Thai Veggie Spring Rolls

An easy - no cooking required- best thing you'll want to eat on a hot summer day snack.

1/2 a cup of Carrots, Celery, Sprouts, Onion, Zucchini.
1 Large jalapeño Pepper (thinly sliced), and
1 stock of Mint
10-15 Rice Paper Wraps (12 inch variety)

This is one of my favorite ways to clean out an array of items from my produce drawer, and its a quick easy guilt free snack, that can be served with a little bit of soy sauce or honey on the side.
Everything needs to be shredded into equal sizes. I keep the jalapeño slices separately so i can "build" each wrap with a desired heat. Once you have everything shredded and mixed together in a bowl. Dip the rice paper into a large bowl of luke warm water, once its de-solved and a little bit tacky place it on a plastic cutting board. You have to do each of these one at a time or you will have a big glob of rice paper in your hands.  Begin to "stack" your wrap with a small handful of your shredded mixture adding a mint leaf and a jalapeño slice to each wrap. Fold in each corner and roll. Then place open side down onto a clean plate. Continue until all of you wraps are finished.  Enjoy!
