Delicious Crunchy Vegan Spring Rolls

by | December 12, 2017

This delicious crunchy vegan spring roll recipe is the only way I can get my daughter to eat “egg rolls.” Perhaps it’s because we created the recipe together? Or because they contain kid-friendly ingredients? Either way, I love feeding these delicious, healthy rolls to kids and having them ask for seconds! Veggies for the win!


  • Two teaspoons toasted (dark) sesame oil
  • Two large cloves garlic, finely chopped or pressed
  • Two teaspoons minced ginger root
  • Two cups finely chopped or grated green cabbage
  • One cup grated carrots
  • ½ cup finely chopped kale (thick stems removed)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  • 8 rice paper wraps (white or brown)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted (dark) sesame oil

Sweet and sour, sweet chili sauce, or other Asian dipping sauce of your choice



1. Heat a wok or large skillet over medium heat and add the two teaspoons toasted sesame oil, garlic, and ginger. Stir-fry for thirty seconds, then add the cabbage, carrots, kale, and salt. Stir and cook for another two minutes, stirring often, just until the cabbage is lightly wilted. Remove from heat. Preheat your oven (or air fryer) to 400° F.

2. Soak each rice paper wrap in water for about ten seconds. Place on a flat surface and put ¼ cup filling in the middle. Fold the bottom of the wrap up over the filling, then fold the sides in. Next, roll all the way up. Basically, you’re making little Asian burritos. Do this seven more times.

3. Brush (or spray) a baking sheet lightly with oil (or, if using an air fryer, the bottom of the basket) to prevent sticking. Place the veggie rolls on the sheet or in the basket (don’t let them touch each other). Swipe the outsides of each wrap evenly with the remaining toasted sesame oil. Bake for ten minutes, then gently flip over. Bake for another ten minutes.

NOTE: If you’re using an air fryer, you’ll want to cook the vegan spring rolls for just ten minutes total—no need to flip. Serve with the sauce of your choice and enjoy!
