Happy first day of Spring my YumCrumbs. This 3-n-ate recipe was created to pay homage to the season and the Spring Roll. Spring Rolls are definitely one of my favorite things to make and enjoy, and what perfect time to share my 3 recipes than Spring time.  My spring roll 3-n-ate will put a spring on your buds and a pep in your roll… or whatever. I hope you enjoy and cheers to a new season!

 

The Main ingredient these 3-n-ate recipes are spring roll wrappers! Before we begin.. let’s educate ourselves on the differences between spring rolls and egg rolls.

 

SPRING ROLL #1: CORN BEEF & SWISS ROLL

 

INGREDIENTS
  • Raw chopped green cabbage
  • Sliced corn beef
  • Sliced Swiss cheese
  • Spring roll wrappers
  • Grapeseed or frying oil of your choice

The first thing you want to do is prep your spring roll wrapper. It helps to lay them nice and flat, then fold them into the shape of a diamond vs. a square when facing you. Take the point closest to you and layer ingredients out , one on top of the other. You’ll see exactly what I’m referring to in my video down below. I started with the Swiss cheese, followed by corned beef, and then put then cabbage in the middle. In hindsight I think that the corn beef should go first, followed by the cheese and cabbage.  This will ensure the cheese reaches optimal gooeyness.

SPRING ROLL ASSEMBLY

Folding the spring roll tightly is very important and can be a bit tricky. As always though, rely on the guidance of your ancestors and you will be fine!

Fold the tip of the paper that’s closest to you over all of the ingredients first.

Then you’re going to take each side separately and fold it inward. Tuck any excess paper and roll towards the last tip.

After the first swirl dip your finger in water and smooth your damp finger tips across the paper as you roll. This creates a better seal.

Continue to roll, damping the wrapper with water. Do this all the way to the end of the roll.

*If you’re making multiple spring rolls make sure to keep a moist towel over the ones that you’ve already completed.  This will keep your finished rolls from drying out.

Last step is the frying. Pour about ¼ cup of frying oil in your cast iron skillet and fry until roll is golden brown on all sides.

Yum Nugget: My favorite way to serve the Swiss and corn beef spring roll is with Russian or Thousand Island dressing!

 

3-n-ate spring rolls

SPRING ROLL #1: SPRING GREEN ROLL

 

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • 1 block Cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic salt
  • 1 tsp Old bay
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs of Chopped spring onion
  • Spring roll wrappers
  • Grapeseed or frying oil of your choice

 

SPRING ROLL ASSEMBLY

First step is to prep your vegetable. Wash your asparagus and cut them into 2 inch segments making sure to remove the tough ends. You only want the tender tips of the asparagus in your dish. Blanch the asparagus for about 30 seconds in boiling water, quickly taking them out to drain and cool.

Next, take softened cream cheese and mix in all seasonings and chopped spring onions.

When you are ready to fill the roll take about a tablespoon of cream cheese and create a small pit in the center of the cheese. Drop the veggies (about two pieces) into that little space and roll.

Last step is the frying. Pour about ¼ cup of frying oil in your cast iron skillet and fry until roll is golden brown on all sides.

Yum Nugget: For the dipping I like the sweet, spiciness of a sweet chili sauce. It pairs perfectly with the savory and silky cream cheese.

 

3-n-ate Spring Rolls

SPRING ROLL #1: PENNA-BUTTA CRUNCH ROLL

This is by far my favorite 3-n-ate spring roll recipe. Not only is it super simple, but it’s totally delicious.

 

INGREDIENTS
  • Peanut butter chips I used recesses
  • Sliced banana
  • Spring roll wrappers
  • Grapeseed or frying oil of your choice

 

SPRING ROLL ASSEMBLY

Peel a ripe banana (this may be obvious, but you never know). Cut banana into 2 inch sections. Slice those sections down the middle to make them small enough for your wrapper. Place the sliced banana onto your spring roll wrapper and add about a tablespoon of peanut butter chips. Roll and fry.

Yum Nugget: Of course the obvious choice for dipping sauce here will be a beautiful chocolate sauce!!

Serve all these rolls hot! But please be careful and don’t burn yourself please!!
