I’ve really been trying hard to minimize grains from my diet. I just feel a lot better, and have a lot less cravings when I don’t eat them. So most of my meals are packed with meats and vegetables.

I got the idea for this Egg Roll Stir Fry Recipe after salivating while watching my daughter eat a fried egg roll from our local Chinese restaurant. I wanted one SO badly, but all the oil, calories, and fat in it, would totally de-rail me. So I thought that maybe, just maybe, I could emulate all that yummy egg roll flavor, but in a healthier stir-fry instead.

Turns out that this was a totally doable feat, and was super delicious to boot. If you aren’t a fan of pork, you could easily do this with ground beef or chicken instead. Now, if I could just come up with a light and healthy sweet and sour sauce to drizzle over it, I’ll be in heaven!

  1. Did you know that WalMart carries a WW friendly eggroll? They are made by Van’s and are in the Deli section of the store. OMG they are amazing. 1 chicken eggroll = 4 SP and 2 = 7 SP. I baked them in my toaster oven and made a dipping sauce for 0 SP. I used 1 T Smuckers SF Orange Marmalade and added soy sauce and Sriracha to taste. AMAZING!!

  2. Have you thought about stuffing this into a wonton wrapper and baking it in the oven with a little chili sauce for dipping? It is a starch, but still an eggroll (kind of) Either way, I love your recipes. They’ve helped me lose about 13 pounds (& counting) and there has not been one recipe that Ive tried that I haven’t loved. And I do at least two a week. Thanks again!
