Homemade Air Fryer Eggs Rolls paired with a Spicy Ponzu Sauce! These are the perfect appetizer for parties and entertaining.
These Air Fryer Egg Rolls are a tasty treat and the perfect appetizer to make in the air fryer using egg roll wrappers with a homemade filling.
Recipe ingredients and notes:
- Olive Oil
- Sesame Oil – Regular sesame oil, not toasted.
- Cabbage – short on time? You can also use shredded coleslaw mix!
- Green Onion
- Ginger – Don’t have fresh ginger you can use ground in a pinch, but literally use a pinch or two as dried herbs and spices are concentrated.
- Soy Sauce – We always use low sodium, but you can use whichever you prefer. Can’t have soy? Try Coconut Aminos!
- Egg Roll Wrappers – You can find vegan egg roll wrappers too!
For the full ingredient amount and full instructions on how to make air fryer egg rolls see the recipe card below.
Heat up a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat and heat the oil and sesame oil. Then add in the cabbage, carrot, and celery and cook for 8-10 minutes, until the veggies are softening. Continue to stir while cooking to prevent burning.
To the pan 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.
Now you can fill each egg roll wrapper with about ¼ cup of the filling. Brush the edges with water and roll it up like a burrito.
To cook the egg rolls in the air fryer 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 the egg rolls at 400F for 7 minutes. Flip the egg rolls and cook them for an additional 5-6 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
Recipe Tips and Alterations:
- You can keep the fried egg rolls warm in a 250 degree F oven for up to 30 minutes if you need to make them in batches.
- You can add other veggies if you like! We sometimes add in bok choy which is delicious.
- Want meat? Pork, shrimp, or even chicken work well! Just cook the protein prior to adding to the wrappers.
How to serve:
We love serving with the sauce we added to the bottom of the recipe card, but you can also try our Chinese Garlic Sauce, Homemade Teriyaki Sauce Recipe, or even our Scallion Pancakes Dipping Sauce.
