I keep seeing this posted amongst my friends and I decided to try my hand at making an Instant Pot Eggroll in a Bowl. Honestly, I have seen this made with all kinds of vegetables and meats, but I chose a vegetarian option since I was looking for something filling but low in points. On the Weight Watchers SmartPoints plan, this is only 1 SmartPoint per serving!

Adding in seasoned ground turkey or pork is a common option, and one that would still be low points value if you are watching for Weight Watchers. However, we feel it is totally unnecessary and we love using just this simple recipe for a side dish, or even just a large vegetarian meal.
I use the Instant Pot DUO0 8-in-1 Pot, but you can use whatever version you prefer. I love that this is something I can make in just a few minutes and can add tons of good nutrients, fiber, and flavor to any meal.

I like doing this for a side dish along with grilled chicken or our Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken recipe. However, if you are vegan or vegetarian, you can easily use this as an entree by eating a larger portion over a bed of brown rice or other whole grain. It is full of flavor, and tons of fiber. That means you’ll stay full longer, and the lower calories and points make it a favorite.
Adding meat to the eggroll in a bowl recipe
While many recipes out there call for browned sausage or ground pork, I prefer this without the meat. As our family transitions from vegetarian to vegan for health reasons, it just makes sense to start off by including recipes like this into our diet. However, if your family is a meat eating/loving family, then you can easily brown some sausage or ground meat of choice and mix into this after it has cooked. Some even grill up some shrimp and toss with this mixture.
Make this eggroll in a bowl recipe easily in your Instant Pot. Using an Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker helps eliminate mess in your kitchen, and saves a ton of time!
