My mom made this while I was growing up. She'd make a big batch of it for parties, etc.

We like to try different spring roll recipes. Each one is a little unique. Darla's mom's version of spring rolls is delicious. Frying the tasty filling in really thin lumpia wrappers gives these rolls a nice crunch with every bite. Dip in your favorite sauce (we opted for sweet chili) and you have a perfect appetizer or snack. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Spring Rolls (My Mother's Recipe)

  3. Add carrots, bean sprouts, and bean threads. Mix using fork and spoon.
