Bountiful Baked Spring Rolls

Today, I conquered my first Pinterest challenge! Well, sort of…

I chose Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls as my first challenge. The original recipe, from Annie’s Eats, caught my eye because it is a vegetarian dish. The problem is that I didn’t really think about my family’s tastes when I picked this recipe. My husband would love it, but my kids and I are not big fans of Southwestern flavors.

Initially, I planned to create my own flavor profile, while still using most of the main ingredients in the recipe: egg roll wrappers, black beans, corn and spinach. But, when I looked in my refrigerator, I realized it was filled with a bounty of great looking produce – including spinach picked fresh from our garden.

At that point, I changed course and decided to use those ingredients, along with a bit of Soy Vay Teriyaki Sauce, to make spring rolls. The spring rolls turned out great, and my husband did all of the chopping. That is a definitely a win-win for me.

    Look great! I bought spring roll wrappers months ago, and just found them when I cleaned out the pantry. I really need to make them soon

      We have made them 2 more times since we made the first ones. Each time, they’ve had different veggies in them because we’ve had different veggies in the fridge/garden. I am going to try experimenting with the egg roll wrappers – the possibilities are endless.
