Before we get to the amazing recipe I’ve got for you today, I need to take a moment to tell you about my most recent failure.
I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday (45 minutes away too!) at 12:45. I get there, and they told me my appointment was at 10:45. I feel so bad. And so lame. I just wasted that Doctor’s time. And now I have to re-sechedule my appointment, and it probably won’t be for another 3 weeks. Uggghhhh.
These things hardly ever happen to me. Normally I check, recheck, and double check to make sure I’ve got the right time for things. Well not this time. I just don’t understand how I let this happen, lol.
Anyway, so I got home and decided to make some baked veggie egg rolls. Because they are delicious, and I thought they would make me feel better after my fail. They did. For the most part anyway, haha.
They’re pretty simple, and delicious as well! And they’re baked, not fried, so they’re much healthier than normal egg rolls. They’re not quite as crispy, but still just as good!
Baked Veggie Egg Rolls
1t olive oil
1 pound shredded cabbage (I used a coleslaw mix with carrots in it)
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 t ground ginger
1/8 t pepper
1/4 t salt
2 T soy sauce
1 T cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
14 egg roll wrappers
Heat the oil up in a pan and sauté the cabbage for about 5 minutes. Whisk the soy sauce, water, and cornstarch together , and add it to the cabbage with the green onions and spices. Cook while stirring for 2 more minutes.
You want to place them on a pan with parchment, or a silpat like I used. I like using a silpat mat because then I don’t use up a whole bunch of parchment paper. Spray the tops with cooking oil spray, or lightly brush them with oil.
Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees F, then turn them over, spray or brush the new tops with oil, and bake for another 6 minutes.
These egg rolls are amazing. There’s not really much inside of them, just cabbage and onions, but I like them simple. If you want a little crunch, you can add water chestnuts, but the texture of those freaks me out, so I went without them. I know they’re not authentic egg rolls and what not, but they’re pretty good for a quick egg roll fix!
I could eat these every day. I plan on making some more and freezing them so I can pop a few out and bake them when I’m in the mood. : ) om nom nom. delicious.
Welp, that’s all for today folks, and I’ll see you tomorrow with a muffin recipe!
Have you ever missed an appointment because you got the time wrong? Do you like egg rolls?
