Sushi is one of the greatest foods ever. There’s just something so satisfying about goodness wrapped in seaweed and rice. It’s like a hug of umami and carbs.
Make this sushi bowl at home for a quick sushi-flavor fix. You can use whatever vegetables you like. I used mixed chopped vegetables and cucumbers. Asparagus and more classic sushi vegetables work, as well, but feel free to get creative.
Avocado, tempeh, and/or edamame give the bowl some staying power, and drizzling ginger sesame dressing, and/or soy sauce makes it extra delicious.
