Spring Rolls minus the calories if you bake them :) .

mmmmmm... I know you are drooling :)

get your knife and chopping board ready.You are in for a nice arm workout :)
Thinly slice bell peppers,carrots,cabbage,celery and zucchini. Add steamed peas and corn. Just eye ball the quantity ...I don't measure,I add a lot of cabbage and zucchini,you can add any other vegetables you like.I think I'd add alfalfa sprouts next time,mmmm
Add Salt,black pepper and white pepper. about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and lots of hot sauce ;)

I also LOVE to add a little bit of shredded chicken,mmmm.It makes my spring roll a bit more filling and hearty.You can either cook little pieces of chicken with salt,pepper,hot sauce,white pepper and soy sauce OR you can get some grilled chicken and chop it into tiny pieces and add that to the vegetables.
Toss everything together.I have noticed an amazing flavor if I leave this mixture in the refrigerator overnight.ah! perfection.
Now comes the fun part.Get a pastry brush.Break an egg in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon of water,beat well.
Brush the sides of the spring roll sheet with the egg mixture.
Add about 1 tablespoon of the veggie/chicken mixture on your pastry sheet.
fold the sides on the filling.
start rolling the sheet towards the opposite end.
keep going... brush the edges with the egg mixture so it will seal well.
All rolled up and ready.
more the merrier.
You can fry these guys on a skillet with a few tablespoons of canola oil.They are delicious.
DIRTY BIT:
Set these guys on a cookie sheet,spray them well with PAM.Bake them in a preheated oven at 400'F for about 10 minutes at the middle rack.Depending on the size of your oven you might wanna have to broil them for about 6 minutes, it makes them really crispy and crunchy.
Enjoy!
