By now you are probably tired of looking at pictures of your friends' poké bowls on social media. However, there really is a reason behind why this bowl has suddenly become so popular. It is not only healthy and surprisingly tasty, but it is even easier to make than it looks. So, I decided to make my own.

However, I made some minor changes to the recipe because, let's face it, not only are we sometimes too lazy to do things the way we should, but we've all been through a few weeks where we just can't find the time to buy groceries. Here's my own version of poké with items I found in my pantry. 


- 2 tablespoons soy sauce

- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

- 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

- 1 cup of brown rice

- 1 canned tuna

- 1 avocado

- 1/4 onion

Step 1

Start by cooking the rice. After, grab a small-sized bowl and mix together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes.

Step 2

Add the canned tuna and onions to the mix.

#Spoontip: When adding the tuna, don't forget to drain the water from the can first.

Step 3

Stir them all together until the tuna is covered with the mixture. Let it marinate for 7 minutes. Now, remember to scoop the rice into a bowl. As you do this, slice the avocado and add the chunks to the mixture. 

To finalize this step, mix them all together in the bowl and you are done!
