Egg Roll in a Bowl is SO Easy!

  • Super easy: This egg roll recipe is ‘deconstructed’ so there’s no rolling or frying required!
  • Clean out the fridge: A great way to use up leftover vegetables in the fridge. Finely chop or shred them and add them in. I often add cauliflower rice to stretch it even further.
  • Perfect for prep: Double the batch and have ready-to-eat, healthy meals for days. It reheats beautifully in the microwave.
  • Family favorite: Even the pickiest eaters will ask for seconds!

Ingredients for Egg Roll in a Bowl

Ground Meat – I use ground pork, turkey or chicken, or ground beef depending on what I have on hand! For a vegetarian version, try scrambled eggs or tofu.

Vegetables – Pre-made coleslaw mix or broccoli slaw is a great time-saver, but if you have cabbage, you can shred your own well. To add more to the mix, shredded carrots or cauliflower rice are both great options

Seasoning – Fresh minced garlic and ginger add so much flavor. If you don’t have minced garlic, use 1 teaspoon of garlic powder in place. I use low-sodium soy sauce, replace it with coconut aminos or tamari if needed.
