In trying to avoid the dreaded carbs, we sometimes have to sacrifice some of our favorite dishes. Well…that’s just sad!

While we still sometimes (often) throw caution to the wind and dive into the bread/pasta/rice bowl (pick your poison), our belles ring like crazy when we find a way to enjoy a dish guilt free. 

Enter the unrolled egg roll…

Egg Roll in a Bowl from Simple Roots Wellness


Egg Roll in a Bowl…the Belle version…

1 lb ground sausage (or other meat…we used white meat chicken)

1 carrot, shredded

1 small onion, finely chopped

5 cloves garlic, minced

1 pkg mushrooms, finely chopped (we used baby portobello)

2 T olive oil

1 T sesame oil

1 pkg “angel hair” cabbage (we used Fresh Express)

1/2 c Tamari (or soy sauce)

1 t minced ginger

Sliced green onions

Sesame seeds

Drizzle olive oil in sauté pan.  Begin sautéing onion, carrot, and garlic.  Brown for 1-2 minutes.  Add ground chicken/other meat.  Stir/chop to break apart as the meat and veggies cook.  Remove mixture from pan.  Add second tablespoon of oil to pan and sauté mushrooms.  When mushrooms are browned and thoroughly cooked (3-4 minutes), return meat mixture to pan.  Add sesame oil, cabbage, the Tamari, ginger, and green onions.  Stir to incorporate.  Allow to cook down until cabbage wilts.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.  

Serve in a bowl…or use lettuce leaves as a wrapper.  Delish!!
