frying pan with some butter flavored Crisco and fry them until they are crispy, other times I eat them fresh. If there are leftovers the next day, I usually fry them. They are delicious and look great. I use them as a meal or when we have company over. No one knows they are completely gluten and dairy free.

Thanks for sharing! I've been meaning to buy some of those wrappers. I love cooked shrimp with mung bean sprouts. The U Tube link was helpful, thanks again.

I make these all the time! I use chopped romaine, shredded lettuce, combo of mint/basil/cilantro, shredded carrot, cooked shrimp, and fine rice noodles. Google for a good dipping sauce. Leftovers make a great lunch....and breakfast. We gluten free people are known to have some very interesting things for breakfast as evident on another thread currently running....

Here, too, with vermicelli or cellophane noodles, Thai basil or fresh mint, fresh lime juice, shrimp and/or squid or chicken (that have been marinated), julienned carrots, lemongrass, grated fresh ginger, roasted peanuts, fresh Thai chile, garlic, fish sauce, perhaps a touch of Sriracha, nori and numerous dips/sauces/vinaigrettes. If not peanuts, roasted sesame seeds.

Wow - thanks for all the ideas! I'm definitely going to try baking my spring rolls. I've been missing dumplings sooooo much, and this discovery is going to fill that void in my life.

I experimented tonight with dessert: spring roll wrappers filled with ripe apricot & basil with lime juice, drizzled with agave syrup (honey is another option). It worked for me, and was super easy.

I love these! I have fried them and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar to make sopapillas, made individual spanakopita, and pretty much anything else that needs phylo dough including Bakalava!!!

They make great vehicles for appetizers such as little cups for savoury fillings (i.e. goat cheese mousse) or as crackers with hummus or roasted red pepper and walnut dip. Also yummy sprinkled with sumac, black and white sesame seeds, thyme, poppyseeds...

Don't the rice wrappers become really hard after they are baked, such as for spinach pie or baklava? Tell me more...I love these foods and would love to know the technique.

You don't have to bake them long because they are not raw dough. Just heat them through, if they become too hard for your taste wrap or drape a wet paper towel over the food and microwave for 20 seconds. This will help soften the rice papers back to be edible.

I made fried Spring rolls and they were yummy!

The filling was ground chicken, browned and chopped up a generous sprinkle of garlic powder

a bit of grated fresh ginger

a sprinkle of Chinese five spice

Cooked in a cast iron pan. I added a package of shredded cabbage/carrot cole slaw mix. Stirred and turned the heat off. The pan will hold the heat to cook the veggies just a bit.

I rolled the mixture in the rice wraps and found if I gave them a little squeeze once rolled they held together better when added to the hot oil.

I used peanut oil to fry them.

For dipping I grated the outer skin of an orange, then cut the orange in half and squeezed the juice into a pan. Added about 1/4c apple cider vinegar, 1/4c sugar, and 1/4c water. I brought this mixture to a boil and thickened with a bit of cornstarch mixed with a small amount of water.

Where are these sold besides the Asian store, and in what section? I'm scared to go to the Asian store anymore for my flours after seeing others talk about their lead levels rising after eating products there.

Some mainstream grocery chains carry these in the international food section or Asian food section. Check in the aisle that has rice or in the aisle that has soy sauce and other similar condiments. The brands that my mainstream grocers carry, however, are the exactly the same as what I find at my Asian food stores. The only difference I find is the mainstream grocers price is 50 to 100% higher. All the brands I find come from thailand, NOT China. I don't know why lead would be a concern....

Does anyone know if Blue Dragon Spring Wrappers are gluten free? I have looked at the label but they don't say. I tried to find them online but their website on their pkg kept coming up with restaurants, tattoo shops, etc. Not sure if I want to try them in case they are cross contaminated, you know? Thanks!

    • Hello and welcome You've found a good site for advice and support.  Google suggests there is a link between EoE and Celiac, but at the moment that seems to be as much as anyone knows: https://www.emaxhealth.com/12410/celiac-disease-increases-risk-eosinophilic-esophagitis https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-96 Although it's not true that having one means you have the other.  You may want to read this thread for the experiences and ideas of others here who have experienced Burning Mouth Syndrome: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106704-burning-sensation-in-mouth/ There were lots more gluten and BMS articles, so if a direct link hasn't been made, there's food for thought there along with some interesting thoughts on B and Iron deficiencies and possible additional food intolerances. No please don't. If the biopsy is inconclusive they may want a second one or further blood tests (you don't mention if they already did these?). Once you eliminate gluten from your diet these tests are inaccurate. That's not to say you shouldn't trial the diet, just make sure with your doctor you only do so once tests are complete. I'd add that even if you test negative you have nothing to lose from trialling a gluten free diet and as someone who did test negative I highly recommend you do, but only once testing is done! In the meantime, start a food diary. Log what you eat, when, and how you feel. Just short notes but make it a habit and try to capture everything you put in your mouth.  Build a record that you can use to find patterns. Maybe a trigger for the BMS will become apparent over time. Best of luck    
    • Funny you should ask about Lectins because I am currently recovering from a recent run in with some pinto beans.  After reading soaking longer than overnight helps break down those Lectins, I soaked them for twenty-four hours  Then I cooked the spots off them!  And still, they have wreaked havoc in my tummy.  Ugh!   So while recuperating, I did some research.  While cooking can break down some of the lectins, the only way to get rid of them completely is to cook them in a pressure cooker.  I was surprised to find that Lectins are histamine releasers!  Lectins make Mast cells release all their histamine.  Aha!   The red wine and balsamic vinegars and the bottled lemon juice are all high in Sulfites.  Sulfites are histamine releasers, too.  Apple cider vinegar is lower in Sulfites.   Lectins stimulate the autoimmune system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25599185 More on Lectins and autoimmune diseases: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1115436/ And for Enis' affinity for chocolate nibs...(as well as my own)... Chocolate is a source of copper.  Copper deficiency causes neuropathy.   My neuropathy has gotten worse recently and my chocolate cravings have increased.  Hmmmm...... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 More info on copper http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/copper So...I'm wondering if I've neglected taking copper along with my calcium and magnesium.  I'm starting supplementing this week. Is copper in any of your protein powders, Enis?   I hope this helps.
    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
