I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the poke bowl is super in right now. The first time I tried it was in an oyster restaurant. There was nothing but meat and seafood, but I really wasn’t worried as I love going to all different types of places — every time I discover something new.

In the oyster bar restaurant…at the bottom of the menu, there was a small section where the restaurant was advertising their poke bowls. My eyes lit up as I saw all the different possible flavor combinations. According to the waiter, when making this traditional Hawaiian dish, there is no wrong way. All the combinations are delicious.

And honestly, he couldn’t have been more right. The Poke Bowl is like every other bowl; it always turns out amazing. You can make a super hippie bowl (rice, vegetables, and greens) and have it be delicious if you make a Mexican poke bowl with pico de gallo, avocado, beans, and rice, even better. Seriously, they never turn out wrong. There is no bad poke bowl recipe.

You can already imagine how I fell in love with the vegan poke bowl I ordered and how millions of possibilities rushed to my mind. The best part was that once I had discovered it, I saw it everywhere, even in bon appétit.

Tips, tricks &other RECIPES.

  • The poke bowl traditional recipe is: the base (rice or noodles or greens) + protein(tofu or salmon or any fish of your choice) + dressing + toppings (seeds, avocado, chili, onion, seaweed, herbs).
  • I made it vegan by instead of putting raw fish I substituted in watermelon salad.
  • I also have a recipe for Watermelon Gazpacho that goes great with this summer heat.
  • But if you aren’t ready and want to introduce Asian flavors into your household slowly, this recipe is perfect for you.
