Vegetarian Poke Bowl with Tofu, Avocado and Coconut Brown Rice

These Vegetarian Poke Bowls are made with tofu, avocado and coconut brown rice. Unlike traditional Hawaiian poke, these take after the build-your-own poke bowl restaurants that are super popular. They're made with my favorite spicy mayo yum-yum sauce that's ultra addicting. It's the perfect recipe for easy lunches, meal prepping, and warm weather picnics.

For the Spicy Mayo Yum-Yum Sauce

  • Combine mayo, sriracha, sesame oil, sugar, and garlic powder in a small bowl and mix to combine. Add more sriracha if you like things on the spicier end!

For the Bowls

  • Distribute the Coconut Brown Rice into four bowls. Top each bowl with equal parts kimchi, cucumber, edamame, and avocado. Sprinkle avocado with salt.
  • Next add tofu and a drizzle of eel sauce and the spicy mayo yum-yum sauce.
  • Top the bowls with crunchy asian noodles, fried onion bits and cilantro.


If you're not serving the bowls immediately and are packing them into meal container prep boxes - leave out avocado until day-of eating.
