Inside Outside Egg Roll

I know what you are thinking... this does not look like egg rolls! Actually, it looks like one big pile of mess on a plate lol. Well, this is a low carb egg roll :) It is similiar to the inside of an egg roll without that higher carb crispy outside shell. Yeah, the one deep fried in tons of oil. Big no, no if you are trying to lose weight. I absolutely love them and actually make one heck of an egg roll, but they aren't too kind to my waist line so these will make a great substitute. The best way to measure the lettuce is with a digital scale and by using this Vegetable Weight Conversion Chart. Remember to choose the correct form of the vegetable by how you are going to eat it. For instance, if you are eating the veggie cooked, then choose the cooked weight of cabbage. Enjoy!
