My Egg Roll in a Bowl
Updated: Nov 21, 2018
Some of you may only follow my @BrittonsArtStudio Instagram but I have a second account: @So.Lo_In_Carb.onite -- yes, a Star Wars play. On SoLo in Carbonite, I post my meals I make for Jeremy and I, and now I'm including my 8 month old's foods! For Jeremy, my meals are gluten free (he's allergic), onion, garlic, cauliflower, and mushroom free because they irritate his gastro.
I have no allergens or irritants so I could make all these foods for myself, and sometimes I do! But a lot of times it's easier for me to just make one meal we can both eat. This is one of those! I would normally have added garlic or onions, but didn't and it's still great -- feel free to add those!
I eat a diet of low carb and high fat foods that many people refer to as keto, or ketogenic. I like to add the word "nutritional" in there because so many people think I only eat meat and cheese... Not the case here! My goal is to fill my plate 3/4ths full of nutritional, non-starchy, low carb vegetables and 1/4th with meat.
This recipe is:
✔ sugar free ✔ low carb ✔ grain & gluten free ✔ dairy free
We had it in celebration of New Years Day for prosperity along with blackeyed peas, for luck! Aren't traditions funny!
Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. It is also a very good source of manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin B1, folate, and copper. Additionally, cabbage is a good source of choline, phosphorus, vitamin B2, magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, pantothenic acid, protein, and niacin. -- From WorldsHealthiestFoods.com
This meal is very low carb, 3.2 grams of net carbs for a whole cup! You can use any ground meat; I used ground sausage. Fresh lemon juice cuts through all the savory flavors and a drizzle of Sriracha turns up the heat. Get the egg roll flavors without the deep fried flour shell.
What you'll need:
1/2 a lemon's juice
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of chopped ginger
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
3 tablespoons of liquid aminos, soy sauce works as well
1 tablespoon of fish sauce
1 packet of Stevia, or sweetener of choice
1 pound of ground sausage
1 large head of cabbage
Brown and cook your sausage first and remove from pan, save the drippings. Chop up your head of cabbage, I like mine in finger-length ribbons. Drizzle olive oil and sesame oil into the same hot pan with the sausage drippings. Add your cabbage and keep on medium high stirring every so often so all the cabbage cooks.
Making sure that the bottom doesn't burn, scoop from the bottom up and slightly scrape the pan.
Add the liquid aminos, fish sauce, ginger, and Stevia and continue to cook. When most of the cabbage is translucent, add the lemon juice and sesame seeds. Now you'll add the sausage to reheat.
Here's where you can add Sriracha, more liquid aminos, or seasonings to taste. I've also added a scrambled egg at this point and it was awesome, forgot it last night for our New Years dinner. Wait till the very end to added your cooked egg because your egg can get soggy or mushy.
