Ingredients for Egg Roll in a Bowl

Ground Meat – I use ground pork, ground turkey, or chicken. For a vegetarian version, try scrambled eggs or tofu.

Vegetables – Pre-made coleslaw mix or broccoli slaw makes it easy, but you can shred your own cabbage as well. To add more to the mix, grated carrots, cauliflower rice, and finely chopped broccoli are all great options.

Flavors – Fresh minced garlic and ginger add great flavor. If you don’t have minced garlic, use 1 teaspoon of garlic powder in place. Replace regular or low-sodium soy sauce with coconut aminos or tamari if needed.
