This easy easy recipe cookery demo is a simple and clearly presented step-by-step description of how to cook mini veggie spring rolls. (The YouTube title is "Mini Veggie Egg Rolls" which may be the most common American name for these. In the UK we usually call them "Spring Rolls" so ... whichever works for you!)
This recipe demo starts well with minimum preamble, just a brief but cheerful cartoon screen followed by concise introductions to the team. Fantastic ! At almost 10 mins long this is one of the longest cookery demos in this section so far, yet time flies and the close-up focus on the food with no irritating adverts or other distractions is ideal. Presenters Raimy and Melissa show almost every step in the process and certainly all the preparation of the vegetable filling. It's surprising that there were no beanshoots included in the recipe though very handy that all ingredients are likely to be easy to source (onion, garlic, carrots, cabbage, celery).
Presented by Raimy & Melissa
The clear presentation of this demo is enhanced by the soothing soundtrack (theme song written & performed by Raimy & Tom). After watching this cookery presentation one is left with the impression that mini veggie spring rolls are quick, easy, and fun to prepare and cook. Most of the time taken seems to be in the preparation and fine-chopping of the vegetable filling. By "easy" we mean "uncomplicated", though the very fine-chopping looks like a certain level of skill would help.
This is a fun and motivating cookery demo - with no "healthy eating" or "nutritional benefits" lecture at the end.
All in all it's a breath of fresh air: Enjoy and be inspired to cook!
Could be Vegetarian if you omit the "fish sauce" added to the pan later in the demo.
Do also check the ingredient list on the "egg pastry" if using a shop-bought product.
