More About This Recipe

  • If I could eat egg rolls every day for the rest of my life, I would. Except for that pesky part about life where I am attempting to eat more of the stuff my body needs (veggies and protein) and less of the stuff it doesn’t (all-fried everything). It’s that whole “being well balanced” goal I keep setting for myself.So, imagine my delight to discover the concept of a “deconstructed” egg roll bowl. All of the best parts of an egg roll, tossed with all the best parts of a salad, served with just a sprinkling of crunchy fried egg roll strips. Because, balance.This dish comes together quick. A quick cook of ground turkey, sautéed with garlic, ginger and soy. Fresh carrots, purple cabbage and cilantro on top. A drizzle of sweet and sour dressing. A crumble of crushed peanuts. This dinner is perfection.Everything you’re craving, from noodles to greens, topped with crispy fried wontons and served with a fork (or chopsticks, if you please). Delicious!
