turn my nose up at egg rolls … I mean, seriously, it was a fried, greasy
‘thing’ filled with icky cabbage, carrots and protein. Oh, wait, are there eggs
in there? I honestly don’t know because I can count on one hand the number of
egg rolls I have consciously consumed in my lifetime.
A FAN of them … I supposed because I’ve always had an overly fried,
borderline cold egg roll that I’ve just not been drawn to them.
THIS recipe appeals to me in so many ways:
loaded with veggies which is always a good thing
grain and dairy free
knock off, make it yourself Chinese food
frugal to make
fast and easy
fits in with MY Whole30 plan (when I’m on!)
Scored on 7 of 7 points … I’m in!
what you need:
clove of garlic, smashed and chopped
avocado oil (coconut
or olive oil will work as well)
coconut aminos (or, if
desired, you can use gluten free soy but I avoid soy)
onions, sliced thin
you are not opposed to soy or gluten, by all means, use regular soy sauce.
However, IF you are doing a Whole30, soy sauce would be a no no.
avocado oil in large skillet and add your cabbage & broccoli mix if using, with onion and garlic and saute til soft.
coconut aminos and sesame oil and saute a little longer til the veggies absorb
some of the liquid. TIP: just measure the liquids you need in the same measuring glass so they are on standby and ready to work when you are!
protein of choice and cook til heated through
green onions and serve up …. enjoy!
NOTE: The first time I added shrimp. It was ‘ok’ but the shrimp were too big so cut them down small if using. The next time look to pulled pork … that would be EXCELLENT in this dish! But no, I did a vegetarian dish this time around.
*So, I’ve made this a few times with various revisions because this recipe just screams at you to do that! Add a bag of broccoli slaw and double the oil and coconut aminos/soy sauce. OR … do like I accidently did during meal prep: grab the bottle of GARLIC SAUCE instead of coconut aminos and skip right on past the sesame oil and all it a day. THIS IS THE WAY I WILL MAKE IT FROM HERE ON OUT … until I run out of that particular sauce. I mean, seriously, look at these two bottles … if you were grooving out during your meal prep party, would you not grab the slightly larger bottle thinking it was A-OK?
