What is Egg Roll In A Bowl?
This enriching bowl recipe is a nutritional powerhouse. And guess what?? Unlike traditional Chinese eggrolls, these eggrolls are NOT deep fried. You will love that they are easier on waist line and enjoy them guilt-free!
BETTER THAN TRADITIONAL FRIED EGGROLLS
Raise your hands if you often order Egg-rolls when you eat Chinese food. I am raising mine very high 🙂 One of the main attractions of eating Chinese food on lunch menu is the egg-rolls. I sneakily also like the “included with entrée part” :))
However, often these egg-rolls are pre made and deep fried. So I settle for eating only one. Then if I crave more , I have to remind myself that it’s deep fried and then the whole guilt part kicks in. So I move on to next entrée.
But I LIKE egg rolls and I want to enjoy them without worrying about counting calories. This recipe provides a perfect solution to this dilemma.
Better than Take Out
This wholesome recipe is packed with umami Asian flavors. It is one pot wonder meal too. One giant bowl of happiness minus the empty calories. This colorful healthy recipe is made with tofu, fresh vegetables, and a flavorful savory sauce. It makes a perfect quick and hearty weeknight dinner.
Simple ingredients, superb flavors , low carbs and easy preparation – this recipe of also mimics the traditional Crack Slaw Recipe. I have a feeling it’s going to be one of your favorite recipe from our blog. It sure is in our home.
You can easily adapt this recipe to your preference. I am making it Glutenfree and vegan. Omnivores won’t miss the meat since I am adding mushrooms and tofu for the meaty texture.

This Keto Crack Slaw is fast and the leftovers are delicious. The step by step directions are provided in the recipe card. The Pictorial instructions are below.
We start off with colorful mixture of cabbage ( green and purple) and carrots. We add mushrooms for the meaty texture and giant umami flavors. For the perfect plant protein, we also add pressed and cubed tofu in these bowls.
The sauce is flavor packed and tantalizing. It’s bold but doesn’t burn your tongue. You can feel several different flavor notes. There is tanginess of rice vinegar and liquid coconut amino. The ginger and garlic round up the bold and dashing flavor. The sesame seed oil gives a nice nutty flavor to this wonderful.
How long does this low carb egg roll in a bowl last for?
You can store this in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Can you freeze this Vegan egg roll bowls?
No. I don’t recommend freezing it. Cabbage get very mushy and smells very unappetizing after you thaw it.
How Do you serve Vegan Keto egg roll bowl ?
Warm or cold both works. I prefer it warm. If you eat it as a salad, a room temperature serving works perfect.
- Sesame Oil: I am using two types of sesame oils. Raw or clear sesame oil for sautéing and toasted sesame oil for drizzle at the end. Cooking with toasted sesame oil makes the oil bitter. It adds an amazing flavor if you drizzle it on top.
- Cabbage reduces substantially in volume when it’s cooked. So plan and cook accordingly. One medium head of cabbage yields about 5-6 cooked cups.
- You can buy and use pre packed Cole slaw mix to save time on washing and cutting the cabbage and carrots. For a variation, broccoli slaw mix works well too.
- If you want to make this recipe soy free – skip the tofu. Double the amount of mushrooms for the flavors and texture.
- You can use tamari, soy sauce or liquid coconut amino depending on your taste and diet preferences. Choose organic version to avoid GMO exposure. I prefer low sodium too.
