Crunchy vegetable and prawns spring rolls

By 18/02/2013

Spring rolls have always been a popular snack.  They make a great starter and an excellent appetizer. Most people would have had them in Chinese restaurants or supermarkets but how about making your own?

I have used some leftover filo pastry I had in the fridge. Of course you can make your own if you like but I honestly find it tricky to make so it is one of those things I prefer to buy.

Usually spring rolls should be fried but for a lighter version I decided to bake them instead. Brushing them with oil will give them a nice crunchy bite and a "bronze" colour  and they will be equally tasty.

  • Prep Time : 40 minutes
  • Cook Time : 50 minutes

Instructions

Wash the vegetables and with the help of a mandolin slice them into small strips ( you can also use just your knife)

Chop the onion finely and stir fry it in a pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil.

    Hi Alida, I love spring rolls but don’t like it deep fried. I like these healthier version that are baked. Thanks for sharing, now I want to go get some filo pastry.

    I love these spring rolls are oven baked instead of fried. And the filling sounds really tasty.

    Hi Ros,
    Yes you can prepare them in advance. They heat up in the oven OK.
