  2. Wrap by folding the front and back inwards, take the left and wrap in and fold. Repeat. Set aside on plate.

For the Mung Dip Yum:
  1. Heat water or veggie broth in a wok or pot. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant over medium-high heat. Add the carrots and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the vegetable broth, sliced peppers, black pepper, tamari sauce, pecan sauce, and any additional seasoning and bring to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook for 3 minutes. Reduce the heat, add the greens and fresh herbs. Stir to incorporate.
