It’s a very versatile recipe that if you don’t enjoy an ingredient, you can simply replace it. For example, you can replace ground pork for ground beef or ground turkey.

Which ingredients you need to make this Low-carb Egg Roll in a Bowl with Sautéed Kale:
- GroundPork: You can use a lean ground turkey to make this recipe even healthier if you prefer.
- Red onions: For extra flavour! Love onions, but if you don’t, you can totally remove it.
- Cabbage Slaw: I used a mix bag that contains cabbage, broccoli and carrot.
- Ginger, garlic and green onions: All these goodies are making me hungry.
- Bragg Liquid Aminos: I use this brand because it’s an alternative to soy sauce and it’s very low carb, which has 0.6 grams net carbs in 1 tablespoon. However, you can use coconut aminos if you want to make this recipe whole30 or paleo friendly
Tips to make this delicious low-carb meal-prep recipe:
- To make meal-prep less time consuming, I would suggest you to buy pre-chopped coleslaw and cruciferous veggies mixes. I always buy slaw bags because all the work is done for me, and I just need to sauté the veggies in the skillet. Super easy! Want to make your own? Try my Super Easy Broccoli Kale Slaw Salad.
- Make sure to not add salt in the egg roll mix because the Liquid Aminos is a bit salty.
- Ginger and sesame oil help to bring all the Asian flavour to this dish, but if you don’t have these two ingredients, you can still make this recipe. Just skip the ginger and use olive oil instead. The flavours will be different but it will be good.
- You also can totally make this recipe vegan, but replacing ground pork for scrambled tofu.
Please, if you try this recipe let me know what you think. Hope you enjoy it 😉
