4. Add one of your piles to the middle of the sheet, making sure nothing pokes near/through/close to the Rice Paper.

5. Fold over the side closest to you 1/3 of the way and tuck in the vegetables as delicately as possible. Rice Paper can be fickle!

6. Roll it about an inch and fold in the right side. Roll it a little more, so that the right side is secure and then fold over the left side.

Roll the paper the rest of the way, tucking in any stray veggies. Your first roll is complete. Repeat numbers 1 through 6 for the other 3.

*Dip your fresh rolls into the sauce you made earlier and enjoy!*
