This vegetarian egg roll in a bowl is not only delicious, but it is veggie packed, full of protein, and low carb to boot.

I am no stranger to takeout inspired recipes and some of our favorites include cabbage stir fry, tofu fried rice, broccoli and tofu in garlic sauce, and teriyaki vegetables.

Ingredients to make vegetarian egg roll filling

  • extra firm tofu
  • green cabbage
  • shredded carrots: I prefer to buy them in the store as they are thicker cut and give a nicer texture and bite
  • sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • sesame oil
  • soy sauce
  • fresh garlic and ginger: these are musts for the best flavor in any stir fry dish!
  • green onion

How to make vegetarian egg roll in a bowl

Step 1: Drain the tofu and press for 5-10 minutes. It doesn’t need to be too long, we just want to try to get some of that extra moisture out.

Step 2: Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble the tofu with your hands and add it to the skillet

Cook the tofu for 10-15 minutes, until starting to brown on the edges. Let it sit for 3-4 minutes at a time to get a sizzle/browning on one side before flipping.

Step 3: Move the tofu over to one side of the skillet, and on the other side add the mushrooms, carrots, cabbage, ginger, garlic, green onion, and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.

Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 4: Add 2 more tablespoons of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to the pan once the veggies are mostly cooked down.

Stir and continue cooking for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are the desired softness.

Serve this vegetarian egg roll in a bowl garnished any way you like it!

We enjoyed ours as is, but peanuts or siracha would also make great toppings if that’s your thing.

This was such a yummy veggie packed meal that left me feeling amazing!
