This recipe for Egg Roll in a Bowl is simple to prepare and makes a ton of food! An easy, healthy dinner and a huge volume meal.

I love Asian food. Absolutely love it.

This recipe for Egg Roll in a Bowl is one of my favorites for a couple reasons:

  • It only makes 4 servings
  • The bowls are huge.

This is a recipe we make at least once or twice a month. It’s fairly cheap to make and easily customizable.

Is Egg Roll in a Bowl low-carb?

If you leave out the rice, this recipe is indeed lower in carbs. The vegetables will add a few, but not many.

Cauliflower rice is a good option if you still want a rice-y feel but fewer carbs.

Is this recipe low-calorie?

If you just make the meat and cabbage mixture (Without the extra stir fry veggies and rice), it comes out to about 233 calories. That’s if you use ground turkey.

I consider that to be pretty low-calorie. My typical meals are between 400-500 calories, so do what you will with that.

How to make Egg Roll in a Bowl

Start by cooking a pound of ground turkey in a large pan.

You can drain it if you like. I used 93/7 ground turkey so I really didn’t have much to drain.

Cook rice (If using), using your preferred method. I use a rice cooker, which really saves effort on my part!

Note: Brown rice typically takes longer to cook. Usually 75 minutes as opposed to about 35 with white rice.

Add the coleslaw mix and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

You don’t want to cook this too long- otherwise the cabbage will get a little too soft for my tastes.

Add the soy sauce, garlic, and ginger, and stir to combine.

If you want to add some extra vegetables, do so at this point.

I love bags of stir-fry veggies because they’re so convenient to just heat up and add to my food!

Divide into 4 dishes and serve!

I added some peanuts on top of mine for extra fat and flavor- it really adds an extra crunch!

Sound & looks yummy! Can I substitute garlic powder vs garlic cloves? If you know, what is the amount how much . Please.

I think 1 teaspoon of garlic powder would be fine!

Jamie!! I’m super excited to try this recipe. I’m vegan so I’ll be using Trader Joe’s Beef-less ground.... which I never usually buy. But it just so happens that I did one time... a very long time ago ?‍♀️. It’s been in my freezer for a while and this is exactly why I don’t usually buy it!! Then I end saying to myself... now what the heck am I gonna do with this stuff? ? And look it here! I was SO excited to watch you making this live today! I knew right away that I needed to try this!! Because it is vegan minus the beef. I probably also use cauliflower rice or perhaps another grain. THANK YOU SOO MUCH for this SUPER DUPER recipe! Can’t wait to try it out! P.s I just adore watching you!! I love all of the variation and types of videos you do!! You truly brighten my day, you’re so calming.
