Healthy Egg Roll Stir Fry

Healthy Egg Roll Stir Fry - Family Fresh Meals

One thing I like to do in the kitchen is take a favorite recipe and come up with a healthier version. I’ve lightened up chicken Cordon Bleu by cutting the fat and salt, lightened up Philly cheese steak by turning it into stuffed peppers, and even lightened up apple pie by making a smoothie version.

 When I tried to lighten up egg rolls, though, I ran into a big problem. The stuff inside the egg roll was fine—just meat and veggies—but then it was all rolled up inside a starchy wrapper and deep-fried. How was I supposed to make that healthier?

 I could only think of one way: ditch the wrapper completely.

 This Healthy Egg Roll Stir Fry has all the good parts of the egg roll – lean ground beef, loads of veggies, and yummy seasonings like ginger and garlic – without that greasy fried coating. And it turns out, getting rid of the outside makes egg rolls a lot easier to make, too. No need to mess around with lots of little wrappers and a pan full of hot oil – all you have to do is fry the meat and veggies together in just a little bit of oil, season, and serve.

 So this healthier egg roll isn’t just lighter on your waistline – it’s lighter on your workload as well.

  1. I made this for dinner last night and it is delicious! This morning I had some more and air fried a low carb tortilla to put it in. Sooooo Good for breakfast too!

  2. This is a staple here in my house and I make this often! Just wanted to say thanks for posting! I always make enough for leftovers! I can say enough how happy I am that you can change the servings because in the past I had to make a guess at how much I should be using to make a larger meal. Which is fine, but the flavor was a little different everytime.

    I also add some sliced mushrooms and made some rice to go with it

    1. That sounds like a yummy addition!
