Here is a simple and delicious recipe for spring rolls.
spring roll pastry
1/4 cabbage, cut up finely
2 zucchinis, grated
1-2 Cups cooked rice (i use brown rice)
1 tbs soy sauce
Mix up all ingredients (except pastry), until well combined. Cut pastry into squares and add filling. Roll into spring rolls. Place on greased oven trays and bake in oven about 180 degreese until browned.
Serve hot (or warm for littlies) and with sweet chilli sauce for mum & dad.
Seeing as I have told you all about this recipe, I thought now would be a good time to then tell you about my "vegetable pasties" recipe. I came up with this recipe whilst playing around with some leftover spring roll mixture.
Add to the above mixture; another grated zucchini, 1-2 grated potatoes (or sweet potatoes) about 1 cup of grated pumpkin, 1 grated carrot, 1 finely chopped onion, some peas, some corn, about 1 tbs dried mixed herbs, about 1/2 cup of bbq sauce, 1 large handful of grated cheese, 1 pkt french onion soup mix and whatever else you may have at the time which you think may make it taste yummy, mix it all together really well and this time get PUFF PASTRY, cut into quarters, place aprox 1-2 tbsp of mixture on a diaganol angle, fold up edges and seal. Brush combined 1 x egg white with 1 tbs water over pasties and place on greased oven trays. Bake at about 180 degreese for aprox 20 mins or so, or at least until browned.
Tastes delicious, serve with tomato sauce.
My sixteen month old LOVES both of these recipes, and so does her mummy & daddy!
Both freeze and re-heat really well.
