- Spring roll wrappers
- 1 cup shredded cabbage
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup bean sprouts
- 1/2 cup sliced bell peppers
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water (for sealing the rolls)
- Oil for frying
Let’s see the process of making yummy vegetable spring rolls.
Firstly, heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Then, add the garlic and sauté for around 30 seconds.
Now we will saute the vegetables. So, add the shredded cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, and bean sprouts to the skillet. Then, stir-fry for around 2-3 minutes or until the vegetables are slightly softer but still crispy.
Now it’s time to prepare the sauce. Combine the soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl. Then, pour the sauce over the vegetables in the skillet to ensure even distribution. Continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the filling to cool completely.
Next, lay a spring roll wrapper on a clean surface. You should position it in a diamond shape with one corner pointing towards you. Place some vegetable filling onto the center of the wrapper.
Now carefully, fold the corner closest to you over the filling, tucking it tightly. Next, fold the left and right corners towards the center, creating an envelope shape. Then, brush the top corner with the cornstarch-water mixture to seal the spring roll. Remember to roll up the wrapper to enclose the filling tightly.
Repeat the same process with the remaining wrappers and filling. Next, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, carefully add the spring rolls, a few at a time, and fry until golden brown and crispy. Turn them occasionally. Transfer the vegetable spring rolls to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
Serve the vegetable spring rolls warm with your favorite dips, such as sweet chili sauce or soy sauce.
Preparing crispy vegetable spring rolls is a wonderful way to enjoy an Asian delicacy. You can create a batch of delectable vegetable spring rolls following this simple recipe.
