Vegetarian Spring Rolls

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

The best thing about these is they're baked and not fried but they still come out very crispy. I have occasionally "cheated" and fried these, as a couple of the photos show, so if you're in a hurry or just don't mind the calories, please go ahead and shallow fry in a frying pan for a couple minutes on each side. This recipe will give you 12 large spring rolls or 24 if you're using the smaller sized wrappers.

  6. Stir in the sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine, pepper, cilantro and mint and take off the heat.

  8. Arrange the wrappers on the counter, pointing diagonally.
  9. Spoon a bit of the filling onto the bottom corner of the wrapper.
  10. Roll the point of the wrapper over the filling, then fold the side points inward over the filling.
  11. Continue to roll up the wrapper away from you, using a bit of water to seal the roll if needed.
  12. Brush with oil and bake in a 400 F oven until crispy, about 15-20 minutes.
  13. You may want to flip the spring rolls halfway through baking.
  14. You can also freeze these unbaked and then bake from frozen. This will take about 25 minutes.
