On a ketogenic diet rice paper wraps are a serious no-go zone, however you will soon forget about deep fried carbs once you taste “Egg Rolls in a bowl!”
Cruciferous vegetables are an essential part of a Ketogenic diet, so coming up with new ways to flavour your veggies will keep not only your taste buds satisfied, but the creative cook in you also.
Traditionally pork is used in egg rolls, however any meat or seafood can be used. We happened to have coriander & garlic lamb patties in the freezer at our place, so I have replaced pork with fattier lamb. Remembering the fattier the meat the better on keto. The patties were easy to pull apart into small chunks of meat
300 Grams of protein -the garlic and coriander lamb patties worked really well
1 full small green cabbage or half head of a larger cabbage – shredded in a food processor
1 medium brown onion
¾ cup chicken broth – I had bone broth in the freezer so used that.
¼ cup Liquid Aminos – I had ran out, so used Tamari
1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
3 stalks of Green onions thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons of sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic- minced
1 teaspoon of minced ginger
(Sesame Seeds Optional)
In a food processor, shred your cabbage and slice your brown onion.
Thinly slice your green onion.
Mince your garlic and ginger
Mix liquid aminos, minced garlic and ginger into a small bowl- put to the side
Brown your meat over a medium heat in a large non-stick pan or wok- no oil required.
Add sesame oil and brown onion to pan, add meat, mix together and continue to cook over medium heat.
Once onions are brown, pour in the liquid aminos mixture
Immediately add your shredded cabbage and continually toss until well mixed (using two large kitchen utensils works well to mix such large amounts of cabbage). You may like to lower the heat of your stove top here.
Once mixed, add broth, evenly sprinkle salt over the cabbage, continuous mixing until the liquid of the broth is evenly dispersed. Add the green onion last, practically raw ifs fine, again mix continuously until green onions are dispersed evenly throughout the cabbage.
If you are going to add sesame seeds add once all cooking is complete, tossing them through the cabbage.
And you are done- whether it breakfast lunch or dinner, you have a huge bowl of delicious keto approved food in your fridge that can last you for days.
