A cheeky little way of making a super low-fat spring roll!
I was very dubious when I saw the ‘lasagne sheet’ method of making spring rolls, but I tried it, and they were good! For one thing because I always have lasagne sheets in the cupboard and some odd veg knocking around so don’t have to do a special shop for the ingredients, and for another they are a great accompaniment to a home-cooked Chinese meal without adding anything deep fried.
I’ve written down the vegetables that I used- but this is completely flexible, just use what you have!
Just a note re. these and Slimming World- You may be aware of what Slimming World class as ‘tweaks’-there is a very informative post about this here, on Fopperholic’s blog. These spring rolls are not considered a tweak if you are eating them as part of a balanced main meal, however if you make a load and snack on them constantly this may affect your weightloss, so just exercise good sense when it comes to these!
- 4 dried lasagne sheets
- 1 carrot chopped into fine matchsticks
- 1/2 courgette cut into fine matchsticks
- 2 spring onions trimmed and cut into fine strips
- 1/2 red pepper cut into thin strips
- small handful mushrooms cut small
- 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
- 1/2 tsp soy saice
- 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes optional
- low calorie cooking spray
- Heat oven to 180c. Pre-cook the lasagne sheets, 1 at a time in a large pan of boiling water. They should take about 5 mins each, but they need to be thoroughly cooked through for the magic to work!
- Heat a wok and spray with low calorie cooking spray, add in all the veg apart from the beansprouts
- Stir fry for about 3 minutes
- Stir in the Chinese 5 spice, soy sauce and beansprouts, remove from heat
- Cut each lasagne sheet in half widthways. Place a line of veg mix along the middle and roll up carefully.
- On a baking tray pre-sprayed with low calorie cooking spray, lay each spring roll seam-side down, and spray all over with more cooking spray.
- Bake for approx 10 minutes at 180c. They may need a little longer, they are ready when the outside is crisp, brown and bubbly!
