Homemade Spring Rolls

The hardest thing about making these is chopping the vegetables. They are worth the effort!

¼ cup broccoli, chopped
¼ red pepper, diced
1 cup shredded cabbage, chopped
4 mushrooms, chopped
¼ cup of extra-firm tofu (approx), patted dry with a paper towel and cut in small pieces
¼ cup onion, chopped
½ large carrot, cut in small pieces
1 or 2 tbsp. canola oil (stir fry) plus
¼ cup canola oil (frying spring rolls)
2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
½ tsp crushed red pepper, if desired.
8 egg roll shells


1) Heat 1 or 2 tbsp. canola oil and soy sauce and crushed red pepper (if desired) in wok on medium heat. Add chopped onion and sauté a few minutes.

2) Add broccoli and cabbage and 1 or 2 tbsp. of water.

3) Add carrot and red pepper and stir fry together.

4) Add mushrooms and tofu last. Stir fry mixture together until vegetables are tender. Remove to bowl.
