This bowlis healthier and easier to make than the actual egg rolls, which means less time cooking and more time eating! And on that note, I will cheers to that!
Now, more often than not, I find myself getting stuck in that rut of “what should I make for dinner”. Do you? If I were to take a guess, I bet it happens more often than not. The struggles comes from wanting it to be healthy, but still deliciously flavorful, not require a ton of effort and more importantly clean up at the end. I totally get it!
So, with that being said, you can wash all of those worries away because this Rainbow Egg Roll Bowl has come to the rescue! It is a quick, low carb meal that has all of the flavors of a traditional egg roll but requires half of the work. It is a one stop shop because the whole meal gets cooked in one pan! I know what you’re thinking...”UM. Excuse me? What?” And Yep! You definitely just read that right. One pan meal, easy, low carb, minimal clean up and still extremely tasty! I love all of those things and for that reason I will forever love one pan meals, they get me through all of my weeks.
About the Dish:
This dish came about because I currently have a Filipino Egg Roll (Lumpia Shanghai) recipe that has been in our family for many years. I shared it in a previous post on my site because I love it so much, I love sharing my culture and I wanted to show you that they are easier to make then you might think. However, I completely understand how they can be intimidating to make, especially if you’ve never made them. The process of rolling and wrapping, the oil and the clean up can all be a lot to take in.
In addition, it is also the start of a brand new year and healthy is in. It is always in and always trending, but I wanted to take a recipe that I know people love, but are potentially intimidated by and make things easier and healthier! So, here we are.
With that being said, to make things a bit easier and healthier, I turned my traditional Filipino egg roll recipe into a rainbow egg roll bowl! No rolling and wrapping, no oil and less clean up! I took all of the same ingredients from my traditional Filipino egg roll recipe and added a few extra vegetables (because you can never have too many vegetables, am I right!?) and created this Rainbow Egg Roll bowl stir fry. Enjoy this as is, in a lettuce cup or with some white rice.

Being healthy never tasted or looked so good. A low carb, colorful dish that is vegetable heavy with protein and a savory flavorful sauce, this Rainbow Egg Roll Bowl is the new way to roll. It is my traditional Filipino Egg Roll deconstructed.
