Veggie-Dog-Roll-Ups (Low Fat)These baked roll-ups are great for a party or family meal. They are lower in fat and calories, yet taste like a rich treat. Makes 10 roll-ups. Prep: 15 minutes. Cooking 30 minutes. Total time: 45 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1-20 oz can Worthington Low Fat Veja-Links
  • 1-14.5 oz can pinto beans or similar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil (divided use)
  • 1/2 c onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded, minced
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 lb egg roll wrappers (20 count)

Directions:

  1. Drain the Veja-Links and roll them in a clean kitchen towel or paper toweling to dry.
  2. Rinse and drain the beans. Set them aside in a strainer.
  3. In a medium skillet on medium high heat, add 2 teaspoons of the oil and saute the onion and bell pepper for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the garlic, jalapeno, tomato, and chili powder; saute another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the pinto beans.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and put 2 tablespoons of water in a cup by your work station.
  6. Stack 2 wrappers together at your work station so that one corner faces you. (You will use a doubled egg roll wrapper for each roll-up.)
  7. Place 2 tablespoon of the skillet mixture in the center and spread across to the size of a Veja-Link. Add a Veja-Link on top.
  8. Fold bottom corner up and over the link. Fold sides in towards the center. Roll towards the top. Moisten the top point with a bit of water on your finger. Seal the roll shut.
  9. Lightly brush the roll-up on all sides with some of the remaining oil. Place on a large un-greased baking sheet.
  10. Repeat this process, spacing the roll-ups at least 1/2 inch apart.
  11. Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and flip them over. Return to oven and bake another 15 minutes, or until well-browned.
  12. Cool 5-10 minutes. Serve with wasabi sauce, mustard, ketchup, or your favorite dipping sauce.
*I have used Worthington products for many years and my family loves them. Recently, Atlantic Natural Foods sent me sample of the latest Worthington low fat products, and I have used them in this recipe.
