To me there’s not much better than to head out to one of the local Chinese restaurants with one of my kids and fill up on all of those yummy carbs. Unfortunately carbs don’t do my body any good — leaving it looking something like a cross between over-risen bread dough and a lumpy bag of potatoes. The carbs and the salt combination that restaurant style Asian food has is a guarantee that I’ll soak up every molecule of water near me — even the humidity in the air ends up settling in around my waistline… or where my waistline used to be.

My kids love Asian food, although my husband is not a fan, so we have standing dates for birthdays and special days. Sometimes we just go because there are a few extra dollars in the checking account. 🙂 It means that I totally blow my carb allotment for the week but once in awhile it’s worth it. I am addicted to egg rolls. I could literally eat pounds of them. In fact, if there were an egg roll eating contest I am pretty sure that I would leave looking like Humpty-Dumpty but sporting a first place ribbon.

If only I could have those flavors I love every single day.

I am not going to tell you this low carb egg roll in a bowl tastes exactly like egg rolls. It doesn’t, but it is yummy and it tastes enough like egg rolls (without the crispy fried exterior) to make me happy without the high carb side effects. You can adjust the ingredients with other low carb ingredients to make it taste exactly the way you like it. And, it heats up well so you can make a batch on the weekend and keep it for quick and easy lunches during the week.

I like mine spicy so I usually add a few slivers of jalapeno and some crushed red peppers. Adjust that to fit your own tastes — you can leave it out completely if you want. Give it a try — and don’t forget the hot mustard sauce to drizzle on top.

Easy low carb egg roll is made without the wrapper but has all of that great flavor! From lowcarb-ology.com

Oriental Hot Mustard Powder is simply mixed with water to get that spicy, clear-out-your-sinuses sauce that egg rolls are dipped in. With less than 1 carb per teaspoon it’s perfect to drizzle over the low carb egg rolls! Although sesame seeds don’t have many carbs (just 1 net carb per tablespoon) hemp seeds have less than 1 gram net carbs so a tablespoon sprinkled over your low carb egg roll bowl adds flavor, texture, and visual interest without extra carbs.

Here’s that low carb egg roll recipe!

    I love egg rolls, too. Since my daughter cant have gluten, we skip the egg rolls at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I might try your recipe and use rice wrappers for her – the kind they use for spring rolls. For me, I’ll eat the recipe as is! Yum!
