I’ve been pretty obsessed with making egg rolls lately! It’s mostly because it’s a great way to make something delicious lower in points.
Today I made Spinach and Artichoke Dip Egg Rolls. Instead of having chips you get the crunch of the egg roll wrapper.
I didn’t even miss the chips!
Egg roll wrappers are typically 1-2 point depending on the brand you buy. That’s why it’s always best to doublecheck recipes based on the ingredients you buy.
As far as lightening up the dip itself there were a few things I did.
Instead of using regular sour cream I used fat free sour cream. It’s only 2 points for fat free sour cream vs. 10 points for regular sour cream.
Four ounces of reduced-fat cream cheese has 10 points compared to regular cream cheese which has 18 points.
Making these simple changes reduces the points without impacting the flavor.
When you buy the artichoke hearts make sure they are in water, not oil. The ones in oil have points.
These Spinach and Artichoke Dip Egg Rolls can be made in the air fryer or baked in the oven. I prefer the air fryer but it turns out great either way.
This recipe makes 10 egg rolls. If you don’t want to make them all right away you can get the dip ready and store what you don’t use in an airtight container in the fridge.
Yield: 10 egg rolls (3 points each for blue, green and purple.
- 10 egg roll wrappers
- 4 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese (room temperature)
- 5 oz. frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
- 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
- 1/4 cup artichoke hearts
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded
- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Add the cream cheese, spinach, mozzarella cheese, sour cream, artichoke hears, Parmesan cheese, garlic and salt to a large bowl. Mix together.
Lay out the egg roll wrappers. Add 2 tablespoons of the dip and fold up the bottom of the egg roll wrapper and fold in the sides. Roll up the egg roll. When you get to the end dab your finger in water and wet the edge of the egg roll wrapper, then seal it closed. Repeat with the other egg rolls and dip.
Spray the egg rolls with olive oil spray.
Cook egg rolls in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 6 minutes, flipping the egg rolls half way through.
Bake egg rolls in the oven at 400 degrees F for 8 minutes, flipping half way through.
