Replacing higher-calorie breads with rice paper wrappers can help you lose weight, as can keeping your fillings for rice paper wrappers healthy.One of the easiest ways to lose weight with rice paper wrappers is to use them as bread substitutes. Click for my recipe below along with my hoisin peanut dipping sauce!

Ingredients ♥

1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
12 (16-cm) rice paper wrappers ( you can find these in any Asian ethnic store) 
1 cup baby spinach
4 ounces cooked vermicelli
1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
1 cucumber, julienned
1 carrot, peeled and julienned

FOR THE HOISIN PEANUT DIP


1/4 cup hoisin
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions ♥
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
To make the dipping sauce, whisk together hoisin, peanut butter, rice vinegar and sesame oil in a small bowl; set aside.
Place shrimp onto prepared baking sheet. Add olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast just until pink, firm and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before slicing into half lengthwise.
Working one at a time, wet rice paper for 10 seconds and transfer to a work surface; place spinach in the center of each wrapper and top with vermicelli, red cabbage, cucumber, carrot and shrimp. Bring the bottom edge of the wrap tightly over the filling, rolling from bottom to top until the top of the sheet is reached, being careful not to tear the rice paper. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
Serve immediately with hoisin peanut dip.♥
