  1. I can’t wait to try these!
    I might fry a couple egg roll wrappers for some crunch on the side.
    I know, killing the beauty of the simplicity of this recipe, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
    And it’d still be simpler the original .
    Thank you so much for posting this, so glad I found you and your website, I’m gonna go binge on some good dream’n eatin’ readin’!

  2. I tried this egg roll dish for dinner tonight. A really nice meal on par to having similar in takeaway! Definitely will make it again & it seemed so healthy 🙂

  3. Also delicious next day, inside egg rolls. We enjoyed generous portions of this, made as-written, for one meal, with fresh mango slices and a small dinner roll as sides. The following day, I briefly warmed the leftovers and used them to fill 6 egg roll wrappers. Placed on a oil-sprayed cookie sheet and sprayed each egg roll generously with vegetable oil. Baked at 425 degrees, 20 minutes. Nice to have TWO quick meals from one base recipe.

  4. oh my gosh – was this fantastic! My bro is vegan and he is going to try it with tofu. So good. Making it again this week.
