Description

Do you love sushi but don’t want the hassle of making it at home? This vegan sushi bowl is a deconstructed sushi in a bowl, perfect for weeknight meals.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked brown or white rice
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 sheets nori paper*
  • 1/2 cup edamame (we used frozen shelled, which is easiest if you can find it)
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 avocado

Instructions

  1. Make the rice, according to the package instructions or use our Instant Pot method.* Note: If using white rice, this bowl can be made in 30 minutes.
  2. Over low heat in a dry skillet, toast sesame seeds for several minutes, stirring frequently and watching closely, until lightly browned.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the fresh orange juice, soy sauce, white wine vinegar and sesame oil. Set aside.
  4. Slice the nori paper into thin shreds (it is a little tough to cut, but do your best to make thin ribbons).
  5. Prepare the edamame according to the package instructions (if fresh, place shelled edamame in boiling water for a few minutes until bright green).
  6. Peel and shred the carrots. Thinly slice the green onions. Chop the cucumber into thin strips. Chop the avocado into slices or chunks.
  7. To serve, place rice in a bowl. Top with carrots, cucumber, avocado, green onions, sesame seeds, and nori shreds. Drizzle with dressing.

Notes

*Nori paper can be found in the international aisle; it is the black seaweed paper used to make sushi rolls.
