Ingredients

  • 6 scallions
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce or more if you like it very spicy
  • 1 cup kale leaves packed
  • 4 sun dried tomato halves in olive oil or soaked to soften if dry
  • 1 can black beans rinsed
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 medium avocados
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 16 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Crema

  • 3/4 cup light sour cream or plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1 scallion
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and set the baking rack to the middle position.
  • Chop scallions, cilantro, chipotle pepper, sun dried tomatoes and kale, and combine them in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add drained and rinsed black beans, lime zest and juice, and shredded cheese. Stir all to combine.
  • Cut each avocado in half, remove the pit, and cut each avocado into dice sized pieces.
  • Lightly toss the avocado into the ingredients in the bowl, being careful to not mash the avocado pieces.
  • Taste the mixture and season with salt.
  • Lay an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface, and place about 2 tablespoons of the avocado filling in the center of the wrapper. Fold as shown in the illustration above, or according to the package directions, brushing the last edge with a bit of the beaten egg white to seal.
  • Place the egg roll seam side down on a baking pan. Repeat with the remaining egg roll wrappers.
  • Brush both sides of each egg roll with olive oil.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, turning the egg rolls over after the first 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden on each side.
  • While the egg rolls are baking, prepare crema by blending together sour cream or Greek yogurt, lime zest, cilantro, and scallion in a blender or the bowl of a food processor until combined. Season with salt.
  • Serve the egg rolls with the crema dipping sauce.

Notes

Be careful to not overfill the wrappers, or the filling will leak out while the egg rolls bake.
