I haven't had Chinese spring rolls, but I've had and made Thai spring rolls - not the fried ones (well, I've had them, but I haven't made them). I prefer the fresh version. I posted my recipe for it long ago. This time, I used peanut sauce. There's also a recipe for a dipping sauce made with soy sauce, vinegar, mirin and ginger: Thai spring rolls and spicy peanut sauce



This recipe uses rice paper wrappers that are dipped quickly in water to soften them. Don't leave them in too long or they get too soft and tear easily. Lay them on the counter and dab with a towel to remove excess water, then fill. You can replace the shrimp with whatever suits your fancy

These are the wrappers I use:

Would brushing the roll with melted butter still keep them vegetarian and crisp them up at the same time?

Addie, are you referring to the recipe I posted? This one is intended to have a soft wrapper, so you don't cook it at all. If you include chicken or shrimp, they're precooked and chilled. And, imo, butter doesn't go with Asian flavors.

Something with butter is vegetarian but not vegan.

Larry--I assumed you were looking for a recipe for deep-fried Chinese springrolls using eggroll wrappers and not a recipe using rice paper. I have tons of combos for rice paper rolls (summer rolls). I do think it is in the seasoning re: the ingredients and the dipping sauce(s). I love adding mint to the veggies, more of a Vietnamese summer roll.

I think of spring rolls as fresh (not fried) with egg roll wrappers and egg rolls as fried with rice paper wrappers. So it would be helpful for you, Larry, to specify which you want to make

My mom gave me an amazing recipe for spring rolls. Check it out at my blog here.

What I like most about this recipe is that it was not only fun to make, but it was delicious as well! I like recipes where there can be some friend or family member involvement- Nothing makes cooking better than doing it with a friend

Here , or at least at the Chinese restaurant I eat at, the spring rolls are fried , they are almost like a mini egg roll with a thinner skin, but definitely deep fried. So basically, any egg roll filling suggestion would do.

I have had the fresh raw rolls in the rice paper before , which were excellent ( I think I had them at a korean restaurant, and another Asian fusion restaurant. So, although not what I waas looking for in this thread, Being that Chinese night has come and gone in my house this week, Ill take any of the above ( fried w/ egg roll wrappers or Fresh with Rice wrappers) Dont worry if vegetarian or not, Ill worry about any substitutions I feel necessary, but the seasoning would be helpful.

Larry, try my recipe. You'll love it, if you do not I'll pay you back for all the items. It is simple strictly vegetarian. True and tested.

Yes, but Larry has never stated that he was vegan, just vegetarian. My suggestion was just a thought. He doesn't want to fry them. Every time he has asked for assistance, he has always stated baked, not fried.

Looking for Spring Roll Recipe Tonight is Chinese food night at my house. Along with other things, I'll be making spring rolls ( vegetarian). When I get them at the restaurant, they taste great. When I make them at home, they taste good. So, I'm looking for Great ( maybe Im missing something ( other than the meat/ shrimp (just to avoid the bad jokes that will probably follow:rofl:))) So, if any of you guys / gals has any TNT Spring Roll Filling suggestions, that taste right out of the Chinese restaurant kitchen, feel free to share them with me . Thanks , Larry 3 stars 1 reviews
