Every night's vegetables in some form at our house, but the kids (all four of them) had fun eating them last night. I picked up some rice paper wrappers in the Asian store, and they got to make their own spring rolls.
I gave them each a finger bowl for dipping sauce.
and provided a big pot of hot (not scalding!) water to dip their papers into to soften them.
For filling we had cucumbers, lettuce, red bells, tomatoes, chopped fennel fronds, cilantro, curried chickpeas, and roasted green beans.
These little packs cost only a dollar or two, (are pretty low calorie if you care) and they made the whole "vegetables again!" thing fun . Everyone liked the exotic package, and the papers that soften and become magically stretchy.
