  • 12 oz bean sprouts
  • 1 small head Chinese cabbage (savoy, nappa, or green cabbage all work too)
  • 5 scallions thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots peeled and julienne
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup gluten free tamari or shoyu
  • 3 tbsp refined coconut oil or canola oil
  • 1 pound ground or chopped chicken or pork
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup roasted cashews or peanuts chopped (garnish)


  • In a large bowl, combine bean sprouts, cabbage, scallions, carrots, salt, pepper, and tamari.
  • Heat oil over high heat in a large saute pan or wok. Add ground chicken and stir-fry 2 minutes until white. In a bowl, mix the eggs with a fork. Use a wooden spatula to stir the chicken to the side to make room for the egg. Pour into the pan and cook the egg for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in half the cabbage mixture. Cook to reduce for 3 minutes. Add the remaining cabbage and saute for 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve the egg roll mixture hot with crunchy roasted nuts sprinkled on top.


Wanton Topping

You may want to slice wanton wrappers and deep fry a few. Then use the strips to garnish the bowls.

Easy Duck Sauce

2 Tablespoons apricot jam with 1 teaspoon rice vinegar. Taste and add more jam or vinegar until it's pleasantly sweet and sour. You may also use a little sriracha for a spicy flavor. Spoon over the top of the egg roll bowls.
