When I was younger, my friend Jennifer’s parents would regularly order us Chinese food. I was obsessed with egg rolls. Sometimes I would just eat an egg roll (or a few!) for dinner. Jennifer and I had this really weird way of eating them in which we completely disassembled them. You ate the outside, then the inside.

Always dipped in that weird orange duck sauce.

At this point in my life, it’s been a solid four years since I’ve had Chinese food. So I have to settle for making my own Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl, which I find tastes better anyway.

I got the idea for this Paleo Egg Roll recipe from a restaurant recently. They had an unstuffed egg roll option with rice and shrimp – I thought it was a great idea. You can add any protein you like, I used chicken.
