Spring rolls make a delicious crispy addition to any asian feast. Packed full of flavour and easy to customise to your personal taste.

We like these spring rolls as a vegetarian treat however you can add meat if that is more to your taste.

173g shredded white cabbage

1 shredded carrot

2 garlic cloves

1 large chestnut mushroom finely chopped

80g bean sprouts

Umami salt

1 small teaspoon cornflour

2 tsp soy sauce/ tamari

1 tbsp oyster sauce

3g ginger

8 spring rolls wrappers

Vegetable oil


  1. Heat a glug of vegetable oil in a pan, when hot add the white cabbage, shredded carrot, garlic and ginger and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Then add the finely chopped mushrooms and bean sprouts and cook for a further minute.
  3. Once all the vegetables have softened slightly add the umami salt, soy sauce, and oyster sauce then mix through.
  4. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool in the fridge for around an hour.
  5. In a small bowl mix the corn flour with a splash of water to use as a binding agent.
  6. Once the mixture has cooled, lay out a spring roll wrapper on a board and spoon some of the vegatable mixture into the lower third of the circular wrapper.
  7. Fold the bottom end over the vegetable mixture and then fold over the sides before continuing to roll up into a cigar shape. At the top end brush on some of the corn flour mixture to slick the roll together. Repeat the process for the remaining wrappers.
  8. Once all of the rolls have been made, fill a deep sauce pan with enough vegetable oil so as to cover a spring roll.
  9. Heat the oil before dropping in the spring rolls into the oil to cook. Turning occasionally. Once brown and crispy on the outside remove from the pan with a metal slotted spoon and place onto a plate lined with absorbent paper to soak up the excess oil before serving.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve along with a good glug of sweet chilli sauce as a starter or side dish to accompany any oriental main course.
