Veggie Spring Rolls

My family loves stir fry, crab Rangoon, egg rolls, you name it.  Making veggie spring rolls seemed a logical next step (because in all honesty I’m a bit intimidated thinking of rolling my own sushi).

Often I make these during summertime so I don’t have to turn on the oven or my crockpot.  A light, crunchy, flavorful roll that can be an appetizer or a main meal!

The wraps can rip easily, so be gentle and careful! You could also add various ingredients to this mixture such as shrimp or pork. I don't often measure this recipe out, just filling a bowl with a ton of all the ingredients, tasting it to make sure I have the right flavor. Then I end up with 12-15 or so wraps!
