These delicious rolls with a sweet taste and crunchy texture are so healthy and easy to make. Dip it in a sweet and sour soy sauce before biting into one.
1 large jicama, peeled, shredded
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
a few dashes of ground black pepper
1 tablespoon crushed peanuts
2 tablespoons extra light olive oil
1 teaspoon minced ginger
15 rice papers
1 cucumber, sliced length wise, cut each slice long enough for a roll
In a hot pan, add the oil, wait for it to get hot, add the ginger, brown it, start adding the jicama in several additions, keep stirring while adding, add the soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Stir fry in high heat until the jicama is dry and soft. Remove from the heat. Let it cool before you can wrap.
You need 2 cutting boards or 2 large plates. Soak a rice paper in warm water, place it on one plate, do the same thing for another rice paper. By doing this, you don't have to wait for the rice paper to get soft. You will always have one ready to roll.
Put a piece of lettuce, 1 slice of cucumber, 3 mint leaves on the rice paper, at the end near you:
Add about 1 tablespoons jicama and sprinkle some crushed peanut on top:
Fold the two sides:
Folder the end near you:
Start rolling it away from you:
Transfer it to a plate, cover it with a wet tower.
Soak another rice paper, switch the plate with the already soaked one earlier. Start rolling another one.
Make about 15 rolls.
