veggie sushi bowl

Does this really count as a recipe?

Every so often All the time I share recipes on S&S that are so simple and easy, I have to ask myself that question.

From the start, I wanted the food I share here to be both delicious and attainable. We all have our favorite blogs and cookbooks that share mouthwatering images of restaurant worthy food that we'd undoubtedly love to eat but are way too intimidated to attempt. I have several of these types of blogs bookmarked for purely food porn purposes and can count the number of times I've actually made one of their recipes on one hand. 

However, my intention with S&S was always to provide practical plant-based recipes that are so approachable, you could come across one while browsing the Internet at work, and go home and make it that night. Weekdays aren't for pulling out your tablespoons and measuring cups, they're for throwing a bunch of things in a bowl, mixing it together, and creating something delicious. This sushi bowl is more of a "real life recipe" than a capital Recipe because it contains no measurements and an ingredient list that can almost entirely be swapped out for other favorite foods.

So why the bowl and not the traditional sushi preparation? Whenever I see sushi recipes I can't help but think of that scene in the Sex and the City movie where Samantha spends all day making hand-made sushi for Smith for Valentine's Day only to have him come home late and ruin the surprise and all her hard work. Making your own sushi is basically the definition of intimidating, time consuming, and unnecessary. It's better left for the professional chefs at restaurants in my opinion.

So let's just take all the best flavors and ingredients in veggie sushi, throw them into a bowl, top with soy sauce and call it a day? I've never been too big of a seaweed fan so this preparation is kind of a win-win for me, but if you do like seaweed feel free to throw some sheets on your bowl as well for the full effect.

- Brown, white, or sushi rice
- Edamame, shelled
- Cucumber
- Carrot
- Radish
- Avocado
- Micro greens
- Black Sesame Seeds
- Soy sauce

Cook rice according to package instructions and add to bowl with remaining ingredients. Drizzle with soy sauce and enjoy!
