Friday Food: Egg Roll in a Bowl

We tried a version of this at our house and while nothing quite beats the crunch of a good egg roll this one was a lot more guilt free.  All the great flavoring of an egg roll without the deep frying of the shell that can throw your nutrition off.  Give it a shot and customize it to how you prefer your favorite egg roll.


  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 5 green onions, sliced on a bias (white and green parts)
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha, more to taste.
  • 14 oz bag coleslaw mix
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

The Game Plan: 

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Add the garlic, onion, and white portion of the green onions.  Sautés until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Add the ground pork, ground ginger, sea salt, black pepper and Sriracha.  Sautés until the pork is cooked through.
  4. Add the coleslaw mix, coconut aminos, and rice wine vinegar.  Sautés until the coleslaw is tender.
  5. Top with green onions and sesame seeds before serving.
