I don’t know what it is about eggrolls, but I can’t turn them down. Anytime we order Asian food, I’ve got to get my eggrolls. If I’m making an Asian inspired meal for dinner one night during the week, I make eggrolls as the side dish. I’ll even just buy a box of my favorite frozen brand & eat that for lunch sometimes!
This past weekend I was really in the mood for eggrolls so I decided to make up a batch of my favorite baked vegetable eggrolls to snack on. As they were baking I realized I didn’t have any sauce to dip them in & you can’t not have sauce for your eggrolls! So I started searching through my pantry & thinking about what I could whip up as a dipping sauce in under 12 minutes while the eggrolls were baking.
Then I saw it, It called out to me really. My bottle of CHA! by Texas Pete. Have y’all heard of it yet? It’s a new sriracha sauce from the makers of the Texas Pete Hot Sauces, which has been a staple on Southern tables for ever! The CHA! by Texas Pete sauce has the perfect blend of spicy sweetness that makes it perfect to use in recipes not just as a condiment. And I knew it would be a perfect flavor for a quick dipping sauce to go with my eggrolls!
- for the dipping sauce: combine all ingredients in a small bowl, stir to combine. Cover & refrigerate until ready to use.
- for the eggrolls: In a large skillet, combine the onion, carrot, sweet peppers, minced garlic & olive oil. Season with salt. Turn the heat on to medium & lightly stir-fry the vegetables until crisp-tender, about 8-10 minutes. Add in the spinach & corn and cook for a minute or two longer, letting the spinach start to wilt. Finally add in the remaining ingredients (soy sauce – ginger) & let cook for just a minute or two more. Remove from heat.
- Lay an eggroll wrapper out on a diagonal on a clean work surface & follow the instructions for your wrappers to fill & bake (or fry) the eggrolls. Add the filling to the center of the eggroll & roll the wrapper from the bottom up over the filling. Then fold in the two sides & the gently fold the wrapper over, sealing it. Place the rolled eggroll on a lighly greased baking sheet & repeat until all of your filling is used up – mine made about 5 eggrolls. Lightly brush a small amount of EVOO across the top of the eggrolls & then bake according to package directions – mine took about 12 minutes.
- Remove from the oven & serve immediately with the Spicy Sriracha Dipping Sauce.
