Egg Roll in a Bowl

I came across this recipe through a friend on Instagram and knew I had to make it as soon as possible. Thanks @nutritionbynatalie and thanks for this great recipe @40aprons. I did take liberties with the original recipe which is (Whole30, Keto, Paleo and Low Carb Feel free to check out the recipe on 40aprons blog.

I am not a follower of any of those diets so I made it my way and next time would serve over rice!

The flavors were delicious and although there are a lot of different ingredients the recipe cooks up quickly and easily.

This should serve 4 people especially if you add rice.


2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil

6 green onions (scallions) green and white parts divided

5 cloves minced garlic

1 pound ground pork which I used but you can use beef, chicken , turkey or shrimp or tofu for a vegetarian dish

1 Teaspoon fresh ginger – grated

8 oz. can of water chestnuts chopped

1 Tablespoon Hot Sauce — I used Sriracha and you’ll need more for dressing

1 bag of ColeSlaw Mix — 14 oz. bag

3 Tablespoons Coconut Aminos or Light Tamari or Low Sodium Soy Sauce -I used Braggs Coconut Aminos

1/2 cup onion diced — I used red but you can use spanish onion

1 Tablespoon Hoisin Sauce

1 Tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar

Salt and Pepper to taste


1/4 cup Mayonnaise

1-2 Tablespoons Sriracha — I used 2

Pinch of Kosher Salt


In a large Frying Pan / Skillet heat sesame oil over medium heat

Add white parts on green onions, diced onion, and garlic and saute. Stir frequently while this cook and onion is completely softened and broken down for about 5 minutes

Add ground meat, grated ginger, water chestnuts, and Hoisin and 1 Tablespoon Sriracha. Cook until the meat is browned, broken up and cooked probably 10 minutes more.

Add Coleslaw mix, coconut aminos or soy sauce or tamari , rice wine vinegar, and taste for salt and pepper and add accordingly. Cook , stirring frequently until cabbage is tender — at least 5 more minutes.

In a small bowl whisk together 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1-2 Tablespoons of Sriracha, add a pinch of salt to taste. You’ll drizzle this sauce with a spoon over the egg roll in a bowl mixture.

Top with some green onions and if you like some brown rice would be delicious underneath all this .Or any rice you like .
