Egg Roll in a Bowl is an easy Keto recipe that comes together in under 15 minutes. Made with ground meat and vegetables, it is a perfect low-carb, healthy, and quick one-skillet dinner.
Egg Roll in a Bowl is a great alternative to those unhealthy, greasy, deep-fried wraps which are popular street foods. Here, we have the filling of the egg roll, but without the wrapper.
A while ago when I was following the Ketogenic Diet, I used to have this dish regularly. That’s mainly because it comes together in under 15 minutes without compromising on the taste of an actual egg roll.
Egg Roll in a Bowl is a beautiful one-pot or one-skillet dish full of fresh vegetables and protein in a savory sauce. I really can’t take credit for the recipe because it is smeared across the internet. However, this recipe is easily customizable to suit your palate and that makes it versatile.
What Makes This Egg Roll in a Bowl Popular?
There are many reasons why this dish is loved. As I mentioned early, it is:
- uses only one-pot/one-skillet, ie., fewer dirty dishes (?)
- comes together in under 15 minutes
- customizable based on your dietary preferences
- keto-friendly by substituting soy sauce with coconut aminos
- whole-30 compliant, ie., there is no soy, grains, gluten, or sweeteners.
- paleo with no dairy or cereals
- healthy and
- delicious without the greasy wrappers!
What Are The Ingredients in Egg Roll in a Bowl?
This is not one of those fancy recipes which requires exotic ingredients. Rather, you may customize according to your dietary preferences and needs. You’ll need:
- Ground meat of your choice – you may use ground pork, turkey or chicken.
- Thinly sliced onions, cabbage, bell peppers
- Soy Sauce – substitute with coconut aminos if you are Keto or Whole-30 or if you do not tolerate soy well.
There can be many variations to this dish, mainly:
- Use coleslaw mix – if you do not like chopping or shredding vegetables, get packaged coleslaw mix which will include cabbage, carrots, mushrooms and other fresh vegetables.
- Use broccoli coleslaw instead of regular slaw.
- Based on your meat preference, use ground pork or chicken. You may even use shrimp or beef. As always, keep in mind the diet you are in and swap accordingly.
- Use a sriracha-mayo dressing for added flavor.
- Though this recipe is named ‘Egg’ Roll in a Bowl, eggs are optional. So, I haven’t used it in the recipe. That said, you may scramble some eggs and add it in the end before garnishing with spring onion greens. Toss, garnish, and serve.
- This recipe makes enough for two bowls without leftovers.
- You may prep the vegetables beforehand and refrigerate so that it’d be even easier to prepare the next time!
