This healthy one pan Spring Roll in a bowl is the perfect fakeaway meal to satisfy those cravings.
Craving some take-out Chinese food but trying to be healthy? Look no further. A new addition to my Fakeaway menu is the Spring Roll in a Bowl. This tasty traditional dish is filled with speed food and will satisfy your Umami cravings but not ruin your diet.
Traditionally spring rolls are quite a naughty treat as they are deep-fried. This cooking technique never fails to taste great but it’s definitely not Syn friendly. For this reason, they’re a rare treat in this house.
I decided to figure out a Syn friendly solution to my craving and ultimately realized the way forward was to eliminate the wrapper and skip deep frying. Once you add the ingredients together, you don’t need to encase them or deep fry. You just need to eat!
I’m so happy my trials to create a healthy spring roll option worked out so well and I’m sure you’ll be pleased too. Sometimes I don’t even want or need a main meal from a Chinese takeaway, I just want a few tasty side dishes and spring rolls are one of my favourites. Now we don’t need to feel guilty about indulging ourselves and we can keep our syns for a treat.
