Veggie Egg Roll pieces on plateI love making egg rolls at home because I can be quite picky about what's put in the middles when I order them at restaurants. Plus it costs so much less! Try these crispy rolls as an appetizer, or as a main dish. I love using soy, vinegar and chili paste as a dipping sauce. Yum!


Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 10 egg rolls


  • 1/3 lb broccoli slaw (or grated broccoli stems, cabbage, carrots)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 pack brown beech mushrooms (any mushrooms will do)
  • 3 green onions
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 10 egg roll wrappers
  • cooking oil


  1. Chop onion into thin slices and diagonally chop the green onions.
  2. sliced onions & green onions
  3. Heat 3 tablespoons of cooking oil in a large wok or large nonstick pan over high heat. Fry the slaw, then add the onions, then mushrooms.
  4. cooking veggies in pan

  5. When they're a bit wilted, add the bean sprouts and green onions. Fry a couple minutes and add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  7. Open the pack of egg roll wrappers and peel them apart very slowly for use. Have a small bowl of water nearby.

  9. Keep the remaining stack in a clean kitchen towel so they do not dry out. Keep any unused wrappers from recipe in the fridge or freezer, wrapped tightly.

  11. Lay out a wrapper diagonally in front of you on a work surface. Place a pile of the cooked veggies near the bottom corner of the wrapper.
  12. adding Veggies to wrapper
  13. Roll the wrapper over and up tightly, not allowing much air between the veggies. Go halfway up.
  14. rolled filled wrapper half way
  15. Fold both sides in over the rolled veggies.
  16. folded corners on filled wrapper
  17. Continue rolling upwards, then add a dab of water to the top corner with your finger to seal the roll shut.

  21. Heat up 1/2 an inch of oil then reduce heat to medium low. If the oil is too hot, the wrapper will break. Add rolls to oil in batches as not to overcrowd the pan. Cook until golden all over, then drain on paper towels. Slice in half diagonally if desired, and serve with your favourite sauces.

Great flavor and interesting, fairly simple and can use whatever is at hand. I have several versions of this recipe - one of the neat things about it is that there are so many variations.

Blanch celery, cabbage, and green onions in 1 cup boiling water. Add all ingredients together in large skillet and cook until thoroughly mixed and hot.


Refrigerate. Fill each egg roll with about 2 tablespoons filling.
