Rice paper is a healthy low calorie option in comparison to other wheat based products. This delicate translucent dumpling allows the diner to see the colourful nutritious vegetables which are bursting with vitamins. Another serving option is to create a rice wrap by leaving the one end open allowing the vegetables to cascade on to the plate creating a delicious display. The recipe can be found here -
