Last week, I had the privilege to share a healthy yet festive dish on the Good Morning Girls show on TV5. I whipped up this recipe and it is fab! It’s super easy, quick to assemble, and healthy without tasting like it is. You can add any vegetables you have on hand – the key is to use different colored ones for maximum antioxidant, nutrient, and presentation impact.
These rolls get robust flavors from fresh herbs and the sauce itself. Try making these for a healthy weekday lunch or for your next holiday potluck. Feel free to play around with the filling – why not try grated fresh beets? You can grate the carrot, too. Add strips of pan-seared tofu or chopped toasted peanuts for protein, or sautéed mushrooms for more savory goodness.
You can find Vietnamese rice paper in most grocery stores. My neighborhood supermarket carries them in the taco shell section. I like these better than regular lumpia wrappers because they’re gluten free, keep for months in the pantry, and don’t tear easily. I love adding mango to these rolls – it marries well with fresh vegetables and the sauce.
