No doubt you’ve seen at least 700 of these colourful bowls all over your instagram feed of late and perhaps wondered, are they as good as the hype suggests? The answer is simply, YES! Poke Bowls (pronounced POH-keh) are a Hawaiian style cuisine, traditionally made up with a base of rice and layered with delicious fresh vegetables and raw fish. Quick, easy and ‘cooking’ free, these simple to make bowls of wellness will add a little colour and a whole lot of nutrients to your lunch or dinner routine.
Prep + cook time: 35 minutes. Serves 2
1 cup buckwheat, cooked as per packet
2 cups sashimi-grade raw tuna / salmon steaks
1 cup red cabbage, julienned
1 cup edamame beans, shelled
1 cup cucumber, diced
1 radish, sliced thinly
2 tbs tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1 green shallot, thinly sliced
In a small bowl add the tamari, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and sesame seeds and mix well.
Cut your choice of raw fish into chunks and place in the bowl to marinate in the fridge for half an hour.
Create your bowl by layering the buckwheat as a base, then adding the rest of the prepared ingredients.
