Preparation

Wash and cut all veggies.

Cut the cucumbers and carrots into long, thin slices.

Prepare a bowl of clean water.

How to

Place a rice paper in the bowl of water and completely cover it with water.

Soak it for 30 seconds, or until soft. Place it on a smooth, clean surface, like a cutting board.

Prepare your veggies in the middle of the paper, starting with the lettuce, then adding carrot, cucumber, sprouts and fresh cilantro.

Fold one side of the paper tight around the veggies in the middle, fold the edges into the middle as well, and roll all of it together in one smooth movement.

It might take a couple of tries, and you will get you own technique on.
