I’m a huge fan of simple meals, especially when I’m the chef! I was thrilled when I first learned to make sushi. It was so much easier than I thought it would be. However, there are days when I still can’t be bothered with the extra step of rolling it all together. (Don’t judge me.) That’s why I was thrilled when I heard about sushi bowls: all of the same ingredients and flavor minus a couple extra steps. This recipe is for my favorite sushi combo, avocado and sweet potato, but it’s pretty much foolproof if you want to play around with the ingredients.

*Makes one serving, but you might want to make more even if you’re dining alone!

Ingredients:

2 servings of rice (I usually use instant brown rice, but use whichever type you like.)

1 Sweet Potato

1 Small Avocado (Guacamole works, too!)

1/3 Sheet of Nori

Optional Fixins:

Sriracha

Soy Sauce or Tamari

Nutritional Yeast

Additional Veggies

Black Sesame Seeds

Directions:

  1. Boil a small pot of water.
  2. Peel the sweet potato (optional) and cut it into bite-sized cubes.
  3. Carefully drop the sweet potato cubes into the boiling water.
  4. Prepare the rice according to the package’s instructions. (You might want to do this step first if you are not using instant rice.)
  5. Cut your avocado into cubes while the rice and sweet potato cook. This is also a good time to chop and/or cook any other veggies you are using.
  6. Once the sweet potato and rice are cooked, place them in a bowl along with the avocado.
  7. Break up about 1/3 of a sheet of nori into the bowl. (The amount is really up to you!)
  8. Top with Sriracha, soy sauce, sesame seeds, and any other optional fixins.
  9. Enjoy!

Tip: Wait until you’re ready to eat before cutting and adding the avocado. It does not store well for very long.

This is the nori I use. I got it on Amazon. I have no affiliation with either company. I just thought a recommendation might help if you have never bought nori before.

I made a salad variation of this recipe over the summer. I just put all of the ingredients on a bed of greens and added in some chopped tomatoes and coleslaw mix.
