Ingredients

  • 3 Free Range Eggs, beaten

  • 1 small Carrot, cut into match sticks
  • 1 small Cucumber, cut into match sticks
  • 1/4 cup Bean Sprouts
  • 10 Fresh Mint Leaves, torn

Optional cooked Protein filling:

  • 1 Chicken Thigh, cut into thin slices or
  • 1/2 cup Beef or Lamb strips or
  • 8 Green Prawns, de-shelled
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Oil for cooking

Optional no-cook Protein filling:

  • 185 g canned Tuna or Salmon, drained

Nut Satay Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoon almond spread or 100% peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon Water
  • 3 tablespoon canned coconut milk
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder
  • Pinch chilli powder (optional)

Instructions

  •  If using a cooked protein filling, prepare this first. Heat oil in a frying pan, add garlic and stir for 1 minute until fragrant. Add chosen protein and fry until cooked through. Set aside. 
  • On a low heat, add oil to frying pan. 
  • Pour ½ egg mixture into pan and swirl around to spread evenly. Cook over a low heat for 1-2 minutes or until it holds form and cooks through. Set aside and repeat with remaining egg mixture. 
  • Place individual cooked egg crepes on a flat surface. 
  • On edge of the crepe create an even line of fillings with protein, carrot, cucumber, bean sprouts, kelp noodles and mint leaves. 
  • Roll the outer edge closest to the filling in towards the middle and continue to roll over to form a roll. Cut into halves or thirds. 
  • Make dipping sauce by mixing all ingredients until well combined. Alternatively you can use small blender or electric mixer to combine. 
  • Serve egg paper rolls fresh with dipping sauce. 

Notes

Serving Suggestions:
  • Great for a pre-packed lunch.
Make It Personal:
  • Add a crunchy texture to your dipping sauce by adding 2 tablespoons crushed nuts.
  • Add finely chopped lemongrass with garlic when cooking chosen protein.
  • You can also substitute egg wrappers for Nori Sheets (sushi wrappers).
Recipe Tips:
  • Make sure the egg crepe isn’t too thin otherwise it will break when rolling.
Sensitive to Eggs?

Sensitive to FODMAPs?
  • Omit fresh garlic from cooked protein and use garlic infused olive oil.
  • Omit fresh garlic from Satay Dipping Sauce and add a drizzle of garlic infused olive oil.
  • Stick to small amounts of almond butter or choose a tolerated nut butter instead.
