I do not own a deep fryer for the same reason I choose to not get an ice cream machine; the results could only be tighter pants and frequent sickness. I do still love Asian rolls though and especially for the fact that they use my favorite pre-packaged cole slaw mix. I believe that I have never actually bought a head of cabbage which is kind of sad. Another perk of making these rolls? I get to use that new bottle of liquid amino that I bought. I love it because it really just transfers perfectly for the amount of soy sauce one would ordinarily use in a recipe. These ones are also baked because I don't have a deep fryer but don't let that stop anyone from frying away.
The cole slaw seems like a lot to begin with but mine wilted down significantly more than I was expecting. I think the initial recipe said that it would yield ten rolls but I think I only got five. Maybe I was just supposed to cook it less.
2 cups packaged coleslaw mix
2 chopped green onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp liquid amino or soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 egg white
about 5 egg roll wrappers
1. In a medium skillet, heat up the vegetable oil on medium heat then add the garlic and ginger. Cook for about a minute then add the coleslaw and green onions. Cook for another three minutes and then add the soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook until the mix is completely wilted then remove from heat.
2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Put about two teaspoons of the coleslaw mixture into the center of a wrapper diagonally (see picture). Fold the corners over and roll up. Use a bit of water to seal the edges and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet seam side down. Repeat with the rest of the coleslaw mix. In a small bowl whip up an egg white until frothy. Using a pastry brush, cover the rolls with some of the egg white. Bake for about 7 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Note: I got an incredibly large package of egg roll wrappers. I made banana spring rolls with them and they were so good. The recipe may come soon.
