Don't miss these low-carb Vietnamese spring rolls

Print this recipe
Vietnamese cuisine is full of fresh, bright flavors like garden herbs, crisp vegetables and spicy chiles. It can also be loaded with carbs from noodles, rice and sugar in sauces. The recipe below gives you all the delicious Vietnamese flavors without a ton of carbs.
These spring rolls are fun to make. My kids love it when I serve them as a DIY meal. These are delicious plain, but they're even better served with a slightly spicy, low-carb peanut dipping sauce. For an even easier flavor boost, add chopped peanuts inside the rolls.
