My Thoughts on This Recipe

I love this Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe from Evolving Table. It was recommended to me from Kate’s Clean Plate, and I’m so glad she mentioned it on Instagram! This recipe is fast, easy, healthy and delicious. I think it is great for those nights where you are wanting takeout, but you want to eat something with some semblance of nutrition. It’s also inexpensive to make and both an easy Paleo dinner and easy Keto dinner recipe.

Ingredients

The main ingredients in this bowl consist of turkey, cabbage, carrots, onion, garlic, ginger, coconut aminos and some other flavor enhancers. Read the full recipe here.

Recommendations

I did not make any rice to go with this, and because it was our whole meal, my husband and I ate all four servings, so if you are serving more people or are serving it on its own, you might want to double the recipe.

I have made this a few times, and I find the best cabbage is just plain old green cabbage. I’ve tried it with cole slaw mix, and other types of cabbage, and my favorite is the regular green kind probably because it stands up to the sauteing better than some of the others.

I used a higher fat turkey, I think 85/15 to add a little more flavor and moisture to the turkey, and I would continue to do that in the future.

This is a little thing, but I also have been chopping up the shredded carrots a bit, and I like to do that because otherwise they are too long and I feel like I’m choking on them. Haha.

This last time I made Egg Roll in a bowl, I topped mine with some sriracha, and that was fantastic. Give it a try if you like a little more spice.I have also discovered this ginger paste, which makes adding ginger so much easier and faster. Next time I will add more like 2 teaspoons.

Future Ideas/Variations

My husband wanted this to have more flavor, but I thought it was great as is. Perhaps in the future, I will try adding a little bit of fish sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin, gochujang or korean chili. I also might try rice wine vinegar in place of the apple cider vinegar.

You could also switch up the protein with shrimp, beef or pork and add more vegetables to the mix like bell pepper, peas or green beans.

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed this, and I appreciate that it is healthy. I legitimately think I could eat this once a week. Give it a try!
