What the heck’s an egg roll in a bowl?
It sounds exactly what it is. It’s a stir fried egg roll filling without the wrapper, served in a bowl on it’s own or with rice! My recipe is vegan by using a healthier plant based meat alternative instead of ground pork, beef, turkey or chicken.
Warning it’s highly addictive for everyone! hence its name ‘crack slaw’ also referred to as an ‘inside out egg roll’ or ‘unstuffed egg roll’ So many names!!😳 And you get a good serving of veggies too!
Ok guys I’ve been making egg rolls for years and they usually consisted of pork, vegetables (sometimes mushrooms) and sauce rolled in filo pastry. I still make then but minus the meat and guess what you won’t miss it! Especially with all the good vegetarian meatless options now!
-and today we’re having a twist on that with my ultra easy deconstructed egg roll recipe. I used beyond beefless ground to replace the pork and the rest of the ingredients are the same, cabbage, water chestnuts, carrots, green onions, ginger, garlic and a quick sauce!
I don't cook with beyond products often but found the flavour and texture really worked and reminded me so much of the egg rolls I used to make. It was a real treat! Delish!
This recipe is brilliant for that umami hit of Chinese take out with minimal effort! And I usually serve the stir fry with a starch like rice or noodles. It’s great for meal prep and makes an excellent weeknight dinner! Your family will love it!
I have not tried this in an instant pot as it takes minutes on the stovetop.
How do you make vegan egg roll in a bowl?
First prep the vegetables and whisk the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Set them aside.
Add the 'meat' to a large non stick skillet and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes until fully cooked and a little crispy. Stir in the garlic, ginger and pepper. Cook until fragrant, about a minute.
Add the cabbage, carrots and water chestnuts. Fry for 3-4 minutes until the cabbage begins to wilt but still has a bite to it (crisp-tender)
Remove pan from the heat and stir in the green onions and sauce. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve as is or with rice and extra chili garlic sauce or sriracha for the table. Enjoy! For full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below.
Does egg roll filling freeze well?
The filling will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days and is suitable for freezing.
What can you serve with it?
I usually serve egg roll in a bowl with rice and extra hot sauce, but you could also serve with your choice of noodles, like chow mein, rice noodles or even udon or spaghetti noodles.
Enjoy guys! Happy day to you! feel free to leave a comment and a rating below. I would love to hear from you.
