Healthy rice paper rolls with Slendier noodles

These rice paper rolls are my go to dinner when I have left over chicken.

My (11 year old) daughter Holly helps me make them. They are a little bit messy and fiddly to prepare, but that’s half the fun. Oh and eating them with your hands is fun too. Holly doesn’t even realise she is eating a healthy meal. 😉

They are relatively low in carbohydrates, low in calories, high in taste, high in goodness.  What more could you want in a meal?



  • Chicken (I use leftovers). Prawns would work well too
  • Grated carrot
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Diced shallots from my garden. (They are so easy to grow)
  • Slendier slim noodles, prepared then cut up with kitchen scissors. (made from the vegetable konjac. I add hidden veg to a meal whenever I get the chance. Slendier products makes it so easy. Full of fibre and low in calories. Double bonus)
  • Bean sprouts (optional)
  • Capsicum (optional)

** NOTE –

I am not fancy. I grate and dice all ingredients. I find its easier to eat that way. If you want to get fancier, you can cut ingredients into long strips.  Looks better. Tastes the same.

Grated ingredients = not fancy


Slendier slim noodles = hidden veg.

Low in calories. High in fibre. I add them to lot’s of meals that I need to bulk up with goodness without adding extra calories.

They don’t look so pretty, but they taste great. Healthy too

Serve with low salt soy sauce or a small amount of sweet soy – kecap manis (very high in sugar).

Dinner = sorted.
