I recently discovered rice wrappers.  These are the wrappers that are used to make spring rolls.  They are made from rice flour, tapioca and salt.  They are great for making all types of wraps.  Tonite I sauteed some thinly sliced mushrooms and chopped shrimp and mixed in some sticky rice and seasonings.  You have to soften the wraps in hot water, and then I added the filling and topped with a slice of avocado.  You roll the wrap up.  You can eat it as is, or I sprayed some Pam in a pan and lightly fried it.  I used some gf sweet chili sauce as a dipping sauce.  It was delicious.  You can use any type of filling - meat, chicken, fish, fruit.  It is great to make ahead and take to work or school.  Even my husband who isn't on a gf diet loved them.
There are lots of recipes for these wrappers, but you are only limited by what you have on hand.  A great way to use leftovers!
