Deconstructed Sushi Bowl

Are you someone that craves sushi a lot? To be honest, I have no idea how to make sushi from scratch. One night, I really wanted sushi, but didn't want to go out to eat. I tend to eat way more and my body feels better when I eat at home. I love cooking, so I thought why not make it into a bowl? That way I was able to swap out the rice for quinoa and make my own homemade dairy-free "spicy mayo dipping sauce". Veggies are the star of the dish here because I was able to up my veggie game by making it at home. Ditch the takeout because you will definitely want to try my all new deconstructed sushi bowl.

Ingredients:

  • 2 5 or 6 oz cans of chunk lite tuna, drained
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1/3 cup mayo or veganaise
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, cubed
  • 1-2 small carrots, julienned
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups of greens of choice (spinach, kale, arugula, watercress)
  • 1 cup of seaweed (optional)
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha (optional)
  • Top with sesame seeds

 For the Spicy Mayo Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4-1/3 cup water or vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1 tsp sriracha (optional)

Directions:
1) Prepare the rice by pouring 2 cups of water with 1 cup of rice into a pot. Turn the heat on medium-high to bring to a boil (3-5 minutes)
Turn the heat down to medium-low and let it simmer covered for 40 minutes or until all the water is evaporated. Let cool for 5 minutes
and stir in 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar. 
2) Prep all of your vegetables, set aside.
3) Mix tuna, mayo, garlic, and sriracha in a bowl.
4) Prepare the sauce by combining all the ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender.
5) To serve in a bowl, put the rice at the bottom, followed by the vegetables, tuna mixture, and top with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
