Egg Roll Skillett (5 Ingredients!)

By Coach Courtney, RD www.vitalitynutrition.ca

I love simple recipes. Too many ingredients in a recipe leaves me feeling overwhelmed and less likely to want to prepare it. I kept this recipe to 5 simple ingredients but you can definitely add more flavor and complexity with my recommendations below. The versatility of this recipe is what makes it so great! The meal comes together in well under 30 minutes and requires one pot for easy clean up. You can make the most of your time by chopping the veggies as the turkey cooks or purchase pre-shredded coleslaw mix to replace the cabbage.

I tried this recipe with both ground turkey and ground beef and enjoyed them equally. The recipe is great as written but you can adjust it based on your personal preference or macronutrient needs. For example:

  • Fats can be increased by serving it with cashews, avocado, or opting for ground beef or pork over ground turkey.

  • Carbs can be increased by serving alongside 1/2 to 1 cup of rice

  • Veggies can be increased or swapped out. Try adding match stick carrots, sliced peppers, or a couple handfuls of spinach!

  • Extras can be added for a more flavorful dish. Drizzle sriracha over top, add soy sauce, use sesame oil to saute the garlic and onions, or add some grated ginger!

Aside from being quick to assemble, the recipe is also budget friendly as cabbage tends to be a more affordable veggie but still packed with fibre, vitamins, and minerals!

This recipe hits my main requirements for a meal which include a source of protein, fibre, and lots of volume from the cabbage and mushrooms. Again, the combinations are endless so mix it up to suit your preference. The recipe is even better reheated as leftovers!
