Who can resist ordering the appetizer egg rolls with a Chinese take out order? No one!
There’s nothing like the savory aroma and crunchy texture of a warm eggroll with all those juicy vegetables inside. So we made it our task to find a recipe that savors the flavors of a traditional eggroll but without the carbs or fried component. We added some special seasonings to keep it authentic, plus the new twist with our Micro Wasabi™ Microgreens. What a perfect fit!
Our Micro Wasabi’s™ attractive bright green leaves are bursting with spicy zing, just like fresh wasabi, only a tad milder. They add flavor and bulk to this recipe while staying true to the anticipated ‘eggroll’ flavor. In fact, Micro Wasabi™ is a perfect addition to sushi, nigiri, hand rolls, and many other Asian dishes. Let's gather ingredients and get started!
For this recipe, the secret is to sauté everything on low heat until fully marinated, then eat warm, like a stir-fry. Each one of our seasonings is key to flavor complexity, and you won’t miss the fried wrapper, we promise!
