Southwestern egg roll cooking notes

To begin you will need to make a filling for your egg rolls. This takes no more than five minutes and you can customize as you like. I always start with an equal mix of rinsed and drained sweet corn and black beans. From there I usually always add a little pico de gallo and after that a spritz of lime juice, cumin, coriander and smoked paprika.

These are vegan friendly as standard but you can also sprinkle a little cheese at this stage too if you like. From there, you can build your egg rolls as follows:

Some people like to tamp down and seal with egg wash, I simply dab my finger with a little water and seal around the final edge of the egg roll before completing the last wrap. That works well enough to seal the package up for me.
