Egg Roll in a Bowl (Gluten Free)

Y’ALL. This recipe is a game changer for me! I love Asian food; Chinese, Japanese, you name it, it’s my favorite food. However, when I went gluten free I felt like I lost the opportunity to just go to the Chinese restaurant and get what I want. So I had to learn how to make it at home (which those recipes will come soon). However, I have yet to attempt a gluten free egg roll because… how? So! This recipe is perfect for a gluten free, low carb lunch that reminds you of those delicious egg rolls (that sometimes are just a tad too greasy)! It’s also super easy and customizable to whatever your taste is! I found this recipe and made it my own and I’m so excited to share it with you. Let’s get to it!

Egg Roll in a Bowl

What you will need:

  • 1 lbs ground meat (beef, pork, or chicken) (my favorite is chicken)
  • 1 package of slaw mix
  • 2 stalks of celery (diced)
  • 5 stalks of green onion (3 diced for mixture, 2 for topping)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (Gluten Free)
  • 1 tbsp red chili paste or siracha (add more or less depending on your spice level)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • sesame seeds (for topping, optional)

Dry Seasonings:

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ginger (dried or sub 1 tbsp fresh ginger)
  • 1/4 tsp allspice (optional but super delicious)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


In a soup pan or deep sauté pan, heat sesame and vegetable oil to medium-high heat. Toss in diced celery, green onion, and minced garlic and stir. Then toss in minced meat of choice, chopping up finely with spatula to make it very fine. Once the meat is mostly cooked, add in slaw mix and stir. Then add the following: soy sauce, red chili paste, honey, rice wine vinegar, and all dry seasonings. Stir well and cook until the cabbage in the slaw mix is cooked down and softened! When done, put in a bowl and top with dice green onions and sesame seeds! 

Total cook time takes about 25 minutes of prep and cooking! It’s so fast and easy, and most importantly super delicious.
