Sharing is caring!

This Gluten Free Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe could not be any simpler… or delicious. It packs a lot of veggies and a lot of flavor, too!

I think it’s helpful to have a few recipes that can be staples in the meal rotation. Recipes that you have ingredients on hand for and can be made quickly.

This egg roll in a bowl is that kind of recipe for me. Another reason I love it so much is because it makes some insane leftovers… and when I cook a meal I always cook with the intention of leftovers so I have lunch the next day.

What ingredients do you need for Egg Roll in a Bowl?

  • Ground Pork (you can also use ground beef or ground turkey)
  • Avocado Oil
  • Pepper
  • Minced ginger and garlic
  • Mushrooms
  • Sesame Oil
  • Coconut Aminos

Ground turkey, mushrooms, coleslaw, ginger and garlic

This recipe is so simple. You cannot mess it up. I promise.

I don’t like recipes that require me to give it my undivided attention while making it because honestly, with 3 kids around it’s unlikely I get to cook dinner without being pulled in a million directions during the process!

How do you make Egg Roll in a Bowl?

  • Heat avocado oil in skillet and add ginger and garlic. Sauté until fragrant.
  • Add ground pork, sprinkle with pepper and add in cleaned mushrooms.
  • Cook until pork is brown and nearly crispy and almost all the liquid is evaporated. The mushrooms add a bit of water to the skillet, this will evaporate the longer you cook it.
  • While pork is cooking, combine the coconut aminos, sesame oil and rice vinegar and set aside.
  • Once pork is cooked, add the bagged coleslaw and pour the prepared sauce over top.
  • Sauté until the coleslaw becomes tender, only a few minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve with the spicy mayo drizzle if desired.

*I use ground pork from Butcher Box, it’s where we buy most of our meat and it is excellent quality, humanely raised and most of it is organic.

I added a delicious sauce you can drizzle on top of this, but it doesn’t need it so if sauces aren’t your thing… you can skip it. If you want a little extra kick, give it a try! It’s yummy!

Combine all ingredients below in a bowl while the egg roll in a bowl is cooking on the skillet and it will be ready to go once dinner is done!

I use a whisk to combine this and use until smooth. It will start out a little clumpy, that’s normal, just keep stirring.

The spicy mayo drizzle only needs a few ingredients to make it a delicious addition!

  • Primal Kitchen Mayo (you can use regular mayo if you’d like, we just use this one)
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Hot Sauce (I used Siete brand hot sauce)
  • Lime
  • Coconut Aminos
  • Sesame Oil

Why doesn’t this recipe not have eggs in it?

Want to know a secret? I had to google this! I honestly did not know and figured that someone else was bound to have this questions.

From what I could find, the egg in “Egg Rolls” is from the wrapper of egg rolls, not the filling. So, that’s why the egg roll in a bowl doesn’t have eggs because it is without the wrapper!

Is Egg Roll in a Bowl gluten free?

This recipe is gluten free because I replaced traditional soy sauce with coconut aminos. My family actually prefers coconut aminos so this has been an easy switch for us to make as a family!

I eat a gluten free diet because of Hashimoto’s.

Enjoy this tasty, simple and nutritious recipe!
