Fill a shallow dish with hot water, one at a time dip rice paper sheets in the water for 5 seconds, remove immediately and lay on a tea towel (This helps to absorb leftover water) 4. Arrange the filling on the wraps, starting with the noodles, followed by the vegetables, keeping everything centred. 5.
