Spring rolls are so names because they are traditionally made in the early spring when the first vegetables are ready for harvest. Most spring rolls are made with early cabbage, bean sprouts, and other early vegetables. They great to go with an Asian meal, or as an appetizer, however the majority of us only know these tasty rolls when they come along with our Chinese takeout.
Spring rolls are very easy to make, and make a fun addition to any meal, not just your Asian themed meals. This link will teach you have to make your own vegetable spring rolls at home.
