What to Eat with Egg Roll in a Bowl

This is already a full meal, but egg roll in a bowl is perfectly complemented by red leaf salad, some roasted broccoli, or a nice slice of fresh bread (if you’re not going for low carb ;)). And why not make a batch of delicious Wonton Crisps as an appetizer? (They also work great for scooping this up (from experience!)!)
