Garden Chef Video: Vegetarian Rice Rolls

Vegetarian Rice Paper Rolls
with Prawns, Ginger Soy Sauce & Lime Herb Salad

by Australian GardenChef Amanda Athis
from Cafe Belle Fleur

My dream restaurant would have an herb and vegetable garden just outside the door. There are many Chefs that have just that -- how fabulous is that? Chef Amanda Athis of Flower Power Garden Center (Glenhaven, Australia) is one of those lucky Chefs. She can walk into her garden and pick fresh herbs, lettuce, shallots and other foods. Cafe Belle Fleur, a nursery cafe, has a lake view, for people to relax and enjoy their GardenCuizine. I wish we lived closer, we would surely stop in. Maybe you can. Their address is:

Cafe Belle Fleur
609 Old Northern Road

Glenhaven 2156
(02) 9899 7783

Chef Amanda's Ingredients include:
  • Fresh Garden Herbs: Coriander and Mint
  • Mixed Salad Greens
  • Garden Shallots
  • Rice Noodles
  • Kaffir Lime Leaves
  • Roasted Peanuts (optional)
  • Yellow and Red Capsicum
  • Grated Carrot
  • Organic Snow Pea Sprouts
  • Lime Juice
  • Sesame Oil
  • Sweet Chili Sauce
  • Prawns (optional)

Also, I am writing an article about Chefs that have Gardens. Please let me know the "Gardening Chefs" you know. I'll be sure to mention them.
And, if I get to it, I'll do a Nutrition Analysis for this recipe, I'm sure it would be a winner with all those wonderful fresh and organic veggies and little fat!
