How do you make Air Fryer Egg Rolls?

Prep your filling of chicken, cabbage, onion, carrots, ginger, garlic and coconut aminos take about 5 minutes before you get to the unique part of your preparation: rolling them up. 

With your filling ready, roll scoops of ¼ cup of egg roll filling into each single coconut wrap. Roll them, and place the first four egg rolls in the air fryer basket for 3 minutes at 300ºF, seam side down. Repeat with the second set of four egg rolls.

Finally, fry the snap peas in 1 tablespoon of sesame oil with garlic for 5 minutes, followed by letting them sauté a bit longer: seven to eight minutes.

Other tips for making Air Fryer Egg Rolls:

  • Spring for organic chicken, carrots and onions and snap peas if your grocer has them or from your local farmers market

  • If you’re adventurous, replace the honey in the dipping sauce with maple syrup for a unique twist of a dip

  • If you know you are going to freeze the snap peas, blanch them by scalding the peas in boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Blanching stops enzyme actions from causing the snap peas to lose flavor, color and texture.
