Jeon are a brilliant way to encourage children to eat their vegetables! They are super easy and a good way to use up any leftover vegetables.
1 carrot, grated
1 potato, grated
1 zucchini, grated
1 capsicum, finely diced
1 red onion, finely diced (omit for low FODMAP)
1 cup flour (wheat, rice (gluten-free), wholemeal)
1/2-1 cup water
Rice bran oil
Dipping sauce: 1 tb soy or tamari (GF) and 2 tb rice vinegar
1. Squeeze out excess moisture from the zucchini and potato. Add vegetables into a large bowl.

When the sun is shining, making dinner with vibrant, fresh ingredients feels exciting. Make my rainbow rice paper rolls this weekend, packed with plant-based protein, sustained release carbohydrates, vitamin C, beta carotene, iron and monunsaturated fats.
The combination possibilities are endless.
I used: pre-marinated satay tofu (marinate your own plain tofu for gluten-free) (pan-fried 2 mins each side), grated carrot, shredded purple cabbage, sliced cucumber, capsicum, avocado and coriander leaves.🥒
Soak rice paper sheets for roughly 30-60 seconds, place ingredients inside middle third of rice paper add ingredients and roll. Work quickly as the rice paper is quite sticky. Place rolls on a plate with a clean, damp towel covering them to keep fresh.
Dipping sauce: sweet chilli sauce with a bit of fish sauce and lemon juice.
Other ideas: shredded chicken, vermicelli noodles, spinach, mint, avocado (omit for Low FODMAP option)
