Vegetable Spring Rolls & Superfood Salad

1 spoon difficulty rating

15-40 minutes

Less time if using ready-made spring rolls. Adjust quantities according to servings.

Serves: 1-4

Vegetable Spring Rolls & Superfood Salad

We offer a choice of convenience spring rolls and salads - see the pictures below for a few suggestions. OR you can do a home made version. You choose!

The home-made version is delicious and not difficult. Get all the food and equipment ready, remember to heat the oil in plenty of time - and go for it!

Alternatively, most supermarket spring rolls are suitable for vegans (but do check as sometimes dairy is added). They are best heated in the oven to crisp them up but a microwave will do at a pinch. 

For a filling nutritious lunch, serve with avocado, edamame bean (fresh soya), walnut and mixed green leaf salad. Mmmm. Fresh edamame salads are now widely available too.

Ready-made Spring Rolls & Salad

1. Heat the oven according to the packet instructions.
2. Place the spring rolls on an oven tray and heat through. 
3. Meanwhile, make accompaniments. If making the avocado, edamame bean, walnut and mixed green leaf salad...

  • Place the leaves in a bowl, top with the avocado slices, edamame beans and walnuts.

4. Alternatively, use a ready-made edamame salad and add some extras!


Home-made Spring Rolls

3. Stir-fry for 1 minute, then remove from heat and place ingredients on a plate.

4. Wipe wok clean with kitchen paper.

5. Put 1 tbsp of filling on one corner of a spring roll wrapper, then roll it up, wrapping in ends to form a neat tube.

6. Use a little oil to stick down last corner, then secure roll with a toothpick.

7. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.

8. Heat oil for deep frying in a wok, pop in a batch of spring rolls and cook over a moderate heat for 3-4 minutes until golden brown on all sides.

9. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

10. Repeat with remaining spring rolls.

11. Remove toothpicks before serving and serve hot, with your chosen dipping sauce in a separate bowl.
