Egg Roll in a Bowl

Egg Roll in a Bowl?” you say. “What’s that?”

Plain and simple, it’s “One of the best easy meals you will ever have.”

Yes, I am being serious!!  All of the goodness of an egg roll and remove the outer wrapper and you’ve got a huge bowl of delicious, healthy goodness.

Plus you can make it all in just one pan… which translates to easy meal clean up.

You can thank me later!

I love my Egg Rolls but don’t have then nearly often as I would like.  At my last job, one of the guys and his family would have an Egg Roll sale a few times a year and I always ordered a few dozen.  Yes, a few dozen, they were that good.  Between leaving that job,  limiting the amount of deep fried foods that I eat, and having to avoid wheat (meaning I can’t have that delicious crunchy wrapper!), I think I have had 1 Egg Roll in the last 2 years.

Then I discovered Egg Roll in a Bowl.

Where have you been all my life!?!?!

This recipe is great not only because of it’s great taste, but also because it works for so many special diets.

It’s paleo, done with coconut aminos instead of soy, with the same modification it also works for the Autoimmune Paleo Diet (AIP). Plus it’s naturally low carb and grain free, due to the absence of the wrapper.

Of course, you could serve it with any kind of wrap you like or over rice, if you like.  Want to up the veggie factor? Serve it on top of cauliflower rice for a huge serving of healthy veggies.

Egg Roll in a Bowl

Serves 2


  • 1 TBS Avocado oil
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (medium, diced)
  • 2-3 stalks of Green Onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ginger (peeled and grated)
  • 1/2 pound Ground Pork
  • 3 cups Coleslaw Mix
  • 1 cup Bean Sprouts
  • 2 TBS Coconut Aminos


  1. Heat the avocado oil in a pan over Medium heat.  Add the yellow onion, green onion, garlic and ginger. Cook 4-5 minutes, until everything is soft.
  2. Add the pork, breaking it up as it cooks, about 8-10 minutes, or until everything is cooked through.
  3. Stir in the coleslaw mix, bean sprouts and coconut aminos.  Cook about 5 minutes, or until all vegetables have softened, stirring frequently.
  4. Divide into bowls and enjoy!

If you don’t have coconut aminos, you can use tamari or soy sauce (it will no longer be GF if you use soy sauce).

I have often thought about making this as a side dish, instead of the main course, simply by omitting the ground pork!

I honestly cannot say how well this reheats, as there has never been leftovers when we made it for dinner!  I did however make this for lunch today and since I was the only one home, I will have leftovers for tomorrow.

Let me know if you give this (or any of my recipes) a try and what you think!
