Vegetable Spring Rolls

Spring Rolls, i didn't make them often as felt it's too much to do from scratch but that was until i was not using ready-made spring roll wrappers and preferred making them at home. This time i made it using ready-made spring roll wrappers and believe me one of the fasted and easiest to prepare dish !
So here we go... Enjoy the Spring Rolls :)


Let's collect Ingredients:

Spring roll wrappers
2 cups mixed vegetables ( shredded cabbage, grated carrots, french beans, green bell peppers cut into strips)
3/4 cup bean sprouts
1 onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup spring onion with greens, finely chopped
2 tbsp vegetable oil ( i used chilly oil)
2 tbsp Soya sauce
1 tbsp hot and sweet chilly sauce
1 tsp white pepper powder
1 tsp ginger powder
2 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste

Let's start cooking:

1. Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat. Add onions and carrots and stir-fry for half a minute.

2. Add green bell peppers and cabbage and continue to stir-fry for one minute. Add the ginger, garlic powder, white pepper powder, salt, soy sauce and hot and sweet chilli sauce.

3. Add bean sprouts and spring onions with greens and cook until veggies are crisp-tender. Set aside to cool until they are lukewarm.

4. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

5. Divide the veggie mixture into equal portions.

6. Lay a spring roll wrapper on a dry flat surface. Place a spoonful of the filing mixture in one corner of the wrapper.

7. Roll the wrapper over the filling, folding the sides as you go to form a small spring roll. Press the seams together with a little water and seal the edges.

8. Lightly brush the rolls with vegetable oil or whisked egg whites.

9. Bake 15-20 minutes, then flip on the broiler for a few minutes until they turn golden brown.


Tips:

1. You can also add noodles relacing sprout beans with them.
2. In stead of baking you can also deep fry them in oil till golden brown. I find baking healthier.

Have a nice time this weekend, Have a Good Friday and Happy Easter weekend. :o)

The growing trees, the new flowers
And birds that sweetly sing
Whisper to me that it’s Easter
Here is wishing warmth for your soul
On Easter and always!
Happy Easter !!
