For the Egg Rolls

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 large carrot julienned
  • 1 stalk celery julienned
  • 1 green onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 8 egg roll wrappers

For the Sauce

  • ¼ cup ponzu
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha or to taste


For the Egg Rolls

  • Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and sesame oil and allow them to heat for one minute.
    1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Next, add the cabbage, carrot, green onion, and celery and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft and starting to brown around the edges. Make sure to stir them occasionally so they don’t burn.
    2 cups shredded cabbage, 1 large carrot, 1 stalk celery, 1 green onions
  • Add the garlic, ginger, and soy sauce and stir to combine. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until all of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and set the filling aside to cool.
    2 cloves garlic, 1 teaspoon grated ginger, 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Fill each egg roll wrapper with about ¼ cup of the filling. Brush the edges with water and roll it up like a burrito.
    8 egg roll wrappers
  • Lightly grease the air fryer basket and add the egg rolls, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Spray the tops of the egg rolls with olive oil spray.
  • Cook at 400F for 7 minutes. Flip the egg rolls and cook them for an additional 5-6 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to three days.

For the Sauce

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to serve.
    ¼ cup ponzu, 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce, 1 lime, 2 teaspoons sriracha


  • Serving size is one egg roll.
  • You can keep the fried egg rolls warm in a 250F oven for up to 30 minutes if you need to make them in batches!
  • Don't overfill the egg roll wrappers or you will have difficulty folding them.
  • The egg rolls should be placed in a single layer in the air fryer basket, without touching, so that they get crispy all over.
