Cabbage is delicious but it also seems to expand from a tightly packed head into cups and cups of cabbage that takes me all week (or longer) to use up. While most people think cole slaw – I prefer my cabbage any other way and have a great grilled cabbage wedge salad that I will share before the end of the summer! But today we are talking egg rolls.
Again, I apologize because I didn’t follow an exact recipe. The main structure of the recipe came from Cherished Bliss and I will put the link at the bottom of the recipe so you can check out the original recipe. I went all vegetables this time around because I didn’t have time to thaw any meat. I added the fresh cilantro after reading other recipes and substituted chives for green onions…both herbs were fresh from the garden!
This is also a plug for the magic of using a food processor to slice, chop, and mince everything in your kitchen. I have a dream of being able to use a knife like the chefs on the cooking shows but until then, it is a food processor for me. I had all the veggies prepared in less than 5 minutes for this one with mine.
OVEN BAKED EGG ROLLS
6 cups shredded cabbage
½ cup shredded carrots
¼ cup thinly sliced bell pepper
¼ cup thinly sliced sugar snap peas
2 tbsp fresh cilantro finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh chives finely chopped
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar (I used just a smidge less)
1 ½ tsp minced garlic
Pepper to taste
1 package of egg roll wrappers (I found them in the refrigerated specialty section of the produce department.)
2-3 tbsp of preferred oil for brushing (I used olive oil)
Heat oven to 425.
Toss vegetables, herbs, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar and pepper together.
Fill a small bowl with 2 tbsp of water for “gluing” together the egg rolls. Lightly wet the edges of the egg roll wrapper with your fingers. Fill with a heaping ¼ cup of the filling. Then roll and seal the edges. The link below has far better instructions (with pictures) of making the perfect egg roll.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush lightly with oil.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes, turning once.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
