Egg Roll Bowl

Pass on the takeout in favor of your own homemade Egg Roll Bowl! This simple, healthy and easy-to-make recipe is a must add for your dinner list as it takes less than 30 minutes to make and uses few ingredients. Not to mention, everyone in your household will be eager to try a taste; the aroma from the ingredients will bring everyone to the kitchen!

One thing I love about this recipe (besides the delicious taste) is how colorful it is. The carrots, red cabbage from the coleslaw mix, cilantro, and green onions give it a lot of color pop. When you are cooking the egg roll bowl, it’s clear that it’s made with fresh and nutrient dense foods.

This recipe is also very versatile depending on your diet needs. For instance, if you are looking to add more carbohydrates to your meal, simply serve this on top of brown rice. Needing a little more protein and fat? You can easily fry an egg and add it to your bowl!
