Mealtime Mama: Springtime Spring Rolls


We know the weekend definitely didn’t feel like spring, but — technically speaking — spring has sprung! It officially began last Saturday. So to honor the new season, we thought we’d share a recipe and photo we found online at Tan Click here to visit the website to get more info.

Happy Spring, everybody!



  • 12 oz. Spring roll wrappers
  • 1 cup Ground pork 1 cup
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 oz. Mung bean noodle (or beanthread)
  • 1 cup Green cabbage, sliced thin

  • 1 tbsp. Garlic, chopped.
  • 1/2 cup Flour and water paste

  • Soak the beanthread in water until soft, drain and cut into short lengths.
  • Mix together ground pork, egg, cabbage, bean sprouts, ground pepper, soy sauce and beanthread and put aside.
  • In a pan heat up a little oil and fry the chopped garlic until aromatic, then add the mixture and fry until cooked and well seasoned. Take this mixture off heat and allow to cool.
