I'm with everyone else--leave out the meat, use a complementary vegetable substitute.

FYI - Costco sells a great vegetable spring roll with sauce. My family loves them. Of course, it's not as challenging or rewarding as creating your own but when you are in a pinch they work great!

When I make vegetarian egg rolls I use finely shredded cabbage, mushrooms, onions, a little garlic. Depending on what I have on hand, maybe some shredded carrots, celery. I saute them slightly, just enough to get rid of the excess water they might produce to make the rolls soggy, drain, then wrap and fry. I tend to use bottled sauces for dipping since there are so many on the market these days that are so darned good. Oh, yes, you can put nuts in the roll if you're looking for some protein. Peanuts, cashews, macs, almonds go particularly well in Asian cuisines.

if you want a meaty texture without the meat, grill or broil or even stir fry some sliced baby portobello mushrooms with some garlic------delicious!

PS--I also forgot to add that you can also use regular portobello mushrooms and just slice them thinly as well. Don't forget bean sprouts either.
