What you'll need for Weight Watchers Egg Roll in a Bowl
The perfect dinner starts with using the freshest ingredients, and this eggroll in a bowl Weight Watchers recipe is no different.
- sesame oil - this is essential to the flavor, do not leave it out!
- ground chicken or turkey (we used 93%/7%)
- 1 bag pre-shredded cabbage blend with carrots- buying a bag of cabbage mix is quickest but you can slice cabbage if preferred. Carrots are optional.
- fresh ginger - we love to buy the Dorot frozen minced ginger cubes
- garlic - either the Dorot frozen minced garlic cubes or freshly minced
- soy sauce or Coconut Aminos - soy is most common but coconut aminos is gluten free and tastes just like soy sauce
- green onions
- Sriracha sauce (optional) - mix it with a little mayo (regular or light) to create a spicy mayo sauce
You'll want to use a non-stick skillet since there's very little oil in this recipe and you don't want it to stick to the pan.

How to make Egg Roll in a Bowl
Here we go, my friend! Let's create a flavorful meal that your whole family is sure to love. In just 15 minutes of time we'll be cooking the ground meat, adding the veggies, and seasoning to the same pan and in a flash you have the savory and healthy Weight Watchers egg roll in a bowl recipe.
1. Cook the Chicken or Turkey
Start by cooking your chicken (or turkey) over medium-high heat until cooked through. This took us about 5-6 minutes. If your meat looks a little greasy feel free to give it a quick drain.
2. Add the Veggies & Seasoning
Add the bag of shredded cabbage mix, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce or coconut aminos. If mixed cabbage is not your thing, you can easily use just green cabbage - we just prefer the taste of the mix, and the color.
Sauté the mixture for 3-4 mins until the cabbage is cooked through, but still crisp-tender. Keep a good eye on your pan and stir it around frequently so you don't end up with soggy cabbage.
Mix in the green onions and add a little extra as a garnish on the top if desired.
Drizzle with a little sriracha sauce (optional) or make a quick chili sauce by combining a touch of mayo with sriracha to taste to increase the heat factor of this dish.
And there you go! Start to finish, this entire dish takes just 15 minutes!
Egg Roll in a Bowl Weight Watchers recipe tips
- Prepare all the ingredients before heating the pan or wok. When making a stir-fry, things move quickly. Have everything cut and measured before you start. This step only takes about 5 minutes, especially if you purchase the bag of cabbage.
- Be sure to use a non-stick skillet so the food doesn't stick to the pan
- We prefer to use lean ground chicken or turkey with a little fat in it since it adds more flavor, but if you use very low-fat meat you might need to increase the seasoning to taste a bit.
- While keeping the fat down it might be tempting to skip the sesame oil, a little goes a LONG way and it truly adds so much flavor it's a must-include item.
