This lunch/dinner/snack is ready in less than 5 minutes, which is ALWAYS a bonus in my house! These 5-minute poke bowls are easy to scale so you can make two or ten and it remains quick and simple. It’s also super simple to customize to your own individual tastes or cravings, or that of your family.
START WITH RICE
I chose these microwavable frozen jasmine rice packs from Trader Joe’s for my poke bowl. I have yet to master making the perfect sushi rice at home so this microwave version works best for me. They have brown rice, cauliflower rice, quinoa, or you could definitely make your rice on the stovetop if that’s what you prefer. See what I mean… SO easy to customize!
I think this cauliflower coconut rice would also be delicious with this bowl!
Once you’ve placed your rice in your bowl, top it with a little soy, fish sauce or coconut aminos to give it some umami.
NEXT, CHOOSE YOUR PROTIEN
These smoked ahi tuna or smoked salmon packets are what makes this such a quick meal. You don’t have to COOK anything! Simply grab your favorite and shred it over your rice. Feel free to substitute leftover salmon or shrimp here as well. Or leave it out all together if you’re going for more of a vegan bowl!
Now, Add the texture
As with traditional sushi, I love to add an avocado, sliced cucumbers & microgreens to my poke bowl. I then top the whole thing with sriracha and Everything but the Bagel seasoning and EAT!
Other things that would be delicious:
- Crunchy Fried Onions
- Diced Mangos
- Sesame Seeds
- Pickled Red Onions
- Spicy Mayo
- Pickled Jalapenos
- Bean Sprouts
- Shredded Carrots
HAVE A PARTY
This would also be a great way to have a Build Your Own Sushi Bar party (once COVID is over). Set out bowls with ALL of the things and let the guests just go to town building the poke bowl of their dreams!
