Thank you so much for stopping by today,
We're going to be in the kitchen
making something good to eat!
If you have visitors at your house this time
of year, they can help with this
fairly simple recipe.
Let's get busy making
Begin by mashing up two, ripe avocados.....
Next, chop up one quarter cup
white onion. Add it to the
Then, chop up about a third of a bunch of
cilantro and add that in.
If you and the group you're feeding do not
care for cilantro, just omit it.
Today, I'm serving this to my husband
and myself. We both like
cilantro, so it's in, this round!
Add a touch of salt....
....and a squirt of lemon juice....
....fresh lemon juice works fine, too!
Stir the entire mixture well.....and you're
ready to make some egg rolls!
In my grocery store, the egg roll
wrappers or skins,
are in the fresh produce area.
Remove one wrapper and place
it on a clean, flat surface.
Place some of the avocado mixture
in the middle of the wrapper.
About two, large heaping spoons worth....
and spread it out a bit.
This next step is the rolling up step...
to me, this is the only slightly
difficult step in this
and it's not crazy hard,
so you'll do fine!
Begin by folding in the sides....
.....then rolling up from the bottom.
To seal the egg roll, dip your finger
into some water and rub it along
the top, unrolled edge....
.....then seal up that egg roll!
Lather, rinse, repeat.....
oh, wait, that's not for egg rolls!
But I bet you know what to do next,
Keep rolling those yummy egg rolls
until you have used up
all the delicious filling
you mixed up.
Two avocados make about
eight egg rolls.....sixteen halves when
I plan on each person I am serving
eating 3 or 4 halves.
It's easy to adjust for the number of
people you'll be serving.
More people, more avocados....more
rolling, rolling, rolling!
Now, back to this batch of egg rolls....
place each completed egg roll onto
a silpat lined or wax paper lined
When you have completed rolling
and placing all the egg rolls,
give each one a quick spray
This will help the egg roll
wrapper crisp up while baking.
Place the baking sheet into a
pre-heated 350 degree oven
for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, check the doneness and
browning of the egg rolls.
If they are beginning to brown they are ready....
if not, let them bake for another 5 minutes.
Do not walk away from them
at this point.....they go from not ready to
Uh-Oh, they burned, very quickly!
Remove them from the baking sheet and
let them cool for 5-7 minutes before
you slice them to serve.
The dipping sauces I usually serve with these
egg rolls are simple.
*Wasabi Mayo- 2 T. mayo mixed with 2-3 tsp. wasabi
*our favorite salsa
*low sodium soy sauce
Slice up the egg rolls and serve.
Be ready for compliments....these little, rolled
treats are good.
If you have any leftover, just pop them into
a zip top bag and store them in the
They will be softer the next day,
but just as yummy!
Husband and I had these one evening
for a light dinner....
we'd had a late, big lunch and
wanted just a little something
These egg rolls make a great appetizer
a nice side addition to a meal
I hope you have a chance to give
these avocado egg rolls a try.
Leave me a note, so I know
you stopped by.
I love reading your comments!
I hope your holidays are everything
you want them to be, Glitterinas!
Hugs to you,
