Have you tried those yummy yet very greasy avocado egg rolls at your favorite happy hour lately? We often order the Avocado Egg Rolls at Kona Grill and I absolutely love them. But, they’re fried and probably not plant based. My version is crispy and crunchy and made without any oil!
I’ve had a lot of success making other versions of air fryer spring rolls, as you will find in one of my previous posts. I thought it was time to play around in my kitchen and make a copycat version. Here’s my healthy take on this restaurant snack without the added oil. These are also completely plant based and vegan.
Avocado Air Fryer Spring Rolls
- One package of Nasoya Vegan Egg Roll Wrappers
- 1/2 package of broccoli slaw
- 2 Avocados, sliced
- 1 cup red onion, diced
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 1 package of sun dried tomatoes (not oil packed) You will use about a cup
- Sweet Chili garlic sauce
- salt and pepper
- Low sodium vegetable broth (for sauteeing the broccoli slaw)
In a medium skillet, heat about 1/4 cup of vegetable broth and then add the broccoli slaw and saute until softened. Add salt and pepper to taste and then set the slaw aside. On a flat work surface ( I like to use these), lay out one egg roll wrapper with the point facing towards you. Start with a slice of avocado, and then add a little bit of each ingredient to the center of the wrapper. Try not to overstuff—it takes a little trial and error! Take the bottom corner and fold over to cover the filling. With a small pastry brush, moisten the reamining edges with a little water and then fold in the sides and gently roll away from you. Once all of your spring rolls are finished, you are ready to air fry!
Set your air fryer to 370 degrees. I placed 4 rolls in the basket at a time and cooked for 4 minutes and then turned and continued for 4-6 minutes. Everyone’s air fryer works differently, so I recommend checking every couple minutes. You want a nice browned and crispy shell for that awesome crunch!
Serve with the sweet chili garlic sauce or whatever sauce you like!
I am often asked what brand of air fryer I use. I have a Krups air fryer that I purchased last year. It has served me well this past year, but I think I’m ready for an upgrade. I’ve been researching some of the newer versions and I am interested in the new Ninja Foodie Air Fryer . So, perhaps i can snag a new one on Black Friday this year!
This recipe makes 12 spring rolls and they can easily be reheated the next day in your air fryer or in the oven. They make a fantastic appetizer or even a side dish. It’s a great way to get a serving of veggies (broccoli slaw) as well as a healthy dose of fat with the avocado. When you serve these to your friends and family, be prepared for rave reviews. They are always a hit at my house, and I want you to give them a try.
Tag me in your photo on Instagram or send me a comment after you make these. I know you’re going to be a fan!
See you in the kitchen soon!
