Weeknight Egg Roll in a Bowl

*This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure here.  Thank you for your support!

Hi, friends!  We are almost to Friday! Woot, woot!  I don’t know what it is, but I feel like this week has been about 11 days long already.  It hasn’t been a bad week or anything, but every time I look at a clock I am like “how is it only _:__?”  Does that every happen to you? I think I must be ready for a long weekend.

In continuing with my super fast meal trend for the week, I wanted to share one of my favorite week night meals. I had seen various egg roll in a bowl meal ideas on Pinterest, and have since perfected my own spin on this dish.   This comes together in about 15 minutes and is a nice mix of protein and veggies.  If you have the time, using fresh garlic and ginger pump up the flavor even more.  I used dried seasonings in the recipe though, because I know I don’t always have time for chopping and prepping during the week.  I am guessing that lots of you are short on time during the week as well, so I thought this super fast version would be nice to have.

I love this dish as dinner on its own,  but will also sometimes serve it with rice and/or steamed veggies.  It is also super easy to customize.  You can use coconut aminos for Whole 30.  Extra veggies can be added.  I personally love spicy food, so I usually add a dash of sriracha to mine.


Weeknight Egg Roll in a Bowl

Serves 4


    • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    • 1 pound ground turkey (please feel free to use ground chicken, pork, etc if preferred)
    • 1 bag (1 lb) coleslaw mix (cabbage and carrots)
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
    • 3-4 tablespoons liquid aminos (soy sauce or coconut aminos would also work here)
    • 3 green onion stalks diced
    • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Directions: Heat sesame oil in a skillet using a medium-high heat.  Add ground turkey and season with powdered onion, garlic, and ginger.  Once meat is browned, add in coleslaw mix, liquid aminos, about 3/4 of the green onions and the chili garlic sauce.  Cook for another 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently until veggies have softened.  Sprinkle with remaining green onions and sesame seeds and serve.


Let me know if you give it a try!  I would love to see your versions on Instagram, so be sure to post a picture and tag me if you make it.

Hope you have a great day!

  1. I love egg rolls when I order Chinese but have never heard of egg roll in a bowl though. This is definitely healthier (and cheaper!) than ordering egg rolls. I’ll have to try this out. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. This is 100% my kind of recipe! My husband makes fun of me for only eating out of bowls lol, but I love meals like this where all of the flavors / textures mix together. I’m working on my meal plan for next month and am definitely including this!
