We’ve been going down the list creating effortless vegan 4th of July concepts. As I sat and brainstormed about what the next recipe should be, I thought about my bucket list and my mind immediately went to.. Avocado Egg Rolls! While I like to keep fried concepts to a minimum on EDS, there are a few staples you just have experience and one of them is this recipe!

 

I discovered this dish on the Cheesecake Factory menu back in circa 2002. This recipe has evolved to be iconic and what they are known for today. That being said, it was always in the back of my mind to explore a homemade vegan option!  This appetizer typically comes with a more sweet vinegar dipping sauce, but I wanted to gravitate away from sweet to incorporate the heat, and the vegan Jalapeno Ranch was born!

 


 

Let me count the ways I love this dish! it’s quick, easy, affordable, can be made in bulk, cut into smaller pieces for more bite size portions with entertaining, it’s crispy, crunchy, tastes just like the traditional recipe, it’s good for any season, you can air fry if desired (outside will look a lil different), the dipping sauce brings the heat to tie the flavors together, and the dipping sauce can be used for countless other dishes!

Vegan Copycat Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls with Jalapeño Ranch


  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale

Filling:

  • 3 large avocados (peeled, pitted, & diced)
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (chopped)
  • 3 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Vegan Egg roll wraps (Dynasty brand)

Jalapeno Ranch:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 2/3 cup vegan sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet about and 1 inch high over medium/high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, gently mash with a fork the avocados, diced sun dried tomatoes, diced red onion salt, pepper, and finely chopped cilantro. You want to keep the pieces for the most part only half mashed. Toss and combine.
  3. Working one at a time, place avocado mixture in the near a corner of the wrapper.
  4. Bring the bottom edge of the wrapper tightly over the filling, folding in the sides. Continue rolling until the top of the wrapper is reached. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrapper again with water, pressing to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and avocado mixture.
  5. Working in batches, add egg rolls to the pan and fry until evenly golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve with the Jalapeño Ranch Dressing.
  6. Jalapeño Ranch: Throw everything in a food processor and blend until smooth.

    1. Hi Joe, I try to use as minimal oil. In the pan I did about 1 inch worth of oil I’d say. So not submerged. Let me know how they turn out!

    2. Really good and super easy to make, I think next time I will add additional spice – the jalapeño I used didn’t give it as much of a kick as I was hoping. Thanks so much for sharing!

  1. Hi there. The instructions for the filling include ingredients that are not listed under the filling but are listed under the ranch, ie jalapeño, lime juice. Can you please clarify ingredients and amounts that go in the actual filling? Thank you!
