Servings 22 Spring Rolls


  • Breville Smart Oven Air Fried


  • 1 small red onion diced
  • 8 -10 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger or more to taste
  • 1 can water chestnuts – drained and diced
  • 1 can Bamboo shoots – drained and cut into thin strips
  • 8 ounces Crimini portablella or white button mushrooms – diced
  • 10 ounce bag shredded green cabbage
  • 9 ounce bag shredded green and red cabbage
  • 5 ounces shredded carrots
  • 5 ounces Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch or any shredded greens
  • large bowl filled with warm not hot water
  • 1 bag Brown Rice Spring Roll Wrappers


  • Heat up your skillet and water saute the onion until translucent, add the mushrooms, garlic and ginger, saute for 2-3 more minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. Add a little bit of water if you need to keep it from sticking to the pan. Put the lid on to steam the vegetables just don’t let them get too wet. You want the mixture to be cooked but not soggy. The filling needs to cool down before you try to fill the rice wraps. I put the mixture in the fridge to hurry along that process. Once it is cool then proceed.
  • Dip one rice wrap at a time in the warm water, just dip it in, pull it out and let the excess water drip off. Place the rice wrapper on a clean cutting board, it will continue to soften as it sits there, add a scoop of cooled down filling, fold over the sides of the wrap, then start rolling it up, set aside and start making another.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. For this recipe in the Breville Air Fryer – just use one of the regular racks that comes with the oven – there is less surface area for it to stick to and it seems to work really well. Or you can use the air fryer rack if its is lined with a grill mat see the link above in the post - it helps them from sticking to the air fryer rack. Set the timer for 20 minutes. Don’t try to move the spring rolls or turn them over as they will stick and come apart. At 20 minutes check to make sure they are crispy and remove them using a pair of tongs.
  • When cool enough to eat – enjoy this oil free crunchy treat!
    Sauces: Make my Creamy Balsamic Dressing recipe but make the Asian Version, Use California Balsamic Teriyaki Vinegar or any flavored vinegar of your choice.
    Servings Suggestion: Serve with steamed brown rice and water sautéed vegetables. If you have vegetable filling leftover serve it over brown rice, quinoa or millet.


Note: You don’t have to use exactly the ingredients I used, you can use what ever veggies you have on hand or can find at your grocery store. I have made them multiple times and used slightly different ingredients each time and they turn out wonderful every time. I think a little Chinese Five Spice would be nice in the filling mixture too.
