Why now Sushi Bowl?
Sushi bowls have been present in all social media for a long time now. Sushi bowls are also often referred to as poke bowls. So if you’ve never heard of sushi bowls, you should at least have heard of the word poke bowl by now. There are plenty of them on Instagram , but also more and more often on the menus of Asian restaurants. The word poke is a Hawaiian word meaning „to cut or chop“. On the poke bowl, it refers to chunks of sliced and marinated fish tossed on rice and flavored with sauce.
Serve the sushi bowl cold or warm on aromatic tea rice?

You get a hearty bowl of sushi rice with so many delicious flavors and textures. Who could resist? It’s so easy to cut everything up, then layer individual bowls together and serve.

For the sushi bowl:
- Rinse the brown rice well and bring to a boil in a saucepan with 1.5 times as much water as rice. Cut open the tea bag with green tea and put it in the rice pot. Once the water is boiling, turn the heat down to low and let the rice cook gently for about 15 minutes with the lid closed, until the water has completely evaporated or has soaked into the rice.
- While the rice is cooking, prepare the vegetables as follows. Cut the cucumber, radishes and carrots (peeled) into wafer-thin slices.
- Blanch edamame in boiling, lightly salted water for 3 minutes.
- When the rice is done cooking and has absorbed all the water, whisk rice syrup with rice vinegar and salt. Put this mixture under the rice.
- Once the rice is done, assemble the sushi bowl with all the veggies.
- Top everything with sesame and pickled ginger.
- Serve with extra soy sauce.
