Recently my husband and I just decided to hang out one evening and we chilled with fresh juice and spring rolls. They looked so delicious and appetizing, until I bit into it and was so disappointed 🙁

The spring roll wrap was bland and the filling was not any better. I hadn’t tasted rolls that bad in a while. I like spring rolls and such abuse of this queen of Nigerian small chops was not to be tolerated! So I went looking for a great recipe.

If you’re like me and you want to try your hands on this pastry, then this recipe from We Eat African is worth a try. I browsed through other recipes and they seemed a little complicated. This one from We Eat African looked a bit more straightforward.
