My new obsession…this Egg Roll Bowl! One of my favorite asian foods is by far the “Egg Roll.” I am a fan of that crispy little treat dipped in some sweet and sour sauce, but I am not a fan of the way I feel later after eating said treat. This is my new favorite lunch. The may not have the crispy outer shell and sweet and sour sauce, but I am telling you if you are eating clean and missing your egg rolls this will surely help! This is also a great Whole 30 recipe too, simply replace the Tamari or Soy Sauce with Coconut Aminos and you are good to go! I made a huge batch of this so I had a lunch for everyday this past week. And let me tell you it is still good even on the 5th day of the week.
Egg Roll Bowl
Yield 4 Servings
Love egg rolls? ME TOO! But generally speaking they are not the greatest for us. This egg roll bowl is seriously the next best thing! It is so filling too. You can use soy sauce if you prefer, but I find Tamari is just as tasty. You could make this Whole30 by using coconut aminos in place of the Tamari.
