Vegan Poke Bowl No Tofu

Vegan Poke Bowl Without Tofu

Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish that consists of sliced (hence the name) raw fish. It is served as an appetizer or main dish, and is very popular in other parts of the world, especially now when the trend of “healthy” food is at its peak.

Although the ingredients are mixed in the original, the Poke bowl or bowl contains rice, fresh vegetables, tuna, seaweed sauce and the like, arranged in segments. There are, of course, vegan variants of these bowls, and today I bring you one. Preparation could not be simpler, although it may seem the opposite given the amount of different foods in the bowl.


As a source of protein, instead of tuna, I added mango cubes for juiciness, edamame beans, avocado, hijiki seaweed, fresh vegetables and “poke” sauce from Kikkoman. You can also use soy sauce, tamari, coconut sauce, srirachu… whatever you prefer, but the point is to feel the “sea” taste in the sauce, and you can achieve this by adding ground, dried nori seaweed.

If you use ready-made “Poke sauce”, then it is not necessary to add nori seaweed because it already contains algae powder, which is why it has this specific taste.

Arrange the poke bowl however you want, whatever ingredients you want. The point is that it is colorful, pleasing to the eye and of course delicious. In doing so, count on putting in a source of protein and carbohydrates to make the meal complete.

And now, the recipe!
