Ingredients

Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 Tbsp Avocado oil
  • 1 splash vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger – Grated
  • In a small bowl mix minced garlic, Grated ginger, splash of fish sauce, 2 TBSP avocado oil, 2 TBSP of low sodium soy sauce. Combine and let sit.

Spring Rolls

  • 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 6 wrapper Egg Roll Wrappers
  • Shaved cabbage – I use Red but Green will also work
  • Medium yellow onion – diced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • Shoestring carrots

Hers is how to make this Spring Roll Recipe

  1. Heat pan to medium heat. Add Turkey to pan with a little avocado oil. Cook until half brown.
  2. While this is cooking down, Shred or fine slice the carrot and cabbage
  3. Add the onion and half of the sauce mixture to the pan with the turkey and cook until the onion is soft, about 10 minutes. You want that sauce to hit everything in the pan so mix it well.
  4. Drain any excess liquid from the pan and transfer the turkey mixture to a large bowl. Let it cool slightly.
  5. Lay out the spring roll wrappers on a clean surface and spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling on the bottom corner of each wrapper. Fold the bottom corner over the filling, then fold in the sides and roll up tightly. Seal the edges with water. They should look something similar to this:

Air Frying

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 360°F and spray the basket with cooking spray. I use a paper towel or brush to coat the tray with avocado oil. Place the spring rolls in a single layer in the basket, leaving some space between them. Spray them with cooking oil or brush them with egg yolk.
  2. Air fry for 12 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden and crisp. Cook for about 6 minutes at 380 degrees and flip them about halfway through to make sure all side get browned the same.
  3. Serve the spring rolls after about 5 minutes for cooling with the remaining sauce for dipping.

Recommendations

  • To make the sauce, you can use a blender or a food processor to combine the garlic, ginger, fish sauce, avocado oil, soy sauce, and vinegar. You can also add some chili flakes or sriracha for some heat, if you like. You can adjust the amount of each ingredient to suit your taste. If you can mince the garlic I would say mixing it in a bowl with a fork will save you from washing the blender.
  • To shred the cabbage and carrot, you can use a mandolin, a box grater, or a knife. You want to cut them into thin strips, about the same size as the ground turkey. You can also buy pre-shredded cabbage and carrot from the store to save time.
  • Air Frying Recipes are healthier than normal frying because it uses less oil and fewer calories.
  • To wrap the spring rolls, you can use the burrito method, the envelope method, or the triangle method. I found some web results that show you how to fold spring rolls using different methods. You can check them out here:
