Another idea to use my air fryer came to me.
I like egg rolls, but I don’t like using a lot of oil and I don’t like deep-frying in my kithcne either.
So, this was exactly the type of food I should make with my air fryer, but the air fryer solves both problems.
I just happened to find beautiful fresh ear wood mushrooms, and I thought they would be great for my egg roll filling.
The Asian grocery store, United Noodles, carry them, and I love their package.
This is how they look after quickly rinsed.
They have a unique but pleasant texture, and I enjoy them very much.
They don’t have a strong taste themselves, so I like to use them for many Chinese dishes where you use rich strong sauce.
For the filling, along with the ear wood mushrooms, I used carrots, clea noodles, and plant-based ground “meat” from Ikea.
I like many vegan products at Ikea, and this is one of them.
Ready to be cooked!
The air fryer is amazing!
These egg rolls turned out great.
Perfectly crunchy, just like deep-fried, but with much less oil!
I hope you can see how crispy they are from this picture.
