What ingredients do you need to make vegetable egg rolls?
Don’t let vegan egg rolls scare you away. Seriously, this recipe is so quick to come together. It’s absolutely a breeze making them! And I love that you only need 10 ingredients to make a meal!
The ingredients that you need for vegan egg rolls are:
- Sesame oil
- Tri-colored Coleslaw mix
- Alfalfa sprouts
- Green onions
- Low sodium soy sauce
- Rice wine vinegar
- Vegan Egg Roll wrappers
How do you make vegan egg rolls?
As quickly as you read how many ingredients you need is about how long it takes you to get these vegan egg rolls together. Okay, so I’m exaggerating a little bit, but seriously it’s really easy to make.
Heat your sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, add the entire package of coleslaw mix and broccoli. You want to stir fry this in the oil, constantly moving around until the cabbage has started to wilt. This only take about 2-3 minutes.
After that, you’re going to want to add in your green onions, ginger, garlic, low sodium soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar. Stir fry together really well over the next 7-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
The hardest part is that you now have to wait. The mixture needs to cool before you put it in the vegan egg roll wrappers. We put in the fridge for an hour, but you could also place it in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes if you are running short on time.
To assemble the vegetable egg rolls, you are going to follow the directions on the package of vegan egg roll wrappers that you purchased.
For our package (Twin Dragon vegan egg roll wrappers), we put water on each of the four corners. Pointed one edge towards us. Filled the bottom third with 3 tablespoons of mixture, small amount of alfalfa sprouts, and then rolled up according to package.
Place egg rolls on a very lightly sprayed baking sheet and cook at 425 for 15 minutes.
Do I have to bake vegan egg rolls?
No! You could also heat 6 inches of oil in a wok or a deep fryer. Once the temperature is around 350 degrees, you would fry for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown on all sides.
Another alternative for these vegetable egg rolls would be to air fry them at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, then flip and cook for 4 more minutes.
Where can I buy vegan egg roll wrappers?
We have seen egg free egg roll wrappers at most of our local grocery stores (like Shoprite for example) near the section where the tofu is. We have also seen at stores like Whole Foods.
What are meals that go with this?
The absolutely perfect meal to go with these would be our chickpea, cashew, and broccoli with garlic sauce skillet! Ready in under 30 minutes!
Other vegan Asian-inspired meal options that you may want to try are:
- Pineapple Fried Rice
- Vegan Chicken Fried Rice
- Broccoli Tofu Stir Fry
- Kung Pao Inspired Tofu
- Grilled Teriyaki Cauliflower Steaks
- Or for a light side dish if your vegan egg rolls are the main course, try these marinated Asian cucumbers
Can I make this Top 8 Allergy Friendly?
The two allergens that we are looking at in our recipe are the soy sauce and the egg roll wrappers for containing wheat (gluten).
For the egg roll wrappers, you could try coconut wraps if you don’t have a coconut allergy or spring roll wraps although you wouldn’t fry those at the end.
Another option would be to have unstuffed egg rolls in a bowl without any wrappers.
Can I prep these vegetable egg rolls ahead of time?
There’s a few options you have if you want to prep these ahead of time.
First, you can completely make the recipe from start to finish, then when you are ready to eat them, place them back in the oven for 5 minutes on each side to crisp back up.
Another option would be to just make the filling and you can store that in the fridge for up to 7 days. Then, just use to fill the vegan egg roll wrappers and finish out the remaining part of the recipe from there.
