VEgan Vegetable Egg Rolls

Egg rolls are one of the yummiest treats when getting Chinese takeout! I recently came across vegan egg roll wrappers at my local grocery store. I was really excited to find them.

I wanted to keep this recipe simple so it can even be made on a busy weeknight. For the filling, I use a bagged shredded super blend mix. It includes:

  • brussels sprouts
  • napa cabbage
  • kohlrabi
  • broccoli
  • carrots
  • kale
use any shredded vegetable blend that you can find

These vegetables are all great for your body and have tons of nutrients! You can ways use a coleslaw bagged mix or shred your own vegetables to fill the egg rolls. You will saute the mix with some garlic and sesame seeds to make your filling.

I use my air fryer to make these egg rolls, but they will be just as awesome in the oven. They get done a little faster in the air fryer, so if you are like me and are always on the go, I suggest investing in an air fryer.

Folding egg rolls is fairly easy. Make sure you use a small bowl of water and wet the edges when you fold in the egg roll wrapper to prevent it from coming apart while cooking.
