Egg roll in a bowl has been an all time favorite and go-to meal since I first tried it. I honestly crave it sometimes! It’s a great dish that is easily put together and can be customized to your liking. I can add whatever type of protein I have on hand and I’m good to go. You can top it with chicken, beef, pork, eggs, or just throw in some extra veggies for volume.
This really hits the spot especially when I’m craving Chinese food, which I absolutely love, but enables me to still hit my goals. It was absolute life saver during prep. I could barely wait to dig in when I made this! It’s just a great, lighter option that will satiate that craving for some greasy Chinese food.
I’d love to tell you that I buy a fresh cabbage and grate it into slaw but I don’t. I take the easy route and buy the pre-shredded package at my local grocery store along with some shredded carrots, a yellow onion, a green onion, mushrooms, and some protein. The protein really depends on what I have on hand or what’s on sale. I will usually buy what’s on sale at the grocery store because having two growing boys at home can really dig into my wallet. This dish can even be made Vegan by using tofu instead of meat. It’s super tasty and filling.
Spice It Up
You can make this dish in under 20 minutes in just one pan or skillet and you’re all set. Clean up is a breeze and you’re full and content.
Definitely give this recipe a try and add any meats or veggies you like. I’ve even topped mine with some chicken and cilantro wantons that I keep on hand from Costco. These things are the best toppers! Trader Joe’s has them as well and they are both delicious.Print
