Homemade Egg Rolls

If you are looking for a late afternoon snack or a light Sunday supper make egg rolls.  I know what you are thinking, they are too difficult and too time consuming.  That’s what I thought.  Guess what, not true.

I used a bunch of stir fry stuff from the fridge:  green onion, savoy cabbage, carrots, and shitake mushrooms (still trying to get the kids to like these!).  Then I stir fried it all up with some fresh ginger and garlic.  I seasoned with soy, sesame oil, and rice vinegar and let cool.

Then I had the kids wrap the the rolls and I flash fried them in an inch of peanut oil in my cast iron skillet.

We had a couple of different dipping sauces, though they do look just the same! Simple tamari in one and a thicker teriyaki sauce in the other.  We also served it with an Thai chili sauce for a kick.

Healthy? Well, not so much.  Fun, definitely.

  3. Any suggestions for a different oil to use? I’d love to make these but can’t use peanut oil due to my son’s allergies. I’d love suggestions…
