For the Poke Bowls:

  • 4 cups steamed white jasmine rice (or brown rice or quinoa)
  • 2 cups greens, chopped
  • 2 avocados, halved, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced

For Garnish (optional):

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, garlic powder, ginger and crushed red pepper.
  2. Add tuna and mix to incorporate. Cover and refrigerate for 10 to 30 minutes. Before serving, mix in sesame and black sesame seeds.

Recipe Tip

  1. For a vegan version, use 1 (14-oz) package of tofu in place of the ahi tuna. Drain tofu of excess liquid and press to remove as much as possible. Dice into 1-inch cubes. Marinate as you would the tuna.
