Yesterday, I posted the recipe for my Soul Roll Sauce.
Today, let us discuss making Soul Bowls.
See, it had been close to a year since I last made Soul Rolls, so, while I knew that one batch of the filling would yield 20 Soul Rolls; I had forgotten how many egg roll wrappers were in one package (answer: 10), so, while I had ten very tasty Soul Rolls to bring to Book Club, I also had a fair amount of seasoned meat and coleslaw blend left.
What to do?
Why, make it all into a bowl, of course!
Just as tasty as the appetizer rolls, but gluten-free and, served, as I did with yellow rice and asparagus, a very nice meal!
•1 lb ground turkey
•2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
•1-1/2 tsp Seasoned Salt
•1 tsp ground black pepper
•1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper
•1 tsp garlic powder
•1 tsp paprika
•1 tsp dried parsley
•1 tbsp Sherry Peppers Sauce*
•2 cups diced sweet onion
•1/2 pint Pepper Relish
•1/2 bag coleslaw mix
•2 tbsp Soul Roll Sauce
*No Sherry Peppers Sauce? No Problem! Simply add a bit of decent sherry (none of that “cooking” stuff) and a dash or three of your fave hot sauce, to taste.
Heat one tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the turkey, seasonings, onion, Sherry Peppers Sauce and pepper relish and stir, breaking up the turkey into crumbles, until it is thoroughly cooked.
Set aside to cool.
Remove from the pan and transfer to a storage container.
Warm the remaining one tablespoon of oil to the pan over medium high heat, and add the half bag of coleslaw mix and the Soul Roll Sauce.
Toss to combine, then stir fry until the coleslaw mix is tender – about ten minutes.
Stir in half of the turkey mixture and continue to cook until heated through.
Serve in a bowl with yellow rice (our current fave is Zatarain’s, which is also gluten-free, so, yay!), and blanched asparagus, which I sliced and tossed into the rice cooker after the cycle completed and let rest for ten minutes or so.
Note: so, this happy bowl concept came to me because I had not bought enough egg roll wrappers. Tomorrow, we will turn the rest of the coleslaw mix, turkey, and a few other things into baked Soul Rolls.
