Have you been thinking about some of your favourite international dishes and takeaway favourites and wondered if vegetable spring rolls are vegan? Keep reading to find out all you need to know.

Spring rolls

Spring rolls is a name for a huge variety of stuffed and rolled appetisers from East Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cuisines.

The methods and recipes vary greatly between countries and even cities, but the general idea is a seasoned filing, often vegetables, seafood or occasionally meat, rolled in wrapper-type pastry that is usually deep-fried. Spring roll filling is typically on the dry side for consistency and they rely on dipping sauces for extra flavour and moisture. 

Are spring rolls vegan?

Excluding any spring rolls that contain seafood or meat, the answer is generally yes, spring rolls are vegan-friendly. The dough is simply made from flour, water and salt and vegetable fillings are nearly always 100% plant-based.
