Vietnamese veg rolls with dipping sauce

on

My daughter is super crazy over these super healthy Vietnamese veg rolls and sweet chilli dipping sauce .

It’s her favourite meal and snack. She relishes eating it as well as wrapping them , stuffing them with her favourite veggies. I also prefer these over other snacks as it’s super nutritious, gluten free and healthy. It’s a tasty way to make kids eats salad. It’s like a salad in a wrapper for my kids.

The dipping sauce is very simple , easy and I always have a jar of sauce in my refrigerator. So whenever hunger pang arises , just dip the paper, stuff with veggies , wrap and dip in sauce and enjoy …. It’s as simple as this.

Then take the bottom of the wrapper and cover over the fillings and tuck and roll over the whole things like a tight cigar.
