Who doesn’t love spring rolls ? These yummy and delicious crispy appetizers are a great way of serving all kinds of veggies under one wrap. Very adaptive recipe and feel free to play around with the ingredients. I am sharing veg spring rolls recipe with you, but meat and tofu lovers can add finely chopped meat/tofu pieces to this recipe. However, the end result will be crispy and crunchy healthy spring rolls that are baked to perfection.
Earlier, I have always prepared my spring rolls with store bought wonton/spring roll wrappers but this time, I tried my very own homemade spring rolls wrappers and they were equally good. I make them in a large quantity and freeze them for future use.
RECIPE DETAIL – Veg spring rolls are fairly easy to make and are prepared with fresh veggies. To begin with, wash, and finely chop all the veggies. Saute until tender, do not overcook them – they should still have a little crunch left to them. Add sauces of your choice and once the veggies are done, transfer them to a bowl and place them in the refrigerator to cool down prior to the spring roll assembly. This step is important, if skipped, the spring roll wrappers will become soggy and difficult to work with.
Homemade spring roll wrappers can always substitute with store bought wonton wrappers or spring roll sheets to save some time. Follow the step by step tutorial below on how to assemble/shape the spring roll. I prefer to bake my spring rolls but as per taste, you can fry them in hot oil.
Best part, these rolls can be made ahead of time, wrap them with a plastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to bake or fry. When ready, bake them in hot oven until crisp and golden brown. No one can guess that they are baked with just 1 tablespoon of butter. 🙂
Enjoy your favorite appetizer guilt-free without sacrificing the flavors – still delicious, crunchy and SUPER – HEALTHY!!
