Rice Paper Bourekas

A low carb, gluten free version of an Israeli favorite.

Ingredients

  • 1 Package of Rice Paper
  • 5 Potatoes or sweet potatoes if you prefer
  • 1 Contianer of cheese I use Labaneh so its creamy
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt & Pepper
  • VERY warm water in a large flat dish

Instructions

  • The first step is to make mashed potatoes. You can add milk or butter into the mashed potatoes if you would like, I chose to add the labaneh before I mashed the potatoes instead. (I used about 3 tablespoons of labaneh but you can play around with the cheese amounts based on how cheesy you want it.)
  • If you don’t know how to make mashed potatoes it is simple- boil chopped potatoes (can be with or without skins) until they are soft. Pour out most of the water and use a masher/ immersion blender/ fork to mash the potatoes until they are creamy.
  • Once your mashed potato filling is ready, preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. While the oven preheats, dip a rice paper sheet into the warm water for about 8-10 seconds or until it becomes just barely malleable. IMPORTANT: they should not as soft as you would make them for spring rolls! You want the rice paper to still be a bit stiff so it holds is crunch. Add the potato filling and roll the paper up like you would a burrito- over, side, side, over.
  • Place the rolls onto a baking sheet and egg wash the tops. Bake in the oven until golden on both sides- approx. 30 mins per side.
