This week I decided that I had to try my hand at eggrolls. It was so much easier than I had imagined.
Farm Fresh Eggrolls by: Me
1 Pack Eggroll Skins
1 Lrg purple onion 1/4’d and very thinly sliced
2 Carrots shredded
1 head broccoli finely chopped
1/4 head purple cabbage finely sliced or shredded
1/2# Oyster or Shiitake Mushroms rough chopped
1 pack glass noodles cooked and chopped
2 tbsp Coconut Aminos
2 tbsp Sesame oil
1 tbsp Fish sauce (optional but flavorful)
Several heavy shakes of Furrikake
Preheat frying oil at med heat
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir well.
Put 1 eggroll skin in front of you aligned like a diamond
Place about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a wrapper,
Start to roll it up, tucking the side corners in toward the middle as you go
and lightly dampen the last corner just before you finish rolling it, to seal the end.
After you have rolled them allow them to dry for a few minutes to avoid getting water in the hot oil
Place one or two rolls at a time and fry for a minute max
you’ll know the inside is hot when the oil begins to crackle loudly
that’s the juices getting pushed out of the eggroll
Get those babies out of the oil and onto a plate with a paper towel
let them rest for a couple of minutes, then enjoy
We dipped ours in a mix of coconut aminos and sesame oil

How to clean produce
To clean your produce, a few drops of natural dish soap in a sink of water will be enough to wash off anything lurking on your food. Thick-skinned produce can soak a few minutes, leafy greens just need a dip and swish, and thin-skinned produce can be dipped and wiped or soaked quickly. Rinse everything well. Vinegar can turn leafy greens black if it’s used as a veggie wash in too high a concentration, and it might not kill viruses. Soap-based cleaning products will strip the virus of its outer coating and kill it.
