Egg Roll Rice Bowls

WINNIPEG, Man — Looking for an ultra quick and affordable dinner option? I’ve got ya! These Egg Roll Rice Bowls are done in under 20 minutes and pretty much as cheap as dirt. I’m not kidding! Consisting of mostly cabbage, rice and ground pork, you can throw a dinner for four together in under $6. How’s that for light on the wallet?

Egg Roll Rice BowlsDon’t let the lacklustre ingredients turn you off. Surprisingly, these rice bowls are packed with flavour thanks to a special mixture of dark soy sauce, rice vinegar and Chinese cooking wine. You can grab a bottle of each of these at Superstore for under $3 bucks each, and they will last you a long, long time. The dish is rounded off by using Jasmine Rice, which is a more fragrant and flavourful option than long grain white rice or basmati.

These power-packed bowels aren’t just a smart dinner option! This dish is a meal prepper’s dream as it stores well and heats-up nicely in the microwave. Just add a bit of water and heat on high for about 3 minutes and you have a perfect lunch on the go.
