Baked Vegetable Spring Rolls


For the Vegetable Spring Rolls:

  • 2 oz. rice noodle vermicelli
  • 3-4 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1½ cups finely chopped shiitake mushroom caps
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts separated and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 3 cups shredded napa cabbage
  • ½ cup julienned carrots (about 1 carrot)
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • ½ tbsp. rice vinegar
  • ½ tbsp. brown sugar
  • about 10 vegan spring roll wrappers (made from wheat flour, not rice paper wraps)

For the Peanut Sesame Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • about 2 tbsp. water


Make the Vegetable Spring Rolls:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add rice noodles and soak according to package directions. Drain into a colander and rinse with cold water. Set Aside.
  2. Coat the bottom of a large skillet with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and sesame oil, and place over medium heat. When oil is hot, add shiitakes in an even layer. Allow to cook until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Raise heat to high. Add white parts of scallions, garlic, ginger, cabbage and carrots to skillet. Stir-fry just until cabbage begins to wilt, about 1 minute. Add noodles, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar and green parts of scallions to skillet. Flip a few times to incorporate and remove from heat.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment and brush lightly with vegetable oil.
  4. Transfer cabbage mixture to a mesh strainer or a plate lined with a few layers of paper towel to drain.
  5. Fill a small bowl with water. Place a spring roll wrapper on work surface at an diagonal, with one of the corners pointing towards you. Scoop up 2-3 tablespoonfuls of cabbage mixture, being careful not to pick up too much liquid. Place mixture in a two inch long strip onto spring roll wrapper, about two inches in from the corner pointing at you, then fold the corner over mixture. Wrap the sides inward over the fold, then roll the filled portion away from you, tucking tightly as you go. Dip your fingers into the water bowl and moisten the corner farthest from you before folding it over the roll to close everything up. Place roll, seam side down, on baking sheet. Repeat until all wrappers and filling are used.
  6. Brush rolls with oil. Bake until lightly browned and crispy, 13-15 minutes.

Make the Peanut Sesame Dipping Sauce:
