Healthy Baked Spring Rolls

Have you ever met someone who, when asked what they would like for dinner, requests a bowl of mini spring rolls? I have. If it wasn’t for his infatuation with chips, I would have probably dubbed him Mr Springrollconnoisseur… And, might I add, he is very proud of the fact!

Nevertheless, for a while now, I have been planning to make a batch of vege-packed, oven-baked spring rolls for him to try and for me to be able to enjoy. I also made a batch of oven-baked duck spring rolls after seeing this post, and to satisfy my always present duck cravings…

Now I know you’re thinking “they are too fiddly and too time-consuming to make at home”. But I assure you that they are not. In fact, the 7 year old kitchen assistant singlehandedly made a batch of 20 for our entrée tonight! They were crispy, slightly rustic looking – not one was the same, and this particular batch was probably a little under-filled, perhaps only because my protegé has small hands and her chin pokes only slightly above the benchtop… Still, the point is if she can make them, anyone can!

Feel free to experiment with your own fillings, and make sure to pack the ingredients right in for a more nutritious and more satisfying roll.

    There is nothing better than a crunchy home made spring roll – these look so good I’d happily surprise H with them.

    I’ve never tried to re-heat spring rolls. I’ve always tossed them away thinking they’d be crap left over. I will definitely try it.

  4. They look delicious, and well done to Ms 7 your talented rolling assistant. I have made and frozen (pre cooking), it works well.
