Healthy Pork Egg Roll Soup
Pork Egg Roll Soup brings all the yummy, Asian flavors of egg rolls with none of the fried guilt! Cabbage soup is one of my favorite options when I want something healthy, comforting, yet very filling. Not to mention that cabbage soup is affordable to make! By utilizing the egg roll flavors, we really amp up this cabbage soup!
Do you still eat soup as the weather warms up? Although soups and stews aren’t as heavy in my rotation in the Spring and Summer, I still love making and eating them. I think they are an amazing way to use up the yummy, in-season produce. And for me, warmer weather means busier schedules. So a simple, quick soup is ideal for my weekly meal-prep.
What You’ll Need for this Egg Roll Soup:
- Ground Pork (you can substitute ground chicken or ground turkey if you’d like!)
- Olive oil
- Green Cabbage
- Garlic and Ginger powder
- Toasted sesame oil (adds AWESOME flavor!)
- Chicken or Vegetable stock
- Sesame seeds and sliced green onions
With an ingredient list that simple and yummy, what are you waiting for? The best part, this soup doesn’t take long to pull together. We start by browning the ground pork. Then sauté the onion, carrots, and add the garlic and ginger. NOW your kitchen is going to be smelling gooooood. Finally, just add back in the pork, cabbage, and stock. Let everything simmer together for 15 minutes. This entire pot of soup comes together in about a half an hour.
Although I find this soup super easy to make on a weeknight on the stove, you could make it in the slow cooker as well! I’d brown and crumble your ground pork first and then add all ingredients to your crock-pot. Bam. Healthy, comforting soup waiting for you at the end of your day.
Although in many recipes, the garnishes are considered ‘optional’, for this soup they are a must! The sesame seeds and sliced green onions not only add pretty color, but they pack that final punch of Asian, Egg Roll flavor. Trust me on this one!
