The Best Rice Paper Rolls Recipes

1. Rice Paper Dumplings

Dumplings tend to be laborious, but luckily, these rice paper dumplings need far less work. 

Whip up a veggie-packed umami stir fry, wet the rice papers, and stuff the filling inside. How easy is that?

Cabbage, carrots, and mushrooms are a classic combination for Asian rice paper dumplings. And tofu is the perfect veggie-friendly protein for the job. 

These dumplings are pretty plump, so you’ll want to double wrap them. Then, give them a quick sear for a delightfully crispy coating. 

As a side note, rice paper can be a bit tricky if you’ve never worked with it before. Dip it in warm water in a wide baking pan or pie dish, and you’ll find it much easier to work with.

2. Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls

Fresh summer rolls are a traditional Vietnamese dish that typically features pork or shrimp. These, though, are all about the shrimp!

These restaurant-quality Vietnamese rolls are so easy that you’ll be making them at home all the time. I know I do!

Double up on the rice papers and dip them in warm water as mentioned above.

Once they’re pliable, you can stuff them with vermicelli rice noodles, mint, bean sprouts, and shrimp.

You can also use prawns instead of shrimp if you prefer.

Just don’t leave out the peanut dipping sauce! It wouldn’t be the same without it. 

3. Banana Spring Rolls

As soon as I came across this fruity dessert, I knew I had to share it with you. 

Banana stuffed rice paper gets rolled in sugar, and apple pie spices, then drizzled with caramel sauce. Yum!

Each sweet delight gets a quick pan-fry to give the rice paper a crispy texture that complements the warm, tender banana filling. 

You know what else this calls for, don’t you? A scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Even if you’re not big on banana desserts, I know you’ll love this one.

4. Crispy Rice Paper Spring Rolls

Finding gluten-free, vegan food that carnivores love too may seem impossible. That is, until now. 

Between the sauce and the filing, these rolls are impossible to resist. 

The inside is a medley of red cabbage, sweet carrots, fresh sprouts, and vibrant bell peppers.

Give them a quick stir-fry with some soy sauce; then, you’re ready for wrapping. 

Of course, you can skip the cooking if you prefer to eat these raw. Either way, the rich hoisin tofu sauce is essential for dipping.

Make a big batch, because nobody will eat just one. 

5. Vegetable Rice Paper Rolls

Vegetable rice paper rolls are my summer jam!

The inside is brimming with a fresh rainbow mix of veggies that looks as good as it tastes – maybe even better! 

You’ll use cool cucumbers, crunchy cabbage, sweet bell peppers, creamy avocado, and more.

It does require quite a good amount of chopping, but the process is very straightforward. That said, if you have a mandolin, it’ll be a breeze!

I know you’re probably wondering about the dipping sauce, which is a heavenly touch. It’s sweet, creamy, and nutty with a nice kick of ginger. 

When I serve this as an appetizer, I like to double up on the sauces for more options, and you can’t go wrong with sweet chili sauce

6. Shrimp Rice Paper Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

Let’s face it, shrimp and summer rolls were made for one another. So here is another alluring shrimp roll you won’t want to miss.

It combines juicy shrimp with crisp veggies for a nutritious gluten-free meal. All of which go swimmingly with the creamy sauce. 

Sriracha adds a spicy kick, while the fish sauce brings its signature umami goodness. 

I know that fish sauce has a pungent odor, but don’t skip it! The deep, salty punch is just what the dipping sauce needs.

7. Fried Rice Paper Chips

Rice papers aren’t just for wrapping, ya know! You can also turn them into crispy chips for munching.

They have just as much crunch, and you can make them without oil, so they’re healthier too.

All you have to do is sprinkle them with seasoning and plop them in the microwave – yes, the microwave!

If you don’t own a microwave, fry them inside. When going this route, be sure to choose an oil with a high smoke point. 

This 5-minute easy rice recipe is so simple, I’m sure it’ll be your new go-to snack.

8. Salmon in Crispy Rice Paper

It’s hard to express just how tantalizing these salmon rolls are. The succulent fish and crisp paper will have you weak in the knees. 

The salmon takes a bath in a soy-based marinade, then gets a quick sear on each side. 

Next, it’s wrapped up tight in rice paper with a sprinkle of green onions. Then back into the pan it goes.

High in Omega-3 fatty acids and rich in flavor, these salmon rice paper rolls will melt in your mouth! 

9. Beef Rice Paper Rolls

Meat eaters, I’ve got a roll with your name on it.

Featuring savory teriyaki beef, fresh veggies, and vermicelli noodles all bundled up in sticky rice paper, these are to die for!

I know it’s hard to wait, but you’ll want to let the steak cool for a minute before stuffing it inside. 

Speaking of which, the filling is so flavorful that you don’t even need a dipping sauce. But if you want one, go with peanut satay.

It’s perfect for an appetizer, snack, and even dinner. 

10. Garlic Chicken Spring Rolls

Another fresh spring roll that’s great any time of day is this juicy garlic chicken roll. 

The marinated chicken and abundance of veggies are healthy and clean tasting, making them excellent for summer.

And the garlic dipping sauce is the perfect touch!

Each tasty roll is high in protein and vitamins, which is great because you’ll want to polish off every last one.
