    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!

    You have so much advertisement on your blog it’s hard to find the content. Is it suppose to look like that? Yikes!

      Hi, thank you for reaching out. We provide entirely free recipes and other free resources to everyone that comes here.

Thanks for understanding!

  • Mimi Clark says:

    This dish sounds delish! Right up my alley. I have everything but the cole slaw but Giant is right around the corner.
    Really liked your blog regarding therapy and group therapy. Nice job!

    • Julie says:

      Thanks so much, Mimi! :)

  • Connie says:

    What is a good substitute for Chinese cooking wine?

    • Julie says:

      Do you have mirin?

  • gregory anderson says:

    Your recipes are delightful, even just to read. my wife and I are thankful you provide us such tasty fare.

    Keep up the good work.
    May the forks be with you.

    • Julie says:

      Aww thank you! :)

  • Jessica D says:

    This sounds delicious. So happy to have the macros as well! Going to try this with my next farmer’s market haul. :)

    • Julie says:

      Great! :)

  • Erin says:

    This looks soooo delicious. Question: how would you vegetarian-ise this? Tofu is the obvious choice as a meat substitute just wanted to know if you would personally sub something else like more veggies?

    Love your blog and recipes x

    • Julie says:

      I would just cut out the meat and add in tofu, like you said. I can’t think of any other protein to sub in! Definitely add more veggies if you want. Shredded brussels sprouts, leeks, maybe some riced cauliflower too!

  • Monica Tuite says:

    Julie, this is SOOOO good! Comfort food in the heat of the Midwest summer! Had cabbage from our CSA and used Belgian endive when couldn’t get baby Bok Choy. The cabbage and Bok Choy/ endive made it feel light and healthy— also great texture! Did not have Chinese cooking wine—your suggestion to use Mirin was spot on! My husband & I love you! This ‘deconstructed’egg roll was as much fun to make as it was to eat! 5 STARS— YUM! Thank YOU!

    • Julie says:

      Ahh love hearing this!!! Thanks for letting me know!!!

  • Cortney says:

    This recipe is delicious! I served it over cauliflower rice that I sautéed with sesame oil and soy sauce, then garnished with sesame seeds, green onion, and sriracha. I just discovered your website and look forward to trying more of your recipes! Thanks!

    • Julie says:

      Love your own twist to this!

  • Gina Pidoto says:

    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 ?

    • Julie says:

      Looking forward to hearing what you think!!

  • Linda Wyatt says:

    Could I use ground chicken or beef? My family does not eat pork. Thanks!

    • Julie Wampler says:

      Yep, definitely.

  • Jasmine says:

    This was the ideal meal. Nothing else to say. Mic drop.

  • Tracey says:

    This is the first recipe from Julie that I’ve tried and OMG amazing! Definitely adding this one to the rotation.
