Mini Fried Vegetarian Eggrolls (Cha Gio Chay in Vietnamese) Recipe

Eggrolls (Chà‰ giò in Vietnamese) are a staple in Vietnamese cuisine. Despite its name, eggrolls contains no egg. They're filled with taro root, carrot, dried mushroom and rice vermicelli noodles. They also usually contain tofu or a meat product. This version is fried but there's also spring rolls that are not fried, I'll make those and post them some time soon.

This recipe is for my version of vegetarian eggrolls. They are very convenient when you're serving a large crowd. Eggrolls are the perfect party food. You can make them large and serve them with the main course, or make them smaller and serve them as appetizers. All you need is a good fillling and a ton of little helpers to wrap the crispy delicious cigar shaped snacks. Some of my earliest culinary memories are of my mom making me wrap a bunch of eggrolls before a party.

It took all of us about half an hour to wrap everything whereas if you're alone it'll take about 2 hours. It won't take that long for your guests to devour them though!

Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna Recipe

Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna

Lasagna are always a hit at home, especially during the winter. The layer of spinach and béchamel sauce make the dish very creamy and filling. 

It's suitable for both meat eaters and vegetarians. My little sister-in-law who's deathly allergic to nuts and eggs can also share this dish with all of us.

It's a great dish to make in advance as you can prepare it the day before and keep it in the refrigerator overnight.

Cutlets are a slightly denser Indian version of traditional potato latkes. They are flavored with Indian seasonings like dried mint, turmeric, fried onions, and of course, spicy green peppers.

We make tray-fulls of these tasty potato patties on weekends.  It's a fun and easy recipe to make with kids to get them into the joy of cooking.
