Butternut Squash "Winter" Rolls

Winter Roll here does not refer to your's actually my version of a Spring Roll made with Winter veggies.  You can use any of your favorite squash here.  I had some left over pulled pork so I put that in but you could add any type of meat like roasted chicken (or even leave meat out!).  The intention here is to use leftovers so don't go too crazy looking for these items.  However the squash is essential!


2 cups peeled and bite size diced squash
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup garbanzo beans (drained)
1 cup pork or chicken leftovers
1 small head of cabbage peeled and chopped finely
1 small salad onion thinly sliced
Spring roll wrappers (available on the Asian foods aisle)
rice noodles (optional - need to be prepped during step 1 per package direction)

1. Preheat oven to 375.  Toss squash with soy sauce, sesame oil and olive oil.  While oven is heating let these marinade.
2. Put squash on a cookie sheet and roast about 20 minutes
3. Meanwhile prep other items (cabbage, onion, etc.)
4. Combine beans and meat, set aside
5. Remove squash and add to bean and meat mixture
6. On the table, set up a plate where you can soak the wrapper in hot water for 30 seconds.  These will need to be done one at a time when everything else is ready.
7. Serve family style, fill to your liking and top with hoisin sauce!
