In my lively home, where I juggle the roles of both mom and dad most days for my four wonderful daughters, dinnertime is a cherished time of day. Finding meals that are not only speedy to make but also a hit with my girls has always been my mission. That’s how our beloved Quick and Zesty Egg Roll Bowl came to life.
One day, I reminisced about our favorite takeout egg rolls, and the desire to bring those flavors into our home led me to create a homemade version. After a bit of experimentation, I crafted a simplified, homemade delight that we soon came to adore.
My daughters loved the delicious food and enjoyed personalizing their bowls with soy sauce, sesame seeds, or sriracha. Our “Quick and Zesty Egg Roll Bowl” quickly became a family favorite. We laughed and shared stories at the dinner table while enjoying it.
For a less spicy option, switch out sriracha with smoked paprika in the This simple modification ensures that everyone at our table can enjoy the delightful flavors, no matter their heat tolerance.
Savor the Flavor: Quick and Zesty Egg Roll Bowl

- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon of aromatic sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons of freshly sliced green onions

- Blend in the pre-shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix, add the soy sauce, and sprinkle the ground ginger into the skillet. Sauté the mixture until the cabbage reaches the desired level of tenderness. If you find the need, a touch of water can be added to keep things moving smoothly.
