Easy Cabbage Spring Rolls [Vegan]
- 1 package of pre-made wonton or spring roll wrappers (you'll need 20-25 wrappers)
- 1 bag (14 oz) of shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons ginger powder
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Oil for frying
- Extra soy sauce for dipping
- Heat a frying pan over medium heat.
- Once the pan is hot, add in the shredded cabbage and soy sauce.
- Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is soft. ○ If the cabbage starts to stick to the pan, add a small splash of water.
- Add in the sesame oil and spices. Stir to combine, and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let the filling cool to room temperature.
- Using a clean frying pan, fill the pan with 1 inch of oil, and heat on low.
- Now it's time to wrap the spring rolls.
- Take one wrapper and place it on a clean surface, with a flat side facing you.
- Place 1-2 tbsp of the cabbage mixture towards the bottom of the wrapper.
- Lightly wet the edges of the wrapper, then roll it like a burrito folding in the side edges tightly. ○ I like to keep a small dish of water close by and use my finger to wet the edges of the wrapper.
- Place the spring roll seam-side down on a cutting board until you have about 5-10 spring rolls wrapped, or however many will fit in your frying pan.
- Once the oil in the pan is hot, place the spring rolls, seam-side down, in the pan. You can fill the pan, but make sure the spring rolls aren't touching each other.
- Fry the spring rolls, turning them every few minutes or so, until all the sides are brown and crispy.
- While the first batch of spring rolls is frying, you can continue to roll the rest of them. You should be able to make at least 20-25 rolls.
- Remove the fried spring rolls from the pan and transfer them to a drying rack to cool. You can also place them on a paper towel-lined plate if you don't have a drying rack.
- Continue frying the rest of the spring rolls.
- Let them cool, then serve with extra soy sauce for dipping.
