This Egg Roll in a Bowl only takes 20 minutes to make and is an easy keto friendly, gluten free, low carb, fast dinner recipe that is loaded with all of the flavours of an egg roll.
Bowls are in and for good reason. They’re an easy way to get in your protein and veggies in a totally instagrammable meal. This recipe was inspired by one of my favourite Chinese food take-out staples, the egg roll. Crunchy, meaty, and umami-rich, I cannot NOT get an egg roll when I order in, but I also get that it’s not the most nutritionally balanced option on the menu…
Why This Recipe Works
Enter my egg roll in a bowl. This recipe is keto friendly and gluten free, made with tons of veggies and flavourful ground pork.
It’s super quick and easy to throw together as well as it only takes a total of 20 minutes to make from start to finish.
This recipe of egg roll in a bowl combines all of the usual suspects in an egg roll but without the deep-fried wrapper. It’s basically a stir-fry without the noodles or rice so it keeps it super protein rich and fibre packed. It’s also really flavourful thanks to the ginger, garlic, and sesame oil.
Table of contents
Sauce Ingredients – You’ll need sodium gluten free tamari, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil and then arrowroot flour to thicken the sauce that you’ll use for the egg roll in a bowl.
Ground Pork – You can use extra lean or full fat pork for this recipe! Just make sure when you are cooking it, to drain any extra liquids in the pan.
Vegetables – We use a mix of broccoli slaw, shredded cabbage, cremini mushrooms, and bean spouts.
How to Make This Recipe
Step 2: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat and add the pork. Cook until browned.
Step 3: add in the ginger and garlic for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Add the broccoli slaw, cabbage, and mushrooms and stir until cooked down.
Step 5: Stir in the reserved sauce and bean sprouts and toss. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 6: Once combined, divide into four bowls and top with sesame seeds and sriracha, to taste.
I use cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli slaw and bean sprouts in my egg roll in a bowl, but you can totally switch up the veggies to use whatever you have on hand.
I also like ground pork which is a bit more traditional, but you could easily swap in turkey, chicken, beef, or even soy ground meat.
If you like heat, you can add sriracha on top. If you’re not a fan of heat, you can use hoisin sauce instead.
This keto egg roll in a bowl will become one of your easy fast meal prep staples because it re-heats really well, so go ahead and make a double batch for the whole week.
Make sure you store everything in airtight containers in the fridge.
Yes! If you want to cut down on the prep time, you can purchase pre-made broccoli slaw to make this recipe faster.
You can use sliced peppers, match-stick cut carrots, or whatever vegetables you have in your kitchen!
