Vegetable Spring Rolls. Browse more recipes from China at the Food of the World Link Party.
I was really excited when Diane announced China for this month’s Food of the World party. It is one cuisine I know my family generally enjoys, and I have a cookbook full of genuine Chinese recipes. 
You may recall if you’ve been around for a few years, that I had the opportunity to review Feeding The Dragon by Mary Kate and Nate Tate. This brother and sister team took a trip to China and decided to travel the whole country photographing the local, food, and learning traditional ways and recipes to cook the food. It is such a wonderful book if you want to learn more about Chinese culture and food. 

Shortly after reading the book, and browsing the recipes, I tried my hand at some Sesame Chicken Lettuce Wraps that turned out delicious. I mostly use the recipes and dialogue in this book as a base line, and then substitute with what I have on hand, or what my family prefers (less spice usually). 
For today’s link party I wanted to make something more traditional for the Chinese New Year Spring Festival – which by the way is apparently in full swing according to my cousin who just traveled through Singapore and caught a kickoff celebration. I digress…so I was trying to find something that the Chinese eat on their New Years, and although I came across a lot of different lists, nothing was sounding too good. I headed back to my cookbook, and decided to make Chicken Spring Rolls. While reading through Mary Kate and Nate’s travelogue, I was pleasantly surprised to find Spring Rolls are traditionally eaten during this festival. YAY! It makes sense once you connect the names “Spring Roll” and “Spring Festival”.  
I altered the recipe from the book to be a Vegetable Spring Roll, but I used the same methods to cook the filling, and also included similar flavor combinations. I hope you enjoy.  Oh and FYI – I did it again, I chose something that needed to be fried. My mind kept telling me to stop, pick something different, but I pushed forward despite my past failures.

  1. I'm very impressed by your spring rolls the outside of the roll looks just a little crisp and the inside stuffing looks so delicious. So glad you are enjoying Food of the World.

    1. Thanks. They definitely could have been fried a bit longer..not as crispy as I would have liked. The filling was so perfect though. I know I could have made it fresh, but those bags of coleslaw mix were kind of my inspiration – and so easy too!

  2. Hi Adelina,
