Vegetarian Egg Rolls

Vegetarian egg rolls

Egg rolls are the classic Chinese finger food. Crispy on the outside, savory and hot on the inside. Make these egg rolls and freeze them for later or fry immediately. Always eat egg rolls freshly fried, because leftover egg rolls just aren't the same.


All Ingredients

1 (627g) cabbage, shredded 3 minutes
2 (210g) carrot, shredded 3 minutes
7 (77g) shiitake, sliced 1 minute
3 cloves (16g) garlic, minced 1 minute
2 tbsps (23g) ginger, minced 1 minute
1 (147g) onion, thinly sliced 1 minute
2 (170g) baked tofu, sliced matchsticks 1 minute
1 tbsp (14g) garlic oil
1 tbsp (14g) sesame oil
3 tbsps (42g) sake
3 tbsps (42g) soy sauce
2 tsps (12g) salt
½ tsp (3g) sugar
½ tsp (3g) black pepper
20 (462g) egg roll wrapper


  1. In a frying pan, preheat an inch or so of oil on medium high heat. 1 minute
  2. In a large wok, heat the garlic and sesame oil on medium heat. When the wok is hot, add the garlic, ginger, and onions to saute for for 1 minute. 5 minutes
  3. When the fragrance of garlic, ginger, and onions have emerged, add the tofu and shiitake mushrooms. Saute for about 1 minute. 1 minute
  4. Add the shredded carrots and cabbage and stir thoroughly. Add the sake, soy sauce, salt, sugar, and black pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes and keep stirring. 5 minutes
  5. The filling should be ready when the carrots are fully cooked and the cabbages have become soft and wilted. When it is ready, place the filling in a large colander to drain the released liquids. 1 minute
  6. Begin wrapping the egg rolls. You'll need to vary the amount of filling to use, depending on the size of the wrapper. To seal, each egg roll, use water or a mixture of water and flour. It will seem like you are sealing an envelope. 20 minutes
  7. With a thermometer, measure the temperature of the frying oil. It should be about 400F. 1 minute
  8. Fry each side of the egg rolls until golden brown. This is very quick in 400F oil, so keep a close eye once you've placed the egg rolls in the oil. 20 minutes
  9. Enjoy immediately with sweet and sour sauce! 1 minute
