Quick and easy and oh-so-tasty, egg roll bowl is bound to become a new favorite. This tastes just like an egg roll, but without any of the bad-for-you stuff (yes, wheat flour wraps deep fried in nasty vegetable oils, I’m looking at you).

And it’s topped with a scrumptious sesame sauce that also works well on lots of other foods, like salads, fish, baked chicken, and so much more!

This recipe is Paleo, low carb, Keto, CleanKeto, and Whole30, and also on-plan when you’re doing my 10-Day Detox.
