Weight Watchers Egg Roll in a bowl is an Asian inspired one-skillet dish that is ready in less than 20 minutes. This is a low point option for lunches and dinners and great for an alternative to Chinese take out.

 Anytime that you want Asian food while being on Weight Watchers it’s a little hard to find something in the low point range due to sweetness from the teriyaki or soy sauce along with other things like tamari, Hoisin, or oyster sauce. However, this Weight Watchers Egg Roll in a Bowl omits all three of those ingredients but they are optional if you still want extra flavor.

 One of my favorite things about this dish is it is a one-pan meal. It’s quick and easy and it’s low in points. Weight Watchers Egg Roll in a bowl can be personalized when it comes to veggies, meats, and other sauces depending on what your favorite is.

 If you are looking for some a side dish to go with your Egg Roll in a Bowl be sure to try the Instant Pot Lo Mein and Sesame Ginger Cauliflower. There is also a recipe for Air Fryer Egg Rolls that are a more traditional style using the wrappers.  If you love Chinese food don’t forget to check out Instant Pot Kung Pao Chicken and my Shrimp Stir Fry. All of the mentioned recipes are Weight Watchers friendly too.
