Bean and Vegetable Egg Rolls

YIELD Makes 12 servings

Chick-peas add a new dimension to this Oriental favorite and provide more protein than any other dried bean or pea.


1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
2 green onions with tops, sliced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups shredded napa cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
4 ounces fresh or canned bean sprouts, rinsed
1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1‑1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
Black pepper (optional)
1 egg, beaten
12 egg roll wrappers
Peanut or vegetable oil
Plum Dipping Sauce (recipe)


  1. Combine sesame seeds and sesame oil in large skillet. Cook and stir over low heat 2 to 3 minutes or until sesame seeds begin to brown. Add green onions, ginger and garlic; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Add cabbage, carrots, celery, mushrooms and bean sprouts; cover. Cook 8 minutes or until cabbage is wilted. Stir in chickpeas and soy sauce; season to taste with pepper, if desired. Cool 10 minutes; stir in egg.
  2. Place 1/3 cup vegetable mixture near one corner of egg roll wrapper. Brush edges of egg roll wrapper with water. Fold bottom corner of egg roll wrapper up over filling; fold sides in and roll up. Repeat with remaining filling and egg roll wrappers.
  3. Heat 1 inch peanut oil in large, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat until oil is 375°F; adjust heat to maintain temperature. Fry egg rolls 3 to 5 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels; serve hot with Plum Dipping Sauce. Garnish, if desired.
