It. Is. So. Hot. Y'all. We are in a heatwave where I am from and finding the energy to make supper is hard, and finding something delicious, easy, that doesn't heat up the kitchen is even harder.
For supper tonight you must try this poke bowl, it is so quick and simple. Not to mention it is also very healthy, cost effective, and easily changeable based on availability and taste preferences.
Here's how I made & assembled it...
Make a delicious rice bed for your bowl.
Then start adding your veggies! Here we have some edamame.
Delicious, farmer's market carrots.
Pickled red onions.
Dress your bowl because it can't be naked!
My recipe served 3 adults, just add more rice if you have more people!
🔥Overall Oven Time: 15 Minutes 🍅Prep Time: 15 Minutes
2 Cups of Instant Rice
2 Cups of Water
2 Tbsp of Butter
1 Pinch of Salt
2 Sliced Green Onions
Pickled Red Onions:
1/2 of Large Red Onion
1 Tbsp of White Sugar
1/4 of White Vinegar
1/4 Cup of Hot Water
1 Pinch of Salt
Vegetables: (the amount you put in is personal preference/depends on how many people you are feeding)
Generous Squeeze of Sriracha/Mayo Dressing
Plant-Based Fishless Cakes (I used the brand 'Good Catch' and they were amazing!)
Generous Dose of Soya Sauce
Toasted Sesame Seeds + Sunflower Seeds
In a medium casserole dish add your rice, water, salt, butter, and green onion. Place in a oven set to 350 degrees and follow baking time on package. Mine takes about 15 minutes, and your end result should be nice and fluffy with no extra water.
While you are waiting for your rice- pickle your onions! This recipe is so good for being able to multi-task!
In a small container add vinegar, hot water, sugar and salt. Stir well so the sugar and salt dissolve.
Add your chopped red onion to your pickling liquid, cover and set in the fridge.
If you are still waiting for your rice, this is a perfect time to prepare your vegetables! I cut mine into nice, bite sized pieces.
Cook your plant-based fish cakes based on package instructions.
In the same pan you used for the fish cakes, toast your sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds.
Once your rice is cooked, evenly distribute in to bowls, and add your soya sauce over the top.
Now comes the fun part of assembling! I added enough veggies to fully cover the top of the rice. This is all based on your preferences... If you like a vegetable a lot, add more in! If you dislike something, take it out! It is very adaptable.
Add your plant-based cakes and give a healthy squeeze of your Sriracha/Mayo!
