Rice Paper Vegetable Bourekas

Jordana Hart (ihartnutrition) is by far one of my favourite bloggers; and I had to make her bourekas recipe. Lately, I have been on a plant based kick – where I am trying to integrate more plant based meals in my weekly meal plan! I substituted the ground beef for some sweet potatoes and fire roasted red peppers!

Grocery List

  • 4 rice paper wrappers
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 fire roasted red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp chilli paste
  • 1/2 tbsp honey (local if possible)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper for seasoning

How to make it

  1. Preheat your oven at 400F.
  2. While your oven is preheating, prep all your vegetables that you will be using.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil. When hot, add onion and garlic. Caramelize until fragrant.
  4. Add the cabbage, sweet potato and the red pepper.
  5. Sauté for 15 minutes until caramalized.

To make the bourekas,

  1. Soak the rice paper in water so you are able to handle it.
  2. When manageable, lay flat on a cutting board; add 1 scoop of the mixture and wrap.
  3. Fold the rice paper like into a pocket.
  4. Keep repeating until you no longer have any filling mixture.
  5. Add egg wash to the top, and sprinkle some sesame seeds
  6. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
