Crispy and flavorful Vegan Southwest “Egg” Rolls by itsallgoodvegan 😋 packed with corn, black beans, tofu, chopped red pepper and taco seasoning. These egg rolls are baked and not fried making them healthier than your typical fried egg rolls. Dip these in sour cream, guacamole, or salsa for the ultimate appetizer or snack!
½ block of pressed tofu cut into small pieces, about 7 ounces of tofu.
3 Tbsp oil, I used avocado
½ red pepper, chopped into small pieces
1 cup corn, I used canned
1 cup black beans, I used canned
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
18 “egg” roll wraps, I used Vegan Egg Roll Wraps
3 Tbsp filtered water, this is for the “glue” for the wraps
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). Line a large pan with parchment paper or spray with oil and set aside.
Heat a medium pot on medium heat. Once hot add one tablespoon of oil, tofu, red pepper and fry for 5-6 minutes or until the pepper is slightly soft.
Add the corn, beans, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper to the pan. Mix and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and set aside.
Lay your egg roll wrapper down in a diamond shape with a corner facing you. Add about 2 tablespoons of the fiesta filling horizontally in the middle of the wrap.
Fold the bottom of the wrap up tightly tucking the fiesta filling in. Fold the two opposite corners toward the middle of the wrap forming an envelope shape. You can use a dab of the “glue” water to seal the sides of the wrapper.
Place a little “glue” water at the top corner of the wrapper and roll tightly. Lay egg roll fold facing down on a baking pan. Repeat steps until you have wrapped all of your egg rolls.
Brush the tops of your egg rolls with coconut oil and bake for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Dip in salsa and guacamole and eat immediately. Leftovers will last for 2 days wrapped up in the refrigerator.
