Meatless Monday with Baked Vegetable Egg Rolls

Hello and welcome (back) to the blog and thank you for joining us for another Meatless Monday vegetarian recipe share. The Meatless Monday pledge aims to reduce meat consumption 15% by eliminating it just one day per week to preserve personal and planetary health. Miratel supports this great initiative and includes it as part of its CSR business strategies to spread awareness of the impact of food choices on our environment.

I found today’s recipe for Baked Egg Rolls at For the Love of Cooking which is a fantastic website that is lovingly cared for by Pam with great recipes and photos. Although it is not a vegetarian recipe website, it does offer plenty of vegetarian options plus you can always adapt a meat recipe to meatless with a little creativity. These baked egg rolls are crunchy, fresh, delicious and easy to make. I have copied the recipe direct from For the Love of Cooking and included some of Pam’s images to help with wrapping and so you can see the finished product.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cups of savoy cabbage, chopped
  • 2 cups of shredded carrots
  • 2 cups of bean sprouts
  • 1 can of water chestnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp green onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 14 egg roll wraps
  • Sweet chili dipping sauce or sweet and sour sauce (for dipping)

Directions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot add the cabbage, sprouts, carrots, chestnuts and ginger to the pan and cook, stirring frequently for 4-5 minutes, until the vegetables just begin to wilt but still remain a little bit crisp. Mix the corn starch with the water and mix thoroughly. Add the corn starch mixture and soy sauce to the pan along with the green onions. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Place two tablespoons of the cooled mixture on the center of the egg roll wrap. Fold the bottom up over the filling. Next, fold the two sides over, making it look like an envelope, then roll it up like a burrito.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the rolled up egg rolls on a baking sheet. Once you have rolled them all, spray the top of each egg roll with cooking spray.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes then turn them over. Bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve with sweet chili sauce or sweet and sour sauce.

Serve these baked egg rolls with this excellent raw Asian Noodle Salad. Feel free to add or subtract the vegetables to suit your palate – you can even add some chili peppers if you like your food hot. These baked egg rolls are perfect for lunch, dinner or appetizer.

  4. I made these for a Chinese New Year luncheon I was hosting. They were surprisingly easy to make and didn’t take long at all. One thing I did wrong was over cook the veggies in the pan. The end product filling was a little mushy. Next time I’ll know not to cook them on the stove top as long.

  7. It’s possible I’m wrong about this, but aren’t egg roll wrappers made with egg? That would make these vegetarian, but not vegan. Could spring roll wrappers be substituted, do you think?

  8. Good point. Yes, most egg roll wrappers do contain eggs. There are egg-free options available now but spring roll wrappers could be used as a substitute as they are more readily available. Thanks so much.

  10. They should be available at most grocery stores. If you can’t find a vegan variety, you can get spring roll wrappers as a substitute. If you can’t find them at any grocery stores, I guess you can try asking an Asian restaurant in your area if you can buy the wrappers from them. If you can’t find them anywhere, that might be a viable option for you. Good luck and thanks for reading.

    Do you think these egg rolls could be frozen? And if so, how would I reheat them?

  12. I had the same question, can these egg rolls be frozen and then baked later?

  13. Yes they can be. Make sure they are completely cooled and you can freeze them in a resealable freezer bag (removing as much air as possible) or in an air-tight container and eat them within 2-3 months.

    I hope that helps :)

  14. I made this and they turned out great. So easy, my 5 year old rolled them! I used cole slaw mix but had to double it. Next time, maybe throw in ground pork or shrimp but they were delicious as is. Paired with shrimp fried rice that I made….So better and cheaper than takeout!

  15. If I want to freeze these, should I bake them first or just freeze them right after rolling them?
