The Nori Sushi Bowl is one of our most popular dishes served at our Bali Yoga Retreat. This delicious bowl is gluten-free and vegan, but you could easily add your favorite seafood to the mix instead of tofu. The bowl has all the delicious flavours of sushi, in a quick and easy to throw-together format, making it easy to prepare or even take with you to work during the week. The tofu and edamame offer a great protein hit, alongside healthy brown rice, plenty of nutritious vegetables, and the addition of healthy fats with the avocado.
Healthy Nori Sushi Bowl
For the Rice & Seasoning:
- 2 cups brown rice, rinsed well
- 2 sheets (8 x 8 inch) dried nori/seaweed
- ½ cup tamari or soy sauce per person
- ½ teaspoon salt per bowl
For the Bowl:
- 2 cups of frozen or fresh edamame (organic if you can)
- 2 large carrots, peeled into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler
- 1 large avocado, sliced into long strips
- 1 small cucumber, cut thinly into julienne sticks
- ½ cup arugula per bowl
- ¼ cup Shiitake mushrooms per bowl
- ½ cup snow peas per bowl
- Fried tofu sticks (use coconut oil to fry)
To prepare the rice, cook in a rice cooker or saucepan until fluffy.
Bring a small pot of water to boil and add the edamame beans. Cook until the beans are warm through (not longer than 5 minutes). Then rinse and drain well. If your edamame are still in their shell, pop the beans out and set aside.
To prepare the Shiitake mushrooms, cover them in hot water for 5-10 minutes until soft and then rinse and drain well.
To prepare the tofu, cut tofu cubes into “finger” slices, and heat a pan on medium heat with some coconut oil.
Then, prepare the ingredients to arrange in the bowl. Slice the nori sheets, julienne the cucumber, peel the carrot into ribbons, slice the avocado, and slice the shiitake mushrooms thinly.
Now, create your nori bowl. Start with a cup of rice, and then add everything around the rice in different sections. Add the nori seaweed on top.
Serve your tamari or soy sauce in a side pourer and use as needed.
Feel free to mix and match your ingredients as you like- get creative and have fun creating your own healthy bowl at home!
