Egg Rolls

All sorts of delicious tidbits can be tucked inside an egg roll wrapper, and they're a cinch to assemble. This recipe offers a crisp, mildly seasoned cabbage filling, but like fried rice, the variations are almost endless. Look for egg roll wrappers in the produce section of the supermarket. One (16-ounce) package yields about 16 egg roll wrappers.
