Lightly seasoned ground turkey forms the super protein-y, low-carb base for this easy, quick meal, while lots of cabbage and carrots balance it all out. Soy sauce, garlic and ginger stay true to all of the classic egg rolls flavors you love so much—all we’ve taken away is the deep frying. If you are just trying to keep things low-carb, follow the recipe as-is. But if you’re really going for broke and want to make this egg roll in a bowl keto, leave off the wonton strips. It’ll still be super delicious, just lacking a bit in crispy-crunchiness.

    Oh my goodness, this was SO GOOD! I made it for the first time tonight and next time I'm going to make 50% more so there's leftovers... and so we can eat more :) I cooked it in a cast iron skillet and found the moisture from the turkey/onion mixture evaporated off so I didn't need to drain any liquid. This is going in the regular recipe rotation, fo' sho'!

    Yay! Glad this dish made the regular rotation list!
