Springrolls Stuffed with Stir-Fried Veggies

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

When it comes to kids, serving veggies has never been easy. Whether it's the appearance, smell, or taste; it has always been a common case whereby moms had to use tremendous amounts of creativity in cooking, just so that they could make their little ones eat these very important nutrition sources. As a kid, I too disliked veggies. However, whenever my mom would conceal them by wrapping them in springrolls, I was more than willing to devour my share that I often end up eating too many of them.
