If you like egg rolls, and you like soup, then this is the soup for you! Remember a while back when I made that Egg Roll Bowl? Well, this is sort of a winter-ized take on that. It’s an egg roll that’s been turned into a soup!
Yes, all the flavors and components of a good egg roll are here in this soup; including onions, cabbage, carrots, and meat. Even though I made my last egg roll recipe with chicken, I decided to go with turkey this time around. This was for no other reason than texture. It’s low-carb, gluten-free, and ridiculously easy to make all in one pot.
I sliced my cabbage thin, but kept it long enough to give the illusion here of noodles almost. And I will say, that since there’s very few ingredients here in this soup, that you do have to season it somewhat aggressively with salt. I always like to use low sodium items so that I can have free range to season to my own taste… and not to what someone else has decided for me.
This super simple soup is delicious, and considering you only have to dirty one pot in the process, it couldn’t be more easy to make. Great for a busy weeknight dinner or as a meal prep for lunches through the week.
While I didn’t serve my soup today with anything, it would be really good if paired with some sushi or maybe even some homemade dumplings of some sort!
