Crunchy Spring Rolls

Before I give away the recipe for this incredibly crunchy spring rolls, I want to thank my readers for the overwhelmingly positive reviews I received for last weeks’ recipe for banana cake. I have already seen wonderful variations of the banana cake recipe that my readers have tried. Today’s recipe is similar in the way that you can try several variations to suit your liking. A crunchy snack like spring rolls is a sure fire appetizer that will kick start a meal and also perfect as a tea time snack or as kids lunch box snack.

The recipe is similar to what you find in most Chinese restaurants. However, a vegan version of crunchy spring rolls is hard to find. Moreover, I baked my rolls rather than deep frying. Deep frying tends to absorb way too much oil and it can easily hide the flavors from your veggies. I prepared this recipe with varied flavors and veggies.

Crunchy Spring RollsYou will have to buy the frozen sheets unless you can prepare your own homemade version. In my experience, the homemade wrappers do not turn out as good as the ready-made sheets since the ready made sheets are machine made and have an even and thin layer, that gives a great and even crust or crisp once they are baked or fried. so I prefer to use the frozen ones.

The vegetables that you want to add for stuffing is really up to your taste. I used carrots and cabbage for my recipe. I also used Aquafaba (and sometimes oil) to replace egg whites, to brush on rolls before baking. That turned out very good too. Crunchy Spring Rolls taste even better with a side of ketchup or hot sauce, depending on your taste.
