Fresh Spring Rolls
November 7, 2013
These baked spring rolls are filled with rice noodles, chicken mince and vegetables. They provide an alternate, healthier version to being fried.This baked spring roll recipe can be easily modified to include any vegetables that you have on hand. The vegetables are best grated as the cook time is low.
Add these to your next entertaining menu. They are a satisfying finger food item, substantial and sure to be popular with a crowd. The spring roll wrappers can be found in the supermarket freezer area, or Asian food stores. This entertaining option will make an equally popular family meal if served with a side of salad. The cook time is based on them being rolled not too full of filling. This allows the ingredients to cook through.
An alternative to fried spring rolls, these vegetable filled parcels are perfect finger food for entertaining, or a weekend dinner served with a fresh salad from the garden
