Instant Pot Egg Roll In A Bowl
Welcome to my instant pot egg roll in a bowl recipe. I must admit, until recently I had never heard of an egg roll in a bowl and certainly hadn’t tried it.
One of my blogger friends Sara has lost over 100 pounds on Weight Watchers and gave me the chance to review her Instant Pot Weight Loss Course.
Sara also put up with all my annoying messages asking more about Weight Watchers because even though I love the WW diet and have lots of the books I can’t get the app where I live.
It was a great course and I loved every minute of reading it and among the many recipes featured in the weight loss course was Instant Pot Egg Roll In A Bowl.
Now that got my attention and I thought “must make instant pot egg roll in a bowl asap”.
Firstly, I got Dominic to make me it in the frying pan first to see what all the fuss was and on a cold winter day we had some for lunch.
Perfect for our diet and for filling us up without having that I have eaten too many carbs feeling.
Totally hooked we ate a Weight Watchers egg roll in a bowl every day for lunch for about two weeks and it has now become our favourite lunch on busy days when we don’t have the energy to cook.
If you do get chance head over and check out Sara’s Instant Pot Weight Loss Course and her WW Toolkit (that is pure gold) and see the mass amount of WW instant pot ideas she has that I have fallen in love with.
What Is Egg Roll In A Bowl?
There are so many different names for egg roll in a bowl. If I didn’t know it as egg roll in a bowl, I would be calling it deconstructed egg roll, or inside out egg roll.
Egg roll in a bowl is simply the inside of an egg roll served in a bowl in a similar way to a stir fry.
It will have delicious ground meat, plenty of mixed veggies and lots of Chinese flavour.
The most authentic egg roll in a bowl will be made with pork mince, but Weight Watchers members and many other healthy dieters prefer chicken or turkey.
Egg Roll In A Bowl Vs Spring Roll In A Bowl
There is always this big debate over if it is egg roll in a bowl or spring roll in a bowl.
I think this comes down to where you live and what foods you are putting in your bowl.
I grew up in England and didn’t hear the words “egg roll” until I made friends with Americans. To us Brits they are either spring rolls or big spring rolls.
Those big spring rolls of course is what I now know to be egg rolls.
I asked my readers recently what the difference was, and I received a lot of messages about size and filling and type of roll up used.
But when spring rolls are sold with a variety of fillings it is still hard to get your head around it if you have not grown up on egg rolls.
I like to think of it as egg roll in a bowl but you can also call it spring roll in a bowl if you prefer.
Healthy Egg Roll In A Bowl Variations
When I think of egg roll in a bowl, I am thinking of healthy egg roll in a bowl.
That is because it reminds me of delicious stir fry’s and other similar food that is good for you and is what you eat when you follow a healthy diet.
But we all have a different opinion of what healthy eating means. To me healthy is the Mediterranean diet and the local diet that I follow.
Its low on processed foods and people live well into their 80’s because of the local diet they follow. It is also rather like the Weight Watchers Diet.
Others might think of healthy and think to eat clean, while another might follow Keto, Paleo or be doing a round of the Whole30. Or you might even be vegan.
The greatest thing of all is that all diets can easily adapt the egg roll in the bowl for their type of healthy.
- You can swap soy sauce for this product here. It is keto, vegan, whole30, paleo and low carb and is ideal for making egg roll in a bowl.

Weight Watchers Egg Roll In A Bowl
If you follow Weight Watchers, I recommend that you make either a chicken egg roll in a bowl or a turkey. That is because as zero-point foods it will keep your points down.
Then the only Weight Watchers points would be for the extra virgin olive oil. Or if you have another preferred oil you can use that instead.
Low Carb Egg Roll In A Bowl
If you want to say low carb and follow Keto, then I recommend you use this instead of soy sauce and that you use ground minced beef instead.

- Stir and add in Chinese 5 spice and salt and pepper.
- Pour in chicken stock and stir one last time.
- Load the veggies on top, but don’t stir.
