Egg Roll Bowl Recipe

What happens to Egg rolls when we ditch the carbs? Egg roll bowl serves a deliciously easy answer to that and it’s even better than the real deal!

Life is full of controversies or maybe just humans are? If that is the case surely the web wouldn’t be full of adorable animal photos of unlikely friendships. Surprisingly, Zootopia is not the only place where predator and prey live together in harmony.

It’s true that those who share common goals get together more easily but it is not always the case. It certainly helps a lot in bonding if a prey doesn’t have to fear for its life every time his friend yawns but if basic needs meet, life takes a more relaxed turn.

When humans get bored -and that happens fairly quickly- their inner creativity seeps out through the cracks of reality and unexpected things happen. Some simply seek the rush of adrenaline and try everything to get their shot from mundane base jumping to more exciting car roof surfing.

Others do not necessarily end up with activities that makes more sense but at least handy-work keeps their life more in line with the general life expectancy statistic.

It’s a pity that we are steering into the opposite direction, fearing rather perceived existential threats from all directions. It certainly doesn’t help that there are many things trying to kill us beside the changing climate and microscopic creatures, there are still sharks and cows, but we are pretty good making up things too.

It all comes down to our tribal roots where being part of the group made us survive while not being the part of the tribe made us perish in the wilderness. We learnt to rely on our known surrounding and distrust anything that looks unfamiliar.

This is the very reason we use uniforms in many aspects of our society and that all bankers look the same too. Afterall who in their right mind would trust their hard-earned money to somebody who wears flip-flops and T-shirt, right?

So, we have learned to be suspicious of anything that looks out of context which could be a bummer for people of other races trying to get their way forward in a society, different than their own. Just imagine how outstanding could have been being a 6”2 black samurai in japan in the 16th century.

Or imagine if Yasuke wasn’t a samurai but a chef. It could have transferred the whole sushi scene into something totally different that we know as of today. Actually, that happened anyway but not by chefs but by the mingling of cultures.

When we open the door on our heart -or on our pantries- many things will come and go. Some will like Marmite, others like muffins and in rare cases Marmite on muffin.

Sure enough, there were better things born from the meeting of cultures otherwise egg rolls could have never taken root in America. Not like egg rolls haven’t got their peculiarities being a meal that has nothing to do with its name.

Egg rolls have no eggs in them nor wrapped in eggs but still persist they are. In reality the difference between and egg rolls and spring rolls -from its Chinese father- is getting so slim that soon it will disappear completely.

So when we unwrap the egg roll into a bowl, expect no eggs neither starchy wrapping but crunchy cabbage with a bit of ground meat here and there, bind together with some tasty spices and basic herbs.Egg-roll-bowl-4-SunCakeMom
