Eggrolls are definitely a favorite of ours, however since our focus turned towards health, they were quickly moved to our No list.
Once we found this recipe “eggrolls” now… Eggroll in a Bowl…is back in our diet at least once a month!
The recipe is extremely easy and versatile! Typically we add in whatever additional veggies we have in the house. Spinach is a staple in our home so we always add in a few handfuls.* Our favorites vegetables to use are sliced snap peas, regular peas, green beans or broccoli.
As the recipe mentions you can add in any protein to make the dish more filling. Our favorites are sautéed chicken or sliced steak served atop the eggroll in a bowl.
This meal additionally is one of those meals where you will want to make a double or triple batch. It is like lasagna and is most certainly almost better the next day and you will already be cutting and prepping, so take an extra 10 minutes to prep a bit more and make a few extra meals!
When we reheat leftovers, we only do so via the stove or oven (because Microwaves destroy the natural nutrients found in food), this meals especially is best reheated on the stove with very little butter! This allows the cabbage to crisp up and we love the new flavor it adds to the dish.
*This is a great way to consistently increase your daily intake of greens…when cooked you cannot taste the spinach at all. As a tip…if for some ridiculous reason your children do not like the size of the spinach even when it is cooked down (it SIGNIFICANTLY cooks down), dice it up before hand and it will be so small that it is just part of the meal rather than an obvious piece of spinach.
