Vietnamese food is bursting with flavour and extremely healthy when prepared at home. If you are having a low carb meal, replace the rice noodles with 50g spinach or little gem leaves or simple reduce the noodles. I love this fat free dressing too – you could make extra amounts to have with pork or turkey later in the week for a quick way to spice up your meals on the go.
