Most egg roll wrappers that I've seen are vegan. Egg roll is more of a name than a description...

I don't know, I think a lot of them do have egg (one's I've seen do). I have heard that in some asian groceries there are brands of wraps for certain kinds of buddhists who don't eat eggs. But I cannot confirm this.

When I wanted to make vegan samosas, I used vegan tortillas. Not the same thing, but if you are going to fry or bake them, they come out very similarly. Of course you couldn't use tortillas to make won ton soup!

the ones i looked at did contain egg. but if you've seen them without, i'll keep looking. i also like the idea of using rice wrappers.

Look for "spring roll" wrappers specifically. They are thinner than egg roll wrappers and usually are just flour and water. You'll have better luck if you go to an asian market, all the egg roll wrappers I've seen at normal grocery stores have eggs. They're usually in the frozen section.

Rice paper wrappers are also good, but are meant to be eaten fresh and not crispy fried/baked. I make fresh spring rolls with lettuce, julienned carrots, scallions, bean sprouts and age (fried tofu).

You'd want spring roll wrappers (only flour and water), not wonton/eggroll wrappers.

A yummy summer roll dip/spring roll dip can be made from hoisin sauce, peanut butter, a little water if needed to thin, and some chili sauce. Duck sauce is also pretty good.
