Rice paper wrappers are a fantastic, low calorie vehicle for all types of otherwise sandwich-appropriate foods. Pulled pork, chicken curry, tofu scramble, turkey club, etc., can all be wrapped in these lovely little papers that get softened in warm water. I happen to love mixing classic Vietnamese flavors (mint, fish sauce, cilantro) with easy access ingredients like deli roast beef and coleslaw mix. It's a substantial meal, but on the light side—perfect with a frosty cold Hitachino beer. SEE RECIPE »
