VEGAN POKE BOWL
Considered as the most instagrammable dish today, the poke bowl became so famous in the past years that you can find it everywhere! Restaurants, raw concept eat-in or take-away, this delicious fresh dish is easily adaptable to different cultures.
The poke bowl was born in Hawaii. “Poke'' means “to cut crosswise into pieces” in Hawaiian and the traditional poke bowl was a very simple mixture of cubes of raw “ahi”(tuna), marinated in a bit of “shoyu”. It doesn’t have to be necessarily prepared using tuna fish, a large variety of possibilities is available, such as: “tako” (octopus), tofu, shrimp, scallop or salmon, mixed with chilli paste, “limu” (vitamin-packed seaweed), crushed kukui nuts, avocado, sesame oil and green onions. Fish can be easily replaced by a vegan option, such as sweet potato, squash or any other ingredient more suitable to your personal taste. It is definitely a super food as it gathers all the important nutrients in a dish, therefore wearing the nickname: “Detox Poke Bowl” :-) Enjoy the freshness!
