Cuisine: Filipino
Serves: 50
Ingredients
  • 1 large carrot (washed, peeled and julienned)
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 large potato (washed, peeled and julienned)
  • ¾ cup bean sprouts (if you have them on hand)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • oil for cooking
  • 1 package Filipino Spring Roll Pastry (or wonton wrappers if you don't have spring roll pastry)
  • water (to seal warppers)
Instructions
  1. Wash, peel and slice veggies.
  2. Heat large wok and add a bit of oil for cooking. Cook vegetables until tender crisp. Make sure potato is cooked, but do not cook until too soft, otherwise it will get mushy. If using bean sprouts, add them last, because they cook quickly.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Separate wrappers (in this case, we used wonton wrappers to make bite-sized spring rolls). Keep wrappers under a damp tea towel or cloth to prevent from drying.
  5. Remove cooked vegetable mixture from wok and put in a bowl.
  6. Lay one wrapper flat on your work surface. Add a bit of vegetable filling (because the wonton wrappers are small, I was only able to put 1 piece of each vegetable). If making full-sized spring rolls with the spring roll pastry, you can put 3 tablespoons of filling or more).
  7. Fold in the bottom and top ends of the wrapper. Bring one long end over the filling and wrap the roll. With the tip of your finger, dip into water and seal the end of the wrapper.
  8. Repeat with each wrapper until you have finished wrapping all the spring rolls. You may have a bit left over filling. My husband used the little bit of leftover filling in a noodle dish for his lunch.
  9. In your wok, add enough oil to fry the spring roll bites. Cook until golden brown. You will have to cook in batches since you don't want to overcrowd the wok.
  10. Set cooked spring rolls on a dish with paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Serve hot and enjoy! Serve with Filipino dipping sauce (or any dipping sauce you like).
