I know after all that Thanksgiving food, a little Chinese food sounds really good. We actually have an all you can eat buffet near us, but I choose to try and make my own. I can watch the ingredients and calories. Since I am back on WW I can also try to make them delicious with the least amount of points.
I have made these a while back, as a baked egg roll option. I really like them baked, but my husband seems to think that it is lacking that fried taste. So today I made them a little differently, giving my coconut oil a try. Let me say I did not taste any coconut at all.
I also made these out of necessity to use up the big bag of coleslaw mix I bought before the holiday. So let me get to writing out this recipe for you.
Vegetable Egg Rolls Fried in Coconut Oil
|20 item(s) egg roll wrapper(s)|
|5 cup(s) packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)|
|1/2 cup(s) fresh mushroom(s) (dice in small pieces)|
|1 tsp ginger root|
|1 Tbsp soy sauce|
|1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s)|
|1 medium uncooked scallion(s) (dice in small pieces)|
|1/4 cup of diced water chestnuts|
|3 tablespoons of coconut oil|
1) I place all the ingredients in a pan and saute together for just a few minute, just to soften a little bit.
2) lay out the egg rolls and fill just about maybe 3 tablespoons right in the middle and roll egg roll style (instructions are on the back)
3) Put in 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a shallow pan and put in 3 egg rolls at a time. They brown fast so I turn then over and even over on their edges.
4) Brown until the way you like. I did all 20 in the 3 tablespoons, but you may find you need more just adjust the numbers.
Here is a few pictures on how to roll them. Be sure to lay them seam side down always, until they are fried.
They were really a great dish for right after all those heavy thanksgiving dishes.
Getting ready here in GA to graduate my wonderful daughter from West GA University as with a Math Education Degree. My daughter has even got her first teaching job starting in January. Time waits for no man.
So we are always busy, busy.. Keep in touch always. I will try to get back here off and on during the holiday, just to share a few of my funny creations.
So my friends. .. enjoy life.. make it yours..
