I LOVE Chinese food!! Before going low carb, I would hit up the Chinese buffet; sometimes twice in one week! I could have probably eat it every day if money were no object. One of the items I loved the most was egg rolls. What if we could have the egg rolls without the won ton wrapper? Enter Egg Roll In a Bowl!
I want to make it clear that I did not invent this recipe, unfortunately. I have seen quite a few renditions. I followed a recipe for this dish, once, but then modified it to my liking. The one I followed used the bagged cole slaw mix. I generally shy away from this because, A. It’s more expensive and B. It never seems to be fresh enough. I would rather do a little extra work and get better results.
I know that adding an egg to egg roll isn’t generally done. The original purpose was to add a bit more protein and because I love egg in fried rice. This was my way to fuse the two.
This recipe is both economic, low carb and damn tasty! I love when I make a meal that I look forward to eating left over 🙂
