You guys know I’m all about a quick, healthy, and easy one-pan meal. I’m definitely not the girl who loves to spend all night in the kitchen – as much as I love to cook, I like to be in and out of there in 30 minutes so I can relax and enjoy the rest of my night. While cooking a healthy dinner might sometimes seem a little daunting, it can also be as easy as throwing a bunch of ingredients into a single pan, adding some flavors and seasonings, putting it all into a bowl and calling it a day! That's exactly what's happening here with this Egg Roll in a Bowl!
This recipe came to life when I was craving Chinese food the other day, but it was after a friend’s wedding weekend where I was already feeling the effects of a little too much indulging, so I experimented with making a healthier, lighter, vegetable-packed version of egg rolls. The result was so delicious and satisfying that I couldn’t wait to share it here!
It starts with a whole bunch of pre-chopped veggies that you'll just throw together in a pan with your protein of choice - you can use organic ground chicken, turkey, beef, or pork - and then you’ll pump up the flavor with some healthy herbs and spices and coconut aminos (my favorite swap for soy sauce). Super easy... it comes together in a matter of minutes, and it’s delicious served as is, or over a base of coconut cauliflower rice that you can easily make with two ingredients, or you can scoop it into butter lettuce for lettuce wraps!
Egg Roll in a Bowl
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ onion, chopped
1 pound organic ground chicken, turkey, beef, or pork (you choose!)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced (if you don’t have fresh ginger, you can also try it with ground ginger – flavors are slightly different but it will work!)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
¼ cup coconut aminos
1 cup Taylor Farms Broccoli Slaw
1 12-oz bag tri-color coleslaw
Garnish: chopped scallions & sesame seeds
Optional: butter lettuce to create lettuce wraps or a side of Coconut Cauliflower Rice (recipe below)… or just serve as is!
Coconut Cauliflower Rice
If desired, make this side while waiting for the egg roll in a bowl veggies to get tender.
4 cups cauliflower rice (I always use frozen)
½ cup full-fat coconut milk
Salt to taste
Can't wait for this to become a staple in your weeknight dinner routine! And you'll love the coconut cauli rice... I use it as a side or base of my bowls several times a week!
