Vegetarian Spring Rolls Variation
Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Equipment: French Chef Knife, Cutting Board, Kitchen Machine food cutter, 3-quart stainless Mixing Bowl, 1-quart stainless Mixing Bowl, 13-inch Chef Pan or 6-quart Stockpot with Steamer Rack, and 4 ½-quart Dutch oven cover
Soak bean sprouts or bean threads in warm water for about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Using the food cutter, cut carrots, red onion, and green cabbage into 3-quart Mixing Bowl, add chopped red pepper and minced garlic, soy sauce, ginger and beaten eggs. Mix well.
In the 1-quart Mixing Bowl, combine ½ cup (120 ml) water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch, mix well, (will be used to seal edges of spring rolls).
Place spring roll wrappers on cutting board; place about 2 tablespoons of vegetables mixture one-third the way up the spring roll wrapper. “Burrito” roll each wrapper, by folding corners over filling forming a lightly packed log shaped roll. Fold side edges over and roll to end of wrapper. Seal edges with cornstarch and water mixture.
NOTE: Keep wrappers moist prior to rolling, a damp paper towel place over wrappers before use will do the trick. If they should dry out, lightly dampen with a sprinkle of water prior to filling and rolling.
Spring Rolls may be deep fried or steamed.
In the 13-inch (33 cm) Chef Pan, heat 2-inches of oil on medium heat. Fry 2 to 3 rolls at a time until they are firm and golden brown.
In the 6-quart Stockpot, bring 2 to 3-inches of water to a boil. Spray Steamer Rack with cooking spray. Place wrapped Spring Rolls on Steamer Rack, cover with 4 ½-quart Dutch oven cover and steam to heat through. To keep hot leave Dutch oven cover on, turn off heat, and Spring Rolls will remain warm for 1 hour.
