20-Minute Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl

PureWow Editors

What’s an egg roll in a bowl? It’s the saucy, savory interior of your favorite Chinese takeout finger food, minus the outer shell. While this recipe calls for ground pork, you could substitute ground turkey or chicken without issue. And to make the bowls gluten-free, use tamari instead of soy sauce. Either way, it’s paleo-diet friendly and ready in just 20 minutes. Win-win.
