If you love egg rolls, then you're going to love this healthy and easy version of Egg Roll in a Bowl that's also Weight Watchers friendly @ 0 WW points on the blue plan!
But as far as I'm concerned, egg rolls just aren't the same without plum sauce, so I add it. Even WITH the plum sauce and sesame seeds it's still only 3 WW points on blue. And trust me, it's sooo worth the extra points. It really tastes like you're eating an egg roll! Nor do you have to be on a Weight Watchers plan to love this WW Egg Roll in a Bowl. It's a quick, easy and healthy weeknight dish for the entire family.
Obviously, I didn't invent this dish. And I've seen a lot of renditions of it out there. However, I wanted to throw my version into the mix! It's different than others I have come across.
My Egg Roll in a Bowl is a healthy, easy and satisfying Weight Watchers friendly, one-pot meal. For this recipe, you'll need:
- ground turkey breast (you can substitute ground chicken breast)
- broccoli slaw (instead of plain coleslaw mix) * You can substitute plain coleslaw mix, but broccoli slaw is more flavorful and has more nutrients
- bean sprouts
- fresh mushrooms
- soy sauce
- fresh ginger (don't use ground ginger spice, unless you are desperate! See my tip below on keeping ginger fresh)
- green onions (you can substitute red or white, but green is ideal because they are milder)
- plum sauce (optional)
- sesame seeds (optional)
This deconstructed egg roll is both low-carb and dairy free! You can also make it gluten-free by using a gluten-free soy sauce and gluten-free plum sauce. This dish tastes like an inside out egg roll. It has all the delicious flavors of your favorite deep-fried Chinese restaurant appetizer, but comes together in a lighter, faster and healthier one-pan dinner that’s ready in about 20 minutes. I made some brown rice to go with it for the family, but it's purely optional. And you could also serve it with cauliflower rice.
🌶️🌶️ Can I make this spicy?
YES! If you want it a little spicier, without adding points, just add sriracha sauce. However, you'll need to keep that to 1 teaspoon, as anything over and above 1 teaspoon is 1 WW point.
💭 Do egg rolls have eggs in them?
A traditional egg roll does not have egg in it but gets its name from the egg in the egg roll wrapper. But seriously, you won't even miss the wrapper! And although I love eggs, I don't add them to my recipe (as some do) because this dish has enough protein it it. Plus, I already get enough eggs, given I eat them for breakfast on a daily basis. And if you're following WW, you probably get enough eggs too!
💭 Top tip
Store your fresh ginger in the freezer! This recipe uses fresh ginger and ginger is usually a real pain to store because it goes bad so fast. I store my ginger in the freezer in a small freezer bag, pull it out and peel it with a carrot peeler, then grate it right into my food. It lasts several months in the freezer and this hack saves you both time and money!
This recipe can be made a day ahead and can be stored for up to 2 days in the fridge.
