  4. Prepare the spring rolls.
  5. Clean the vegetable and cut them into julienne strips. Set the clove of garlic aside.

  7. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, the soybean sprouts and mix well.

  9. Meanwhile, cut some square-shaped (cm 10x10) out of the phyllo pastry.

  12. Drain them on paper towel and serve them immediately with the sweet and sour sauce, the soy sauce and, if you want, the sesame seeds.
  13. On the basis of your taste, you can also try them with lime and fresh mint.
(*) The sweet and sour sauce has to be prepared a few hours before you make the spring rolls. Keep it in the fridge until it’s time to serve. Cold, it’s the perfect combination with the hot and crisp spring rolls..
Instead of frying the spring rolls, you can cook them in the oven. In this case, remember to brush their surface with a trickle of oil. Bake at 180°C for about 10/12 mins.
You can also freeze the spring rolls before cooking them.
