11 Days of Super Bowl Recipes: Jackfruit Egg Rolls

After the success of my Jackfruit Tacos, I knew I wanted to try something else!!

And I was thinking of fun vegan Super Bowl options to help keep all your guests happy! 😉

Jackfruit Egg Rolls just seemed like a fun idea I hadn’t seen before! Now, never mind the fact I had never made egg rolls before.

Wasn’t going to stop me from trying!! 😜

What You’ll Need:

1 can Jackfruit

Egg Roll Wrappers

1 c. Green Cabbage, chopped

1 c. Shredded Carrots

½ c. Celery, thinly sliced

1 c. Broccoli, finely cut

Sesame Seeds

1 TB. Water

2 TB. Flour

Pink Himalayan Salt, to taste

Oil for frying

After prepping cabbage, carrots & celery, sprinkle with pink Himalayan salt & place each [separately] in between paper towels to absorb as much excess water as possible.

In a medium pan, cook jackfruit & broccoli on stove top first. Start with jackfruit until it’s broken up & then add the broccoli.

Mix water & flour in small bowl, to seal wrappers. You could also use egg wash if you’re not worried about them being vegan/vegetarian.

In a large, deep skillet, add a quart of oil. Heat over medium-low heat until it reaches 375°.

After laying down a single wrapper on a clean, flat surface, fill it with all the good stuff! 🤣 I added cabbage on the bottom, then carrots & celery. The broccoli & jackfruit was last, followed by some sesame seeds!

You’ll want to eye ball it, but about 1/4 – 1/3 cup worth of filling.

Brush a little of the flour paste on the edges of the wrapper to help seal the egg roll once you roll.

To roll, take the bottom corner & foldup over the filling. Then fold the sides inward towards the center & continue to roll up.

Repeat until you’ve made them all.

Carefully place 2-3 egg rolls at a time into the hot oil. Fry them for 2-3 minutes, turning with tongs as you go, so they evenly cook on all sides. They are done when they are golden brown.

Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate.

For a healthier, non-frying option, especially as you host family & friends, try baking instead:

Place seam side down on parchment-lined baking sheet.

Brush with oil.

Bake @ 375° for 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp. About halfway through, rotate egg rolls to make sure they brown evenly.

And, if you have an air fryer, please leave a comment on how we could cook them in one of those! 🙌🏽🙌🏽

I love them with Trader Joe’s Sweet Chili Sauce. 😋😋😋
