I came across this recipe on the wonderful world of Pinterest. What caught my eye? The words “Baked” and “Southwestern.” Here in our house, we LOVE all flavors Southwestern. If it calls for Cumin or Chili Powder? We’re in.
But “baked” is what got me the most. Who doesn’t love Egg Rolls? But let’s face it: they are deep fried pieces of fatty goodness. TOTALLY not part of a healthy diet. I had NO idea that:
1) you could buy egg roll wrappers at the grocery store
2) that the actual egg roll wrappers were not bad for you – it is the frying that makes them unhealthy.
3) you can bake egg rolls instead of frying!
Reading this recipe was quite the learning experience for me.
Also? The recipe is meatless. So you can serve them up to your vegetarian friends. But as one who eats meat, you’d never miss it!
The recipe comes from the inspiring food blog, Annie’s Eats.
