Banh Xeo is a Savory Vietnamese Fried Crepe made up of rice flour, water, a little coconut cream or coconut milk and some tumeric powder to give it thatĀ nice beautiful golden yellow color. These crepes are usually filled with pork belly, shrimp, bean sprouts, and sometimes yellow mung beans, and eaten with lettuce, some fresh asian herbs and a delicious Spicy Garlic Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce. I love rolling mine in riceĀ paper, with some lettuce and fresh herbs and dipping it in the garlic chili fish sauce.

This is a very easy and fast meal for the whole family to enjoy. It is very YUMMYĀ and is gluten free. I made this dish while my niece stayed with us and she LOVED it! She went for seconds ā¤ I recently found out that I have hypothyroid and I readĀ that cutting out gluten might help me with my hypothyroidism. So, I have been cutting out some gluten and also some dairy from my diet a little at a time. The only dairy in this recipe is the freshly grated parmesan cheese. You can make this dairy free by not topping the pasta with the parmesan cheese. Ā Just because itĀ is gluten free doesn’t mean it isn’t DELICIOUS šŸ™‚ I hope you like this recipe!
