Baked avocado egg rolls are the healthy appetizer you need in your life.
Recipe for avocado egg rolls:
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 1 1/2 ripe avocados, diced
- 2 tablespoons red onions, diced
- 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomatoes, diced
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
- 1 egg
- 4 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
- Olive oil spray
For the cashew dipping sauce:
- 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, divided
- 2 tablespoons low sugar rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves
- Pinch of salt
- 1″ ginger, peeled and grated
To make avocado egg rolls: Add lime juice to a medium sized bowl. Add diced avocado and stir gently until avocado is covered in lime juice to prevent from browning. Add in red onion, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, salt, and cilantro to the bowl and stir until well combined. Set aside.
Add egg to a small bowl and whisk until scrambled. Set aside.
On a dry, clean surface, set out 4 sheets of room temperature phyllo dough and cut into quarters. Leave 1 set of phyllo dough in the center of your cutting board. Add approximately 1/3 of the avocado mixture to the dough a little right of the center. Wrap the dough like you would an egg roll and use the egg wash with a brush to seal the dough together. Keep going until you have a tightly wrapped log. Use the egg wash to fold the open ends of the egg roll together, like you’re wrapping a package. Fold two sides in and then fold the top and bottom triangles down. Repeat two more times with the remaining avocado mixture.
Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat and spray each egg roll all over with olive oil spray. Add egg rolls to pan and cool for 3 minutes on all 4 sides until golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
To make cashew dipping sauce: Add cashews to 1/4 cup of water and set aside to hydrate for at least 30 minutes.
Once soaked, strain cashews and add to a food processor. Add rice wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons of water, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, salt, and ginger. Pulse until smooth.
Slice egg rolls in half diagonally and serve with dipping sauce.
