How to Build a Poke Bowl

 

Poke bowls are definitely all the rage at the moment and for good reason. They are delicious. Full of nutrients. Packed with flavour. And the best part.... so easy to make at home. 

The key to building an awesome poke bowl is to get creative with ingredients and flavours. Find out how here.

 

1. Choose a base:

Brown rice, coconut jasmine rice, soba noodles, rice noodles or leafy greens (spinach, kale, rocket, wombok)

2. Choose a protein:

Traditionally speaking the the foundation of poke is good quality fresh raw fish such as tuna or salmon. However I also like to use poached chicken, or even tofu if you are vegan.

3. Choose a dressing:

The base of most dressings are going to be sesame or olive oil mixed with tamari, lemon or lime.

4. Add some extra stuff:

For extra nutrition, contrast and flavour add whatever else you like.

Fresh vegetables: smashed or sliced avocado, tomato, shredded carrots, bean sprouts, shelled edamame, or shaved radish.

A bit of Heat: Crushed wasabi peas or chillis (thinly sliced.)

Pickles: Pickled ginger, shiitake mushrooms, red onions, or cucumber.
