Almost As Good As My Favorite Chinese Restaurant


I have had some of the absolute best Chinese food in the world since I moved to America but I have also had some of the worst. Buying frozen entrees and side items like wonton and egg rolls is a hit-or-miss thing; they are either excellent or need to be tossed in the trash. The last time I was at Trader Joe's I saw that they had a lot of different ethnic foods and the vegetable egg rolls piqued my curiosity. The next time I go there I am getting several packages of these for when I get a late night craving for egg rolls. These come five to a package and nicely packaged under the Trader Ming's name; when I cooked these I used a little bit of canola oil in a pan but I did let them sit out for about twenty minutes before I made them. I learned the hard way that if you try to fry them straight out of the freezer you end up with a brown and crisp outside but the inside is cold or still partially frozen. You can serve these with duck sauce or a dipping sauce but even on their own, they do have a great taste to them. Each egg roll contains 130 calories, 6 grams of fat, 340 milligrams of sodium, 13 grams of carbohydrates and 6 grams of protein. I have no idea if that's better or worse than the ones that I get from local Chinese restaurants but I would have to guess that they are about the same in regards to calories and sodium. If you are frying these it will add a little more fat to the total but that is the way to get the best taste from them.
