Egg Roll in a Bowl with Creamy Sriracha Sauce

Egg Roll in a Bowl_menumusings.com
Lately I've been hearing a lot of talk among my friends about this concept.  The internet is loaded with recipes and I was feeling a little left out.  After making this, I wondered what the heck I was waiting for?  So good!  This recipe is super easy and quick to throw together, and hits all the right marks.  How great is it to get one of your favorite Chinese recipes that's also healthy for you and free of all those preservatives?

You could totally swap out the protein for ground turkey or chicken if you don't eat pork.  You could even to a vegan alternative by using TVP and vegan mayo.  Anyway, options are always welcome when it comes to food... right?
