A sustainable poke substitute
If you've ever had a traditional, Hawaiian poke bowl, you know how satisfying they are. It's basically sushi in a bowl, but better.
The only problem? Finding sushi grade fish in large quantities is expensive and hardly sustainable.
My solution? Use fish in moderation. Instead of buying the large "serving size" most traditional recipes require, these soy free poke bowls use mango and avocado to bulk things up and add amazing flavor.
When sliced consistently and marinated in sauce with the tuna or salmon (I'm using tuna), the avocado and mango cubes mimic the texture and taste of the fish.
The result is just as delicious, more sustainable, and much more affordable.
Lazy sushi lovers, unite!
Making sushi at home is fun and all, but who has time for a bamboo mat, sticky rice, and even stickier fingers?
These soy free poke bowls are just as tasty as your favorite gourmet sushi roll, and can be thrown together on a weeknight.
Just cube your fish, avocado, and mango, and toss in your sweet and spicy marinade. Serve over rice with some raw veggies and dinner is served!
Customize with toppings
The most fun part of making your own gluten and soy free poke bowls is getting creative with toppings. This is how you can tailor the bowls to your own personal taste and preference.
Here are some of my favorite toppings:
- Thinly sliced cucumbers
- Pickled ginger
- Seaweed slices
- Black sesame seeds
- Sliced scallions
These soy free poke bowls are gluten and soy free thanks to one of my all time favorite ingredients, coconut aminos.
You can find my favorite brand here on Amazon, at Trader Joe's, or at most grocery stores.
