Spring Rolls!!

One of my New Years Resolutions, or RULES as I like to call them, is to not eat any deep fried foods.  The main obstacle I see in following this rule is my love of Spring Rolls.  So  I decided to make an experimental batch of oven baked vegie spring rolls. And I must say they were quite a success!!

TO make the filling, I blitzed a variety of vegies in my little food processor - carrots, zuccinni, capsicum, onion, until they were fairly finely chopped.  You could also grate them as an alternative. I then cooked these in a frying pan with a little vegetable oil, along with some garlic, ginger and chilli.  I also added soy sauce to taste, and a pinch or so of brown sugar.  And some bean thread noodles that had been soaked in water till soft.  I also added some Quorn mince.  Basically, anything I could find!!

Once the filling was cooked and tasting delicious, I set it aside to cool. 

Then, using spring roll wrappers I bought from the freezer section of Woolworths, I rolled up my spring rolls, and gave them a brief spray with some spray on cooking oil.  I baked the rolls in a hot oven until they were golden brown and crispy


  1. Gosh they look good. Really good.
    I am not a fan of deep fried either, so I hear where you are coming from there. Although hot chips (home made) are a weakness :(

  2. I can't believe they hacked you! That is crapola- great that you have started again though.
