Keto Egg Roll Bowls Recipe
Want a delicious egg roll but don’t want to fall out of ketosis? You’re in luck because this keto egg roll bowls recipe unpacks all the flavor of an egg roll and puts it in a handy bowl!
Making it Keto
You’ll notice these egg rolls are in a bowl, not a wrapper. That’s quite deliberate because “regular” wonton or egg roll wrappers are basically all-purpose flour. And carbs. Not a good way to kick off a meal on a keto diet.
But losing the roll doesn’t mean losing the flavor. Most of what makes an egg roll an egg roll is the flavorful filling – and there’s no reason we can’t create that same goodness for the keto crowd.
Many homemade egg rolls, and just about all restaurant egg rolls, contain some sugar. That’s not necessary and it’s detrimental to your keto diet, so I just left it out.
Another adaptation I made was to use tamari sauce instead of soy sauce, which often contains a lot of gluten.
