This vegan, nutritious poke bowl filled with lots of veggies and a sriracha dressing is so delicious and addicting. A one-bowl recipe with so many beautiful ingredients and easy to make is a perfect meal that is customizable for your palate.
A poke bowl in Hawaiian is usually meant as a meal that has chunks of marinated fish brought together with rice, vegetables and a dressing. Though it is a Hawaiian-American dish, the flavors are influenced from Japanese cuisine which is a favorite in our home.
I wanted to make a vegan version of a traditional poke bowl, so I chose to marinate beets, and use toasted tofu instead of the fish. Carrot lox was an amazing addition also to this bowl. Here are all of the ingredients I used to make this bowl:
Marinated Beets – marinated beets have a similar texture and color to tuna poke: smooth and buttery. Mixed with a poke sauce, they pick up the flavors of tamari, sesami, and sriracha.
Tofu – crispy tofu chunks are the perfect addition for protein in this bowl. You can also add edamame or tempeh.
Carrot Lox – This is a great way to add a crunchy texture, and a bit of fishy flavor without the fish. If you don’t have time to prep the carrot lox, feel free to substitute it with seaweed salad.
Brown Rice – this is a great base for your bowl and soaks up all of the flavors of the different ingredients. For a gluten free option, substitute with Quinoa instead.
Veggies & Fruits – I used radishes and avocados, but there are so many other vegetables that can be added. Think purple cabbage, cucumbers, peas, and mung bean sprouts.
Dressing – a Sriracha Mayo dressing is the perfect topping to bring this bowl together. Use vegan mayo or vegan yogurt to make the dressing – both work well.
Garnishes – use sesame seeds, jalapenos, lemon wedges, or cilantro to garnish this bowl for the finishing touch.
