Vegan Rainbow Rice Paper Rolls

Welcome to summer in Australia! It is the perfect time to use our fresh produce and to make nourishing, colourful food. I had two days off this week from work, so I went to my parents house on the Central Coast. The Central Coast is known for it beautiful beaches and chilled out vibes.

I made some rainbow vegan rice paper rolls for lunch. Don’t be put off by these deliciously healthy and fresh rolls. Yes, they require a small amount of preparation but they are fun and easy to make. Make sure you have everything ready and a little bit of bench space to work with.
