Homemade egg rolls are delicious but they can be a big production. Because traditional eggrolls are fried, they are not a good idea when eating lighter. Deconstructing the eggroll, transforms it into an easy and lighter meal ready within a few minutes. The addition of lentils and veggie ground to this dish provides additional protein and fibre to ensure the whole family is full for hours.

What do I need?
Cook the lentils & rice: Rinse the lentils in a colander. In a medium pot add the lentils and water (1 1/2 cups (2p), 3 cups (4p), 4 1/2 cups (6p)). Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to low, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked through.
In a second pot, bring water (1 cup (2p), 2 cups (4p), 3 cups (6p)) to a boil. Add salt and jasmine rice, cover and cook on low heat for 11 to 12 minutes.
Cook the onion & garlic: Wash and rinse all produce. While the rice and lentils are cooking, slice the onion and garlic.
In a lightly oiled pan, add the onion and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the onion is tender. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Thinly slice the cabbage and carrots.
