Ingredients

  • 6 frozen spring roll pastry sheets
  • Splash of vegetable oil, plus extra for deep frying
  • 300g bag of prepared fresh stir-fry vegetables
  • 150g firm tofu, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce, plus extra for dipping

To serve

  • 2-3 spring onions, shredded
  • Squeeze of lime juice

Method

  1. Defrost the pastry sheets. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over a high heat, then add a the stir-fry vegetables and tofu. Fry for 4-5 minutes until the veg have just softened and the tofu is a little golden, then remove from the heat and stir in the sweet chilli sauce until lightly coated. Cool.
  2. Working 1 defrosted spring roll sheet at a time, cut each pastry square in half to make 2 rectangles. Brush the pastry edges with cold water, then put a heaped tbsp of fried veg mix about 2.5cm from the long edge of the rectangle. Roll up tightly to halfway, fold in the ends, then roll the rest of the way. Brush the seams with extra water to seal, then repeat with the rest of the sheets and filling.
  3. Heat 2cm veg oil in a deep frying pan, then fry the spring rolls for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Allow to cool slightly, then serve topped with the shredded spring onion and lime juice, with sweet chilli sauce for dipping.
