But what is a poke bowl?

The word “Poké” means ‘cut into pieces’ and it refers to slices or cubes of raw fish served in a bowl with rice, dressing, vegetables and seasonings. It’s a dish that originated in Hawaii and has received Japanese influences over the years.

This is a lighter version of the usual poke bowls that you get at a restaurant, with no mayonnaise or fried toppings. The vegan mayo is a great substitute and it has a delicious taste. The combination of avocado, sesame oil and spices gives this meal a special flavour and a creamy texture.

Although it may seem like a lot of work, this recipe is easy and quick to make once you get the hang of it. The only “complicated” part is making the rice. But don’t worry, the following instructions will help you make the perfect rice for your homemade poke bowl.

It is very important to follow the instructions very closely and use the exact quantities to make the rice. If you don’t get right the first time, don’t worry, practice makes perfect!
