Servings: 10 egg rolls
Author: The Modern Nonna
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, any oil works
  • 1 small finely diced yellow onion
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • ½ pack of coleslaw mix, 200-250 grams
  • dash of soy sauce to taste, tamari or coconut aminos work as well
  • 2 teaspoons hot honey, or regular honey
  • pinch of salt if needed
  • 10 egg roll wraps
  • avocado oil spray

The Dipping Sauce:

  • I mixed 1/4 cup maple syrup, with soy sauce, and a touch of sriracha to taste. You can use any sauce you enjoy such as plum sauce or sweet and sour sauce.

Instructions 

  • To a pan on the stove, add the olive oil and sauté the garlic and onions until translucent.
  • Add the coleslaw mix, soy sauce, and hot honey. Give it a stir for about a minute but don't cook it for too long as we want a bite to the veggies. You can add a tiny pinch of salt if the veggies are lacking salt.
  • Be sure to taste and adjust the soy sauce as it can be salty. You can also use coconut aminos or tamari. Take the veggies off the heat.
  • Take out the egg-roll wrappers and place a wrapper on a plate. Add a heaping tablespoon of the filling to the middle. Fold the right and left side of the wrapper over the filling. Now take the opposite side of the wrapper, which is facing you, and roll it forward making sure to keep that filling tight. Roll it all the way to the end.
  • Do this exact step with the remaining egg wrappers until the filling is all done. There are other ways of rolling egg rolls so feel free to use any you feel comfortable with.
  • Spray each roll with avocado oil spray and place it in the air-fryer. Cook at 400F for 8 minutes flipping halfway through. Keep an eye on them as some air-fryer can take less/more time.
  • In a bowl mix 1/4 cup maple syrup with soy sauce and sriracha to taste. Enjoy!

Notes

You can fill the egg rolls with any veggies you enjoy. You can also add veggies such as mushrooms to the mix as well. 
You can use the broccoli slaw mix which is my favourite or any you like. 
If you don’t have an air-fryer you can shallow-fry them in a pan with oil until golden on each side. 
I have not tried baking these yet so let me know if you try. If I was to bake these I would pre-heat the oven to 425F. Take a baking sheet and place a wire rack on top of it. Spray the rolls or brush them on each side with a small amount of oil and bake them for 10 minutes on each side or until golden.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
