Un-Rolled Egg Rolls


The Boat Galley
By Carolyn Shearlock

If you’re eating low carb or keto, it seems impossible to have most Asian food. Almost every dish contains rice or has some sort of a no-no wrapper.

For quite a while, I’ve been looking around for some sort of Asian dish that would be legal for me (a diabetic). Most that I found online simply had too many carbs for my needs. I started experimenting and tweaking the proportions until I hit the sweet spot of great taste and very low carb.

These low carb/keto/gluten-free (and dairy-free) egg rolls without the wrapper will really hit the spot. Not having to deep fry them — as you would do with wrappers — also qualifies as super boat-friendly.

The best part? Everyone will love them as just “a good meal.”

Just 8g of total carbs per serving (6g net) and no soy as soy ingredients can spike blood glucose in many diabetics, including me. If you are not sensitive to soy, you can use soy sauce in place of the coconut aminos. If you do so, omit the salt.

One key is that if you want to use prepared coleslaw mix instead of chopping cabbage yourself, be sure to use one that is just plain cabbage without carrots (carrots have quite a few carbs).

The trick is to not use more veggies than called for unless your eating plan allows more . . .
