Make Something Cool Every Day: Baked Spring Rolls

It's a two post day!

Today's MSCE post is the baked spring rolls we had for dinner. Super Easy, Super Yummy, and Super Slimmer than your traditional fried roll.

I used the egg roll wrappers from the grocery store (mine keeps them right in the vegetable section near bagged lettuces). Also from the same section I grab a bag of shredded mixed veggies. This one has carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and red cabbage (it lives next to the coleslaw mix in my store)

In a bowl mix the bag of veggies with a few tablespoons of soy sauce and some salt and pepper. Microwave for 2 min or so (or until
 the veggies are tender but not over cooked).

Then put a few spoons of the veggie mix onto a wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper with a bit of water (so they will stick together when you roll them). And roll em' up like burritos.

Put them onto a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Then also spray the tops of the rolls lightly with the cooking spray.

I baked them at about 400 for 15  min (or until they are nice crispy golden brown) 

Steve said YUM, so I think they are a success.

I think they'd also be great with a bit of shredded chicken and some orange zest inside. Really you could also use any type of veggie you like instead of what I used- water chestnuts, sprouts, bamboo shoots, whatever... really this is totally one of those throw anything you have together type of recipes!

  1. I have always shied away from attempting a spring roll and I didn't want to deal with all the chopping of the different types of veggis - I had never thought to use bagged veggies - sound much less intimidating!

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

  2. Hi Kathryn,

    Thanks for leaving a comment! I had never wanted to fool around with a traditional egg roll either- but this is really simple- I promise.

  3. those look yummy. I used to make homemade eggrolls but the deep frying is tedious. this looks like a great idea!

    ps, i included it in my MSCE links here today:
