5 ml soy sauce

2 green onions, finely chopped

125 mL shredded chinese cabbage

125 mL grated carrots

1. Heat oil in medium heat on a frying pan. Cook onion,  ginger, and soy sauce for 5 min or until onion is translucent. Stir- cook for 2 minutes. Stir in mushrooms. Heat through, and season taste with salt and pepper.

2. Lay spring roll wrappers out on a clean surface, with one point of each wrapper facing you. Divide filling to 6 equal portions. Place 1 portion just about the bottom point on each wrapper. Fold inside, point overlapping. Slightly brush top at the point facing you. Roll up, pressing to seal. Place on lightly oiled plate.

Huanese Dipping Sauce

1. In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, water, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, ginger root and chili paste. Stir in green onions and cilantro.


My Opinion of the Lab:

This lab was not bad. The spring rolls browned quicker than I thought, and the we needed a little more salt in the filling. Other than that, the recipe was pretty good, and I would make it again.

To make this recipe cheaper, I could just use soy sauce for the sauce, and just use the ingredients that I have on hand.
