Place dry bean threads into a bowl and pour hot water over them, allowing them to soak for about 5 minutes. Drain.
Once the bean threads are ready, take one rice paper sheet and dip each side into a bowl of hot water until flexible (approximately 3-5 seconds). Place the rice paper sheet on a cutting board or other flat surface.
Assemble some bean threads, purple cabbage, bell pepper, strawberries,
avocado and cilantro on the soaked rice paper, in the middle towards the side closest to you.
Take the side that is closest to you and pull it over the filling, making sure the edge reaches around to the other side, securing the filling in its place.
Take the left side of the rice paper and fold it over. Do the same thing on the right side.
Finish the roll by rolling it completely (much like rolling a burrito).
Repeat steps 2-6 until each roll has been made.
