Skinny Baked Vegetarian Egg Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Print Friendly

vegetarian eggrolls
You normally wouldn’t think egg rolls would be healthy but these actually are! They’re loaded with good-for-you broccoli slaw, cabbage and other veggies. Plus they’re baked, not fried and served with a peanut butter dipping sauce, oh boy! Each filling egg roll has 117 calories 3 grams fat and 3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints. They make a wonderful appetizer, lunch or dinner. I love these so much, I could eat them all time. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook, Chill and Bake Time: 1 hour

Ingredients for Egg Rolls:

2½ cups shredded cabbage

2½ cups broccoli slaw

1 cup snow peas (pea pods) chopped

1 cup carrots, shredded

1 cup scallions, chopped

1 teaspoon vegetable oil or olive oil

2 teaspoons ginger, (from a jar) see shopping tips

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons rice vinegar or seasoned rice vinegar

1½ tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

A little fresh ground black pepper

12 egg roll wrappers, see shopping tips

Cooking spray

Ingredients for Sauce:

¼ cup peanut butter, I like natural, chunky, unsalted

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking pan with cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, combine cabbage, broccoli slaw, snow peas, carrots, and scallions.

3. Heat oil in a large, nonstick pan over medium-high. Add ginger, garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in cabbage mixture, 1½ tablespoons soy sauce, rice vinegar and black pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until soft-crisp. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

4. Place 1 egg roll wrapper at a time onto work surface with 1 corner pointing toward you (wrapper should look like a diamond). Spoon ⅓ cup cabbage filling into center of wrapper. Fold lower corner of egg roll wrapper over filling. Fold in corners and roll up jelly roll fashion. Repeat steps with remaining wrappers and veggie filling. Lightly coat egg rolls with cooking spray and place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn over and bake 10 minutes more until golden brown on both sides.

5. To prepare sauce: In a blender add all sauce ingredients and blend until smooth. Taste and add more red pepper flakes, if desired.  Serve sauce on the side with egg rolls. Use ½ tablespoon sauce to dip with each egg roll.

6. Serve at once. To reheat, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place egg rolls on a baking sheet. Place in oven and heat until crisp.

Makes 12 egg rolls (each serving, 1 roll and about ½ tablespoon sauce)

Food Fact

Egg roll wrappers are paper-thin, sheets of raw pastry dough and are traditionally used to make egg rolls and spring rolls. They’re filled with meats and vegetables, rolling into a cylindrical shape and deep fried, although my skinny ones are baked.

Shopping Tips

I used Nasoya Egg Roll Wrappers. I bought mine at Vons/Safeway but most supermarkets and natural food markets sell egg roll wrappers. They’re usually displayed in the refrigerated Asian section or deli aisle. Click here to see where Nasoya Egg Roll Wrappers are sold- There are other brands available.

Ginger, in a jar, can be found in the produce section where garlic, in a jar, is sold.

    I love your post and photos!

  22. Hannah Says:

    I was wondering if these can be frozen? I’m a college student cooking for myself so any meal I can freeze and cook when I need them is super helpful! These look wonderful!

  23. admin Says:

    I think they would freeze great Hannah. You might want to put them in individual containers, with a little dipping sauce, before freezing.
    Best of luck to you in school!

  24. Chelsea Says:

    These sound delicious! I would probably dip them in homemade sweet and sour because I’m allergic to peanuts, but I would love to try these egg rolls!

  25. admin Says:

    You could easily do that Chelsea. Enjoy!

  26. Kim Says:

    I’ve made these before and they’re delicious! Out of curiosity, I put them through the recipe builder and added a pound of chicken breast and reduced the veggies just a little (to accommodate for the volume of the chicken) and did the sauce using PB2 – guess what? STILL only 3PP each. Guess what we’re having for dinner tonight?? Love your website and your wonderful ideas – thanks so much!

  27. admin Says:

    Thanks for sharing Kim. I’m so happy you’re enjoying my recipes!
    Enjoy your dinner!

  34. peter @feedyoursoultoo Says:

    love how you lighten up the classics.

  35. Caren Gittleman Says:

    my younger brother first turned me on to these about 2 yrs ago. I have made them with a filling like yours and then I also played around and made my own. I also used the same soy wrappers that you did. Be careful!! They are DELICIOUS, addicting and when that happens they are no longer “skinny!” I had to lay off of them because they are THAT good!

  36. admin Says:

    I know what you mean Caren. That’s why I usually shared them with company!
    I always appreciate you feedback.
    My best,

  37. Catherine Says:

    Dear Nancy, I love that these eggrolls are baked. I must try baking them next time…I also love the sound of that sauce! xo

  38. Sue Says:

    What is broccoli slaw? This looks great!

  39. admin Says:

    Thanks Sue! Broccoli slaw is a variation of traditional coleslaw with shredded raw broccoli stalks substituted for cabbage. Most supermarkets sell bags of it like shredded cabbage.

  40. Food Porn Friday: Finger Foods For The Win! | Fit & Fancy Says:

    […] Skinny Baked Vegetarian Egg Rolls with Peanut Sauce My boyfriend loves these. It’s hard to tell if he loves the fact that he gets egg rolls without having to go pick them up from a restaurant or if it’s because he gets an excuse to eat more peanut butter. Regardless, it’s a hit in my house. This is the most complicated recipe today, but worth it. The egg rolls are deceivingly filling and you will more than likely have left-overs for a few days. You’re welcome. Catch the recipe here. […]
