This healthy vegetarian baked avocado and vegetable egg rolls recipe can be made with just about anything you happen to have on hand. The creamy avocado mixes nicely with the crunch of the shell and vegetables. But, the avocado does not reheat well, so only make enough to serve immediately. The sambal oelek in the sauce is a chili paste that can be found in the Asian food aisle of most grocery stores.
I baked these, but frying is actually not as unhealthy as you may think since they only need to fry for a few minutes to get crispy. Just follow the directions on the egg roll wrappers.
