Egg Roll in a Bowl-(low-carb, grain-free)

Enjoy this easy, weeknight dinner for all the family! Keto-friendly, Dairy-Free and Grain-free…this is a great alternative to get a filling egg-roll flavor without the flour wrapper.

Roll out that egg roll history…

According to author Andrew Coe, who wrote “Chop Suey: A Cultural History of Chinese Food in the United States,” the egg roll was likely invented in New York sometime in the early 1930s. One of the chefs who claimed the honor, Henry Low, even included an egg roll recipe in his 1938 book “Cook at Home in Chinese.” According to Coe, the recipe included “bamboo shoots, roast pork, shrimp, scallions, water chestnuts, salt, MSG, sugar and pepper,” a much more luxurious mix than the “cabbage, flecked with bits of pork and carrot for color,” that “rose to dominate the restaurant tables and freezer sections.” With this recipe, many of those luxurious fillings have been restored — and I encourage home cooks to add just about anything they want as long as it’s chopped small, fully cooked and drained of most moisture.
