Are you craving egg rolls but don’t want to order take out? This egg roll in a bowl recipe will satisfy your take-out craving without all the salt! Plus, it is a great way to sneak in some tasty veggies!
Why Egg Roll in a Bowl?
This recipe is the perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner! The whole meal comes together in about 30 minutes. Plus, it is a much healthier version of take-out egg rolls.
Of course, egg rolls are traditionally fried. Which adds quite a few extra calories and unhealthy fat. This egg roll in a bowl recipe has all the great flavor of traditional egg rolls without the fried shell. You will still get some satisfying crunch from the crispy wontons on top!
Lower Sodium Egg Roll
Take-out egg rolls are usually packed with sodium. One egg roll has about 550mg of sodium, or, about a quarter of the sodium you should have for an entire day! This egg roll in a bowl recipe has about half the sodium of take-out egg rolls. Plus, this recipe can be your entire meal! I don’t know about you, but I certainly would not be full after just one egg roll!
This recipe is packed with flavor from fresh ginger, garlic, lime juice and green onion. Rather than getting flavor from salt and a ton of soy sauce.
Want to make this recipe even lower in sodium? Swap out the low sodium soy sauce for coconut aminos*!
Vegetarian Egg Roll in a Bowl
This egg roll in a bowl can easily be made vegetarian. Simply swap out the chicken for an extra 8oz of mushrooms. Or, substitute tofu for the ground chicken.
I like to serve this egg roll in a bowl over rice. It is also delicious over some rice or other type of Asian noodles. Or, if you are wanting to limit carbs, this recipe is tasty as is.
