Do you love sushi? Then you'll LOVE these spicy tuna "poke" bowls! This healthy homemade recipe is made with canned tuna (instead of raw Hawaiian ahi) for easy prep, and it's bursting with delicious Asian flavors like spicy wasabi mayo, sweet eel sauce, pickled veggies, whole grain rice, avocado and umami-rich seaweed. Plus, it's so good for you--high in protein, fiber, healthy fats and nearly every nutrient imaginable. Gluten-free, too! Lunch just got a lot more exciting!

For the eel sauce
For the spicy mayo
For the "poke" bowls
  • 2 cans albacore tuna in olive oil I recommend Bela Brand Seafood
  • 2 cups organic brown rice cooked; I recommend Jasmine or Sushi rice
  • 1 cup organic leafy greens
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1/2 cup pickled carrots I recommend Farmhouse Culture's ginger carrots
  • 1/2 cup organic edamame shelled
  • 1/2 cup organic Persian cucumbers diced
  • 1 jalapeno cut into rings
  • 1/4 cup organic scallions diced
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
  • 1 sheet organic roasted nori (seaweed) cut into small strips
  1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the ingredients for the eel sauce. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick and sticky. Pour into a glass bowl and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large glass bowl, combine the ingredients for the spicy mayo. Whisk to combine. Add the canned tuna and break up with a fork, tossing with the spicy mayo to mix thoroughly. 

  3. To assemble the bowls, evenly divide cooked rice among four bowls. Top with leafy greens. Add spicy tuna, avocado, carrots, edamame, cucumbers, and jalapeno rings. Garnish with scallions, sesame seeds and seaweed. Drizzle with eel sauce. Serve and enjoy!
