CHOOSING AN EGG ROLL IN A BOWL OVER AN EGG ROLL

Who needs the egg roll wrapper when you have all of the goodness that’s inside of the egg roll in one enormous bowl?

I don’t know about you, but I sure do feel crummy after eating an egg roll.  Maybe it’s the grease the egg roll is fried in or the gluten-filled wrapper.

But did you know all of the ingredients INSIDE of the egg roll are actually pretty good for you?

So let’s take all of those nutritious ingredients out, toss ’em around in a skillet, and make an egg roll in a bowl!

INGREDIENTS FOR AN EGG ROLL IN A BOWL RECIPE

So what exactly are those nutritious ingredients inside of an egg roll?

  • Pork: eh!  Ok, not super healthy, but we actually use a lean ground turkey in this recipe instead!
  • Cabbage: Did you know that the large majority of an egg roll is made up of cabbage?
  • Carrots: Oh yes, an egg roll in a bowl would not be complete without this nutritional powerhouse.
  • Ginger + garlic: the traditional, and albeit necessary, flavors that pack an anti-inflammatory punch.
  • Soy sauce: to make this recipe Whole30, Paleo and keto friendly we use liquid coconut aminos, instead!

  1. In a large saute pan over medium heat drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil and add ground turkey. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until turkey is almost cooked through.

  2. Push turkey to the side of the pan and add onion and other tablespoon of oil. Saute for 3-4 minutes. Add shredded carrots, garlic, and ginger and saute for 2 minutes. Stir the vegetables and turkey together.

  3. Pour chicken broth in the pan and scrape the bottom of it to deglaze it. Add cabbage, coconut aminos or soy sauce, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Stir well and cover with a lid. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until cabbage is to your desired tenderness.
  4. Just before serving add toasted sesame oil and top with green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Serve over regular rice, cauliflower rice, or eat it in a bowl by itself. Enjoy!  See this recipe in Healthy Meal Plan #1
