The latest food trend, all the cool kids are going nuts for…poke! It sounds weird, but trust me, it tastes absolutely amazing. And now you can make it at home with my super easy poke bowl recipe.
Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish pronounced poh-keh. It’s like sushi. Only so much better! Poke is served in a bowl so there’s no faffing around with nori sheets (ain’t nobody got time for that!). Bursting with bright, fresh veggies, poke bowls are super healthy and totally Insta-worthy. Plus my recipe is gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free (yep, ordinary sushi rice has sugar in it… crazy right?). Poke bowls may be healthy and delicious, but they also happen to be the perfect weeknight meal. In fact, you can throw this baby together in 15 minutes. It really is that easy. And if raw fish eeks you out, don’t let that stop you. Make your poke bowl with smoked salmon, canned tuna or even tofu – problem solved!
Wanna taste what all the fuss’s about? Seriously, you should! Give my easy poke bowl recipe a go. I’d love to know what you think in the comments below.
