Baking instead of deep-frying these popular Chinese appetizers allows us to serve up egg rolls for a mere fraction of their pre-renovated version.

Ingredients

uncooked Chinese cabbage

1 head(s), outer leaves removed, shredded

uncooked carrot(s)

2 medium, peeled and shredded

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s), minced

uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium, white and green parts, chopped

ginger root

1 Tbsp, fresh, minced or 1/2 tsp dried

low sodium soy sauce

1 Tbsp

cornstarch

2 tsp

sesame oil

1 tsp

egg roll wrapper(s)

8 item(s), about 1/2 oz each

olive oil cooking spray

4 spray(s), or enough to coat egg rolls

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place cabbage in a microwavable dish and cover. Microwave on high until wilted, about 4 minutes; drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add carrots, garlic, scallions, ginger, soy sauce, cornstarch and oil; mix well.
  3. Arrange egg roll wrappers on a clean, dry surface. Spoon cabbage mixture diagonally onto each wrapper. Fold over one corner to cover filling. Fold up both corners. Moisten edges of remaining flap with water and roll up wrapper jellyroll style until sealed. Transfer egg rolls to prepared baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Serve hot.
