Spring Rolls


  • 1 ounce fine cellophane noodle
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 Green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and finely shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 24 spring roll wrappers 


Place the noodles in a bowl and pour over enough boiling water to cover. Let stand for 4 minutes.
Drain, rinse in cold water and drain again.
Cut into 2-inch lengths
Heat the peanut oil in a wok over high heat
Add the garlic, ginger, scallions, beansprouts, cabbage and carrot and fry for a minute.
Stir in the sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine, pepper, cilantro and mint and take off the heat.
Stir in the rice noodles.
Arrange the wrappers on the counter, pointing diagonally.
Spoon a bit of the filling onto the bottom corner of the wrapper.
Roll the point of the wrapper over the filling, then fold the side points inward over the filling.
Continue to roll up the wrapper away from you, using a bit of water to seal the roll if needed.
Brush with oil and bake in a 400 F oven until crispy, about 15-20 minutes.
You may want to flip the spring rolls halfway through baking.
You can also freeze these unbaked and then bake from frozen. This will take about 25 minutes.

About Me

I just love to cook and everything that goes along with food. I cook at home most of the time but I do enjoy eating out once in a while too. I have 2 blogs, one with all my recipes and the other one is all the places that we eat at. My husband and I love to eat and go out. The other day I was looking for a new phone so we were doing our rounds to all the service providers around our house, before we can decide which one to go with. When we went to the Sprint store close to our house we realized that we even though we have been in this area for the past 4 years we have never been to that strip mall. We found a pizza place that looked really good from the outside. That's when we made a New Year's resolution of eating out once a week and try a new restaurant each time. And here I will write my thoughts of the place and what I think of it.
