Have you guys checked out my Super Simple Homemade Sushi recipe yet? If you love sushi you definitely need to check that post out! Ever since I’ve discovered the easy way to make sushi at home, it’s become one of my go-to, quick weeknight meals. It takes me a half hour total to prepare and makes for great leftovers the next day.
Making sushi at home used to intimidate me, but I’ve come to realize that it can be prepared a couple of different ways, both of which take no time at all. I showed you the first way in my Super Simple Homemade Sushi recipe mentioned above. Now I’m going to show you another super quick and easy way to enjoy sushi at home without all the time and effort.
Introducing the Deconstructed Vegan Sushi Bowl!!
Okay, so we all know meals like this aren’t a novel idea. I’m sure all of us have eaten burrito bowls or created taco or fajita salads at home. These are all just spin offs of popular entrees that allow us to enjoy all the flavors of our favorite dishes without as much effort.
That’s exactly why I love this Deconstructed Vegan Sushi Bowl. To make it, you just top some pre-made (cold even!) steamed rice with whatever veggies and protein sources you have on had, crumble some nori wraps on top, and sprinkle everything with soy sauce. You get all the delicious flavors of sushi without having to do any of the spreading or rolling. It’s the best of both worlds.
For me, I love my sushi with carrots, bell pepper, cucumber, dried tofu and avocado, so that’s what I put in this Deconstructed Vegan Sushi Bowl. However, you can choose what your favorite vegetables are and use those! Garnishes are also a great way to jazz up your sushi bowl. Green onion, cilantro and red chili flakes are some of my favorites!
