Nutritional values

This recipe contains little fat and many nutrients, making it a great way to save on calories. The rice paper rolls score points with extra protein, vitamins from the B group (for nerves and blood formation), and vitamin C.

Instead of store-bought turkey breast slices, leftovers from home-made roast turkey or grilled chicken are good substitues.
