Egg Roll in a Bowl

Rule #156: It’s amazing how far just a few ingredients can get you.

This recipe is a winner on all fronts. It’s low carb, easy to make, takes just minute to make, and is crazy delicious!

This recipe is similar to the Weight Watchers Egg Roll in a Bowl, but with a few twists!

Then, add in some minced garlic and grated ginger. The easiest way to use/store ginger is: peel the fresh ginger with a vegetable peeler, put in a Ziploc bag in the freezer, then pull out and grate with a microplane grater straight into whatever dish you’re cooking. Makes it super easy!

Next, we’ll add in our “egg roll filling” if you will. I use a 14-oz. bag of Classic Coleslaw mix which is just shredded cabbage and carrots. You can also use only cabbage or sub something like zucchini noodles if you’d like.
