Everything In The Frig Egg Rolls

Well since our pot stickers episode, I have been on an Asian roll...get it...roll. Anyhow, on to the recipe. I picked up the egg roll wrappers and headed home form my weekly shopping trip. We had not gone produce shopping this week when I said to Savanah, "Let's make egg rolls." And she wanted to know with what. And I told her, "With anything we have in the frig that doe snot need to be thrown into the compost bin (Yeah, we are composting now, but that will be for another post). So rummage through the frig we did.

We came up with cabbage, carrots, onions, some green, and tofu, oh yeah, ginger and garlic. We sauteed them and began wrapping. We heated up our little deep fryer and off we went. Savanah had said that Alton Brown did not saute his veggies before wrapping them, but I am not ready for crispy insides to my egg rolls just yet.

Our saute juice was:
1T sesame oil
2-3 T tamari
1-2 t sweetener

We just poured that over the veggies as they sauteed and Viola, we had dinner. We heated some left over rice and had a salad and we were done. Darn it's good being a vegetarian. Who has time for meat to defrost if you forgot to pull out the meat. Woo Hoo to those of us who need not defrost meat. Sing it with me girls. Oooo Oooo!

I am going to have to give these and your potstickers a try! We need new recipes to try and these sound just like what we love to eat!
