It can be hard getting your kids to eat their recommended daily intake of vegetables. I’m always looking for ways to pack veggies into foods that my kids will eat and finding new and creative ways to offer vegetables to my little ones.
That’s how these Veggie-Eggy Rolls were born. Tasty, healthy, and portable, these Eggy Rolls are sure to please. They fit perfectly into the Bentgo Kids Lunch Box and contain about 3 servings of vegetables in one roll!
Egg roll wrappers are a great way to contain veggies and make them kid friendly. For the filling, I used a bag of frozen riced cauliflower and broccoli. You can easily make riced veggies at home by pulsing them in a food processor but I’ve fallen in love with the ease of having bags of riced vegetables in my freezer. The bags save on time and kitchen mess!
Once your filling is mixed, it’s time to get wrapping. Set up your egg rolling station on a clean, dry surface with your bowl of filling and a small cup of water nearby.
Here’s a guide for wrapping these Veggie-Eggy Rolls. Each wrap comfortably holds about ¼ cup of filling without risk of being over or under stuffed. Use a fork to gently shape the filling diagonally onto the wrapper and fold. To seal the roll, dip your fingers into the water and moisten anywhere where the wrapper folds over.
Once your rolls are wrapped and ready to bake, place them on a sheet pan and lightly spray with cooking spray to ensure a crispy wrapper.
These Eggy-Rolls are so versatile and, once you are comfortable with them, the possibilities are endless for a variety of fillings.
