What’s in Egg Roll in a Bowl

A delicious array of Asian-inspired ingredients that come together in a jiffy!

GROUND PORK The classic egg roll filling is made with ground pork, but feel free to substitute it for beef or chicken.  For a vegetarian option try doubling up on the veggies or using ground tofu!

VEGGIES We love the addition of the coleslaw mix but for some extra heartiness and your own favorite veggies from celery to cauliflower, water chestnuts or mini corn!

I keep this low carb but if you crave a little crunch, add some fried wonton strips or baked wonton chips.

Not only is this great as leftovers, I often intentionally double the recipe so I can freeze servings for lunches. It’s SO good.

For best results, put leftover egg roll in a bowl in a container with a tight-fitting lid. It should keep about three days but it also freezes well if needed.

To reheat, simply pop it in the microwave, give it a good stir and refresh the flavors with a dash of soy sauce, red chile paste (for added heat!) and salt and pepper.
