Better Than Takeout 10 Minute Healthy Egg Roll in A Bowl
Purple and Green cabbage are the main ingredients of this delish creation. While you certainly can shred your own, it’s quick and easy to grab a bag or 2 of the Cole Slaw Mix found in the lettuce aisle. I used one of the traditional coleslaw mixes and added a handful of shredded carrots and a small bag of purple cabbage. Mushrooms are the other star of this dish. I used a combination of baby Portobella and Shitake and cut them on the thicker side to provide some texture and depth. Any combination of mushrooms will do.
Choose your protein
I used scrambled eggs in this version to add some protein and keep it vegetarian. Some other proteins that would be great to add are:
-Ground Chicken, Turkey, or Beef
First, do quick prep of your protein in a large skillet. Set aside to add right before serving. Once you have your base of cabbage ready, we do a quick sauté with some garlic, ginger, rice vinegar, and chili paste. Add back in your protein and combine. Keto, Paleo and weight watchers friendly.
Fun Toppings To Add On
This is another way to customize your meal. Any or all of these toppings are great additions:
-Hoisin Sauce (a sweeter option)
-Asian Mustard or Duck Sauce (more traditional takeout options)
-Peanuts or Cashews
How To Serve
This Better Than Takeout 10 Min Egg Roll In A Bowl is ready to eat as is with your toppings and protein. It would also be great in Lettuce Wraps, small flour tortillas, or on a bed of rice or cauliflower rice. Leftovers can be eaten cold the next or warmed up. I don’t suggest freezing this meal as the cabbage tends to get pretty soggy when frozen.
