Ahi Tuna Bowls




This meal is newer in our rotation, although a big “winner, winner chicken dinner,” as my family would say. This meal satisfies our craving for sushi on a weeknight and can be on the table in a jiffy. If you’re short on time, the microwavable jasmine rice can save the day. I typically start by steaming my rice. I prefer the Organic Basmati Rice in my Insta-Pot. I rinse and drain the rice, sauté with a bit of butter and garlic and then steam with equal parts organic chicken stock (but it's just rice so you cook your rice however you prefer!)



Then thinly slice the cucumbers, cut the red pepper into matchsticks, slice your avocado, slice your green onion tops and dump your edamame on your cutting board. Next, chop your Ahi tuna into cubes. When your rice is finished cooking, fill the bottom of your bowl with rice, sprinkle some cabbage on top, and then add your cucumbers, peppers, edamame, avocado, and tuna. Then sprinkle the top with green onions and Furikake. Finally, choose your sauce. The mildest and most preferred by my youngest is the Organic Toasted Sesame Dressing. The Gyozo dressing or soy sauce is always an easy and mild option as well. My husband and I prefer these bowls with my “spicy tuna” sauce (see recipe below.)

This bowl is easy and very fast. Depending on your rice cooking, you can have this meal on your table in 10-15 minutes. This bowl might be your family’s first experience with Ahi tuna, or if your family is like mine, it might be the inexpensive and quick bowl that helps you fulfill their habitual sushi cravings. Either way, I hope you enjoy it!!
