Did you happen to notice the nutritional information on it?

The only food I have ever as politely as possible spit out that was not for reasons of (too spicy or found a bone) is grape leaves lol.

I saw rice paper today on sale at my store but wasn't sure what I could do with it, this is a good idea!

I've tried to get used to the taste of seaweed and it just has a fishy taste to me that I can't seem to get past. Are there any brands that a less fishy tasting than others that you know of?

Not sure if applicable, but I worked at a greek restaurant and they wrapped a lot of things in grape leaves. Looked like a line of sausages on a plate. Very durable and tasty too. Help ground beef without falling apart.

Romaine and red lettuce are my favorites for salads. I haven't tried making lettuce wraps yet.

It depends on what's in the roll. A roll made with brown rice, avocado, and different raw fish is definitely healthier than one made with white rice. Then again, both are much healthier than deep-fried rolls with sauces that are made with mayonaise.

The nori in itself varies depending on brand, but one brand contains 10 calories, 1 gram of protein, 1 gram of fiber, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 5mg of sodium, 8% of your Vitamin A, and 10% of your Vitamin C intake in one sheet.

Are sushi rolls a healthy snack?

On the line of rice paper rolls, why not try nori, or seaweed wraps. They're the same thing that people use to make sushi rolls.

I remove part of the leaf at the bottom, and then maybe even put a small slice up the rib in order to help it bend.

I dont always roll it. Sometimes I use it as a bun for things like burgers.

I prefer romaine, but you're right, it is hard to work with.
I like to use iceberg, you can get a huge leaf off and it works great.

I usually just use Romaine, but I sort of smash it down before, to break the stiff ribs so it will fold up better. I don't usually use it for rolling, though. Just folding in two, really.

I like using rice paper to wrap up veggies and put the lettuce in the wrap with all the other veggies. It makes eating the wraps a lot easier - not to mention dipping them!

There's a type called butter, Bibb, or Boston lettuce that's less crisp than romaine, but it's also slightly less nutritious. That's what restaurants usually use. I look for red or oak leaf lettuce, myself. It's not quite as easy to roll up because it's irregularly shaped, but it has a lot more vitamins and antioxidants.

I need some help w/ lettuce wraps... what kind of lettuce should I use? Every time I try to use leaves of romaine, they break apart and snap making it not very appetizing...

Thanks in advance!
