Ready to whip up something delicious and super quick? Let’s make some Rice Paper Egg Wraps!

Beat the Eggs: Start by beating 4 eggs in a bowl. Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Easy peasy!

Heat the Pan: Grab a medium skillet and heat it over medium heat. Add a tiny bit of olive oil – just enough to coat the bottom.

Add the Rice Paper: Pop a dry rice paper sheet in the pan, textured side down. Sprinkle half of your sliced green onions evenly on top.

Pour the Egg: Pour half of the beaten eggs into the middle of the rice paper. Use chopsticks or a spoon to gently spread the egg out to the edges, making a nice, even layer.

Cook the Egg: Let it cook for about 1-2 minutes until the eggs are almost set. Then drizzle on some chili oil – as much or as little as you like. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until the eggs are fully set. No flipping needed!

Finish and Serve: Carefully slide your creation onto a plate. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves and those beautiful shaved carrot strips.

Now, dig in! You can enjoy this open-faced with a fork and knife, or roll it up and eat it like a wrap. Either way, it’s going to be delicious. Enjoy!

Some useful tips for the recipe

Here are some useful tips to help you nail the Rice Paper Egg Wrap recipe:

Try this recipe: Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles

Soften the Rice Paper: If you find the rice paper too stiff, briefly dip it in warm water before placing it in the skillet. This will make it more pliable and easier to work with.

Even Egg Spread: When spreading the beaten eggs, make sure to move quickly and evenly to cover the entire rice paper. This helps the egg cook uniformly and prevents any spots from being too thick.

Heat Control: Cook on medium heat to ensure the eggs set properly without burning the rice paper. If the skillet gets too hot, the rice paper can become too crispy.

Non-Stick Skillet: Use a non-stick skillet to prevent the rice paper from sticking and tearing. If you don’t have a non-stick skillet, make sure to add a bit more oil.

Fresh Ingredients: Use fresh cilantro, green onions, and carrots for the best flavor and texture. Fresh herbs and veggies make a huge difference in the overall taste.

Customization: Don’t be afraid to customize! Add your favorite veggies, proteins, or sauces to make the wrap your own.

Roll Gently: If you choose to roll the wrap, do it gently to avoid tearing the rice paper. Start from one edge and roll tightly but carefully.

Serve Immediately: These wraps are best enjoyed fresh off the skillet. The rice paper can become chewy if left to sit too long.

Prep Ahead: For a quicker assembly, prep your veggies and beat the eggs ahead of time. This makes the cooking process even faster.

Experiment with Flavors: Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices in the eggs for a unique twist each time you make it.

Some serving suggestions

Here are some great serving suggestions for your Rice Paper Egg Wrap:

Try this recipe: Air Fryer Pesto Tuna Melt

With a Side Salad: Pair your wrap with a fresh side salad. A simple mixed greens salad with a light vinaigrette would complement the flavors nicely.

Dipping Sauce: Serve with a small bowl of soy sauce, hoisin sauce, or a tangy peanut sauce for dipping. These add extra flavor and fun to your meal.

Fruit on the Side: A side of fresh fruit like sliced oranges, berries, or a small fruit salad can add a refreshing, sweet contrast to your savory wrap.

Soup Pairing: Pair the wrap with a light soup like miso soup or a clear vegetable broth for a more filling meal.

Sliced Avocado: Add some sliced avocado on top or on the side for a creamy, delicious addition that pairs well with the flavors of the wrap.

Rice or Quinoa: Serve the wrap alongside a small portion of steamed rice or quinoa to make it a more substantial meal.

Pickled Veggies: Add a side of pickled vegetables like carrots, radishes, or cucumbers. The tanginess of the pickles can add a nice contrast to the flavors of the wrap.

Extra Greens: Serve the wrap on a bed of baby spinach or arugula for an added boost of greens and a slight peppery flavor.

Smoothie or Fresh Juice: A refreshing smoothie or fresh-pressed juice can be a perfect beverage pairing. Consider a green smoothie or a citrus juice for a burst of freshness.

Nuts and Seeds: Sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds or chopped nuts on top of the wrap for added texture and flavor.

Some storage suggestions

Here are some storage suggestions for your Rice Paper Egg Wraps:

Try this recipe: To Go Breakfast Tuna Wrap

Refrigeration: If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Make sure the wraps are completely cooled before storing to prevent condensation.

Individual Wrapping: If you’re meal prepping or planning to eat the wraps later, wrap each one individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before storing them in the fridge. This helps prevent them from sticking together and keeps them fresh longer.

Use Within a Few Days: Rice paper tends to become soggy over time, so it’s best to consume the wraps within 2-3 days for the best taste and texture.

Reheating: When you’re ready to eat, you can reheat the wraps in the microwave for a minute or so until warmed through. Alternatively, you can heat them in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes on each side until heated.

Keep Ingredients Separate: If you’re storing leftover ingredients separately, keep the sliced veggies and herbs in a separate container from the cooked eggs to maintain their freshness.

Freezing: While rice paper wraps don’t freeze well due to their delicate texture, you can freeze any leftover cooked eggs separately and use them later in other dishes like fried rice or breakfast burritos.

Assemble Fresh: For the best taste and texture, it’s generally recommended to assemble the wraps fresh rather than preparing them in advance and storing them.

By following these storage suggestions, you can keep your Rice Paper Egg Wraps fresh and delicious for longer! 🍳🌯❄️
