    ❓Recipe FAQs

    How many calories in egg roll in a bowl?

    A huge serving of these vegetarian egg roll bowls has only about 150 calories! That’s less than what you’d get in one tiny regular egg roll.

    How long does egg roll in a bowl last in the fridge? Does it reheat well?

    Leftover egg roll in a bowl filling will last in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days. It reheats really well – just pop it in the microwave and warm for about 1 minute until fully heated through.
