Vegetable Spring Rolls

August 03, 2016 in Category: What's New

Spring. A versatile word with many meanings. It can refer to a place where water emerges from an underground source, or a coil in a mattress. You can walk with a spring in your step or enjoy springtime weather. Or, a brilliant idea can spring from your mind. For us, this brilliant idea that sprung forth resulted in Trader Joe’s Vegetable Spring Rolls.

Named after the Spring Festival in China, where spring rolls are served, these are no ordinary Spring Rolls. While we’ve kept many of the elements found in traditional spring rolls, like cabbage, onion, and carrots, we’ve also cooked up some delightful updates. Kale, shredded tofu, and edamame add fresh and vibrant flavors to our rolls.

All of these ingredients, along with mushrooms, ginger, and garlic, are put through a centrifuge to remove excess moisture and provide a crispier final product. Then this filling is rolled into a thin pastry wrapper and fried before frozen. Prepare according to the package directions and you’ll have perfectly crispy, tasty Spring Rolls—as if they were never frozen!

The best part about our Vegetable Spring Rolls (besides their tastiness, of course)...? You can eat them year round! Cut rolls in half and serve at a cocktail party with Sweet Chili Sauce. Or, include alongside Mandarin Orange Chicken and Organic Jasmine Rice for a quick and tasty meal.

Head to your local Trader Joe’s and spring for some Vegetable Spring Rolls. Priced at $3.99 for a nine ounce box, you might even want to spring for two.
