Before we get to talking about this eggroll bowl (or should I call it everything but the eggroll bowl, because it technically is, haha)…let’s talk about how I walked into Target with no intention of buying anything and walked out $200 poorer.

My friend was visiting me this weekend and she forgot her makeup bag at home so she asked that I take her to Target so she can grab some essentials.

Sure, no problem.

Except how did it end up being a shopping trip for me?! I’m not the only one this happens to, right?

What is in an eggroll bowl?

I have been hearing so many good things about this so-called eggroll in a bowl. Except it’s not really an eggroll in a bowl because there’s no wrapping that is actually in the bowl.

So it’s basically everything but the eggroll in a bowl. Does that make sense? Or am I totally going nuts over here?

I really do love this alternative to eggrolls. I do love me some fried goodness but the filling in eggrolls are actually my favorite part. I always wish they were able to stuff more in there.

I guess this eggroll in a bowl solves all my problems :)

I wonder if they’ll start selling this as a l0w-carb option at restaurants. It’d kind of be a brilliant idea. You know how they do bunless burgers? This could kind of be the same idea!

This is a great way to get your veggies in too. It’s LOADED with veggies and has a great amount of protein. The sauce that it’s tossed in is a light and flavorful sauce. I love the sesame oil in this because of how fragrant it is and it perfumes the entire dish with a toasty, nutty scent.

This would be a perfect side dish to accompany lettuce wraps or Korean tacos! Or you can eat it as an entree, like we did. Either way you have it; you will want to make this over and over again! It takes virtually no time to put it all together!

Can not wait to make this for my girlfriends, at our next gathering. Since there's no deep frying involved and it's salad like,I think it will be a hit. Thank you P.S I'll let you know ?
