I think a lot of people are intimidated by these tasty little appetizers. I know I used to be! They really are a easy little things to make though. The recipe I am going to share is super SIMPLE. Very basic ingredients. The beauty of spring rolls is that you can put whatever your heart desires in them!
I tried to take step by step pictures. I hope they are easy to understand! =)
First let's gather some ingredients:
|This is the kind available at my local grocery store.|
- Spring roll shells
- soy sauce
- olive oil
- any other veggies
Now we are ready to begin!
The first thing you need to do is shred the veggies. I used my food processor for this. It is quick and easy! You could also use a cheese grater to shred the veggies if you do not have a food processor.
Next put some soy sauce and olive oil (you may be wondering how much? just a enough to cover the bottom with a layer) in a deep skillet and saute the shredded veggies for about 5-10 minutes.
Once finished, let the mixture cool. Now we will fill each shell with filling and wrap them up.
There you have it! You have successfully made delightful spring rolls. That wasn't so bad now was it? ;)
All that is left is cooking them, which, you could do in one of two ways: deep fry or bake. I bake mine. You can also FREEZE these and cook them later! I usually make a whole bunch, cook some, and freeze the rest. Yumminess whenever you have the craving!
To bake them, place them on a baking sheet and lightly spray all sides with olive oil. This will help them to be crispy. I usually bake them at 350* for about 10-15 minutes, until lightly golden.
Enjoy and have a blessed day friends!
