No Wrapper Eggroll in a Bowl

This recipe has the flavors of an eggroll without the unhealthy fried wrapper. Who knew that the eggroll flavors were so easy to replicate?

To preserve the cancer fighting glucosinolates in cabbage, don't overcook or microwave it.  This damages myrosinase enzymes which help transform the glucosinolates into cancer-protective compounds.

The recipe is so tasty and simple to make that It has become a staple at our house.  If you're really craving the crunch of the fried wonton wrappers, try baking them in strips and sprinkling them over the top.

Forgot the lean sausage? No problem! Leftover chicken, pork, or beef also work well.  Other tasty substitutions include cilantro for green onions or frozen peas and carrots for the plain peas.  Miso paste adds a nice flavor and some gut healthy probiotics. Lastly, try some avocado on top for more soluble fiber and healthy fats. 

Ingredients:

1 lb lean chicken sausage

1 bag shredded cabbage and carrots

1/2 cup frozen peas

4 cloves garlic, minced 

1 teaspoon ginger, minced

1/2 Tb white miso paste

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

2 Tb water

1 green onion, sliced

Directions: 

Cook sausage over medium heat in a large pan until done and drain any leftover grease.  Add peas, garlic, and ginger.  Mix miso, soy sauce, and water.  Add soy sauce mixture to pan and cook until thoroughly combined.

Plate and add green onions for garnish.
