Baptist South Miami Hospital’s Outpatient area waiting room has some good magazines. They also offer free coffee, tea, shortbread cookies and warm blankets–for patients and family members. I waited in a cozy corner, wrapped in a warm blanket…and copied this recipe from EveryDay with Rachel Ray. The Almond Mayonnaise that accompanies the wraps is a healthy alternative to regular mayonnaise and it actually tastes better than mayo.
On the night I made these, I put the plate of wraps on our dinner table, walked back to the kitchen and watched out of the corner of my eye to see how my family would react to something so healthy and meat-free. They slathered on the Almond Mayo and gobbled these up.
I bought the Vietnamese Rice Paper at the Beijing Mart on 163rd Street, North Miami. You just dip the paper in a bowl filled with warm water and it’s ready to fill and roll.
