Easy to make baked Spring Rolls
It’s fun to get the kids involved in making fun foods like spring rolls, and what better a time than during the Chinese New Year! It would be stretch to say that my spring rolls are authentic, but they are tasty, fun and easy to make.
Here’s how I make them easier. I cut some time of the preparation by using broccoli slaw. It’s a mix of cabbage, broccoli and carrots and it’s already cleaned and julienned. I also bake the spring rolls, rather than fry them, which is healthier and also less messy.
So Happy Year of the Horse. Enjoy these with your family!
Broccoli slaw (12 oz bag)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
garlic and grated ginger to taste
Spring roll wrappers
Saute your broccoli slaw in a bit of oil until tender. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, and grated ginger, chopped garlic. Let that mixture cool a bit. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Add 1 tablespoon of your filling to the top quarter of your wrapper, roll over, fold sides towards the center and roll again. Place spring rolls on baking pan seam down. Brush each roll with vegetable oil all sides and bake for 10-15 min. on each side. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce like duck, a sweet and sour sauce or plum sauce. Makes about 20 spring rolls.
