Brown Rice Spring Roll Wrappers (Bánh Tráng) by Star Anise Foods in San Francisco
Recently a Vietnamese friend gave us some homemade goi cuon (fresh rolls). I was surprised by the tan color of the rice paper wrappers. The banh trang (rice paper discs) are made with brown rice by Star Anise Foods in San Francisco and sold at Whole Foods in Northern California and New York or via the company’s website.
These wrappers actually have FLAVOR instead of just being a vessel. They taste a little nutty and the texture is slightly firmer and more elastic than the white rice variety. They may also be more nutritious. I liked them quite a bit and will seek them out when I roll my own.
