Avocado Egg Rolls Appetizer Recipe

They’re definitely not authentic egg rolls in any way. But if you’re a fan of all these delicious ingredients in an appetizer, then these are for you. They’re a fantastic appetizer to have at a Game Day or Super Bowl party. Or just for family night! Everyone will love grabbing a few of these and dipping them in our creamy cilantro dipping sauce. YUM!

These are like guacamole egg rolls.  Our recipe is like a chunky guacamole egg roll filling with carrot add to it. The creamy avocado mixture inside the rolls is flavorful and delicious. We like to add shredded carrots in there to give the egg rolls more structure and firmness. Besides, extra vegetables are always good for you too! A platter of these will be a crowd pleaser at parties. Avocado egg rolls are so easy to make and so popular. You might need to make extra because everyone will be devouring them so fast!

Avocado Egg Rolls w/ Cilantro Parmesan Dip

We didn’t want to have mushy avocado egg rolls. Adding shredded carrot give great structure and flavor to the egg rolls. Also, extra veggies are always a plus! Eating these fresh and hot is best because they’ll be more crispy. The moisture from the avocado will them them soften fast.

Ingredients

For the Egg Rolls

  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 12 egg roll wrappers  (or Lumpia/Spring Roll pastry wrappers)
  • 4 medium avocados , seed removed & peeled
  • 1 cup (128 g) shredded carrots
  • 5 sprigs green onions , diced (or 1/3 cup diced red onion)
  • 1 medium tomato , diced
  • 3 Tablespoons (45 ml) chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) paprika
  • kosher salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste

For the Cilantro Parmesan Dip

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (112 g) mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup (35 g) grated parmesan cheese
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup (240 ml) chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) kosher salt or sea salt , or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) sugar , optional or to taste

Instructions 

Make the Dipping Sauce:

  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender (oil, water, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, black pepper, salt, and sugar) until everything is smooth. Set aside.

Make the Filling

  • In bowl, mash the avocados to a chunky texture. Add carrots, onions, tomato, cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir to combine evenly, but try not to over-mix and lose the chunky texture of the avocados. Taste the filling and add additional salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Rolling & Frying: Using egg roll wrappers or spring roll wrappers, add about 2 Tablespoons of the filling to each wrapper. Tuck and roll the wrapper around the filling (watch the video in the post above to see how to roll even and tight rolls). Brush the top corner of the wrapper with water to help seal the wrapper end, and then finish rolling the egg roll. Repeat for all the egg rolls.
  • Fill large frying pan with about 1/2-inch of vegetable oil and heat oil to about 350°F.
  • Carefully add egg rolls to frying pan, without crowding the egg rolls in the pan (they will stick together if placed too close. Fry the egg rolls in batches if needed).

    Fry each side of the egg rolls for about 3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Remove and blot on paper towel to remove excess oil.

    Serve with the dipping sauce.
