HOW TO MAKE EGG ROLL IN A BOWL
In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain and push the meat to the outer edges of the skillet. Add sesame oil to the center, along with the garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Stir meat and garlic together and add the following ingredients to the pan:
16-oz. bag coleslaw mix
2 medium carrots, grated
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
Cook mixture for 5 minutes, or until coleslaw and carrots are soft. Serve immediately and top with green onions and sesame seeds.
For an even healthier dish, replace the ground pork with ground chicken, ground turkey or ground beef.
Serve with additional soy sauce for an extra savory meal.
This dish makes delicious leftovers and reheats well.
Replace with coconut aminos in order to comply with the Whole30 food program and also for a gluten free dish.
Shrimp also goes great in this recipe! Saute the shrimp in olive oil first (cook until shrimp are pink-this takes only a few minutes), remove from the pan and add them back in at the very end.
If you can’t find pre-packaged coleslaw mix at the store, make your own while also saving a bit of money. Thinly slice or grate green and/or red cabbage as a replacement. You’ll need a total of 3 cups of shredded cabbage to add to the recipe.
This is a great meal prep recipe! Prep on Sunday and enjoy throughout the week as a salad, side or snack. Make a double batch!
HOW TO CUT CABBAGE
Remove and discard the outermost leaves and cut the very bottom of the stem off. Place the head of cabbage on its end where you cut and slice down the center vertically. Cut each half lengthwise. Remove the core and stem by cutting a wedge out of each quarter. Place each cabbage quarter onto a flat portion so it is lying flat and slice 1/4-inch strips, creating shredded cabbage.
HOW MANY CALORIES IN CABBAGE
One cup of shredded cabbage contains approximately 17 calories.
HOW MANY CARBS IN CABBAGE
One cup of shredded cabbage contains approximately 4 grams of carbohydrates.
CAN DOGS EAT CABBAGE
All types of cabbage are not only safe for dogs to eat, but are actually beneficial. It aids in digestion and can help to fight disease. Be warned, however, that cabbage can produce gas, so feed it to your dog in small quantities for this reason.
