Vegetarian eggrolls have always been my favorite part of a Chinese or Thai meal, but it is sometimes difficult to find ones that are vegetarian or that don’t have questionable ingredients like MSG in them. In addition, it seems like you get very little quantity for the price you pay. So, many years ago I came up with my own recipe for these Very Veggie Vegetarian Eggrolls!
Making these amazing Very Veggie Vegetarian Eggrolls at home allows you to make a large quantity at a very affordable price. With such a savings, and with lots of fresh ingredients, veggie eggrolls can become less of an appetizer and more of a meal that the whole family (and guests too!) can enjoy!
In fact, it is so easy to make a large batch of these, and they are so delicious, that they have become a requested favorite at many of our family gatherings. My parents were recently visiting and they were delighted to find out that I would be making my amazing Very Veggie Vegetarian Eggrolls!
They are also great for meal prepping because they can be frozen and reheated in the oven later. This makes for a very quick and satisfying meal on one of those hectic nights when you just don’t feel like cooking, or for a healthy lunch or midday snack.
Although this is an easy recipe, it does take a bit of time to wrap and fry the rolls, so plan accordingly. It will probably take about 40-50 minutes to make a batch of about 15 rolls.
* A special note for vegans
Eggroll wrappers are not always vegan friendly. They often contain eggs, thus the name “eggrolls”. If you are vegan, make sure you check the ingredients and look for ones that don’t contain egg. I was able to find a vegan-friendly brand at my local King Soopers grocery store. You can also replace the traditional “wonton” style wrappers with brown rice-paper wrappers, or make your own from scratch. I just found a vegan, gluten-free and peanut-free eggroll wrapper mix on Amazon. I have not tried making it myself, but I will try this in the future and share the recipe with you.
This, of course, would add some work to what is otherwise an easy recipe.
Our favorite way to enjoy these Very Veggie Vegetarian Eggrolls is with some sweet-chili sauce and a sprinkle of tamari.
I know you and your family will enjoy them too!
