Poke bowls make a healthy, light lunch or evening meal, they’re ideal for summer when the weather is hot and you don’t feel like being in the kitchen. This recipe is for a tuna poke bowl. The novelty pink sushi rice and edamame are cooked in the Thermomix but you could also use a rice cooker.

The other day my daughter showed me a cute Instagram image of coloured sushi rice.  I knew straight away that I wanted to make this colourful tuna poke bowl with a novelty pink rice.

What is a Poke Bowl?

Did you know that Poke is actually a Hawaiian dish? The name refers to the cubed pieces of marinated raw fish which is traditionally an essential ingredient in the recipe. The recipe was developed to use up the offcuts of premium sushi grade fish after the days catch. The Poke bowl traditionally starts with a base of rice, then the marinated raw fish is added with any other available ingredients.

This recipe makes four very generous serves and is super easy to make. The second time I prepared this dish I made a vegetarian bowl and arranged the ingredients directly into lunchboxes. The dressing was kept separate in a small ziplock bag until lunchtime. Feel free to load the rice up with all your family’s favourite toppings for a personalised, healthy dish.

Tuna Poke Bowl Substitute Ingredients

As I said initially, this recipe like a blank slate. Once you’ve cooked a delicious, seasoned rice it’s possible to tailor the recipe to your own personal taste.

Substitutes

  1. White Rice FOR brown rice or cauliflower rice
  2. Green Salad leaves FOR Dry Slaw
  3. Edamame FOR Green Peas
  4. Sushi Tuna FOR Sushi Salmon or cooked Teriyaki Chicken
  5. Roasted Nori Sheets FOR Bonito Flakes
  6. Pickled ginger FOR Picked Diakon
  7. Kewpie Roasted Sesame Dressing FOR Kewpie Mayonnaise
  8. Sushi Rice Seasoning Sprinkles FOR Black or white sesame seeds
*I was able to find all the ingredients to make these bowls in Woolworths. I have provided a few links for some of the unusual products. These aren’t affiliate links, they’re simply so that readers will know what the product looks like.

How to Make Purple Pink Sushi Rice

Three images showing the step of making Pink rice for Tuna Poke Bowl

I produced the purple-pink rice colour by boiling a small amount of purple cabbage with the rice. To reduce food waste it’s best to use the damaged outer leaves of the cabbages and any parts that would normally be trimmed from the cabbage and discarded.

Rice Cooker Method

  1. Place 320g washed sushi rice to rice cooker
  2. Add 650g water, 60ml rice wine vinegar, 1 Tbs sugar and 1 tsp salt.
  3. Chop 60g purple cabbage and wrap in a muslin cloth, add to the water.
  4. Turn rice cooker on.

Thermomix Rice Watchpoint

If you’re making this recipe in the Thermomix it’s best not to leave the machine alone!

There is a chance the Thermomix may vibrate as you cook the rice, especially whilst the cabbage is raw and being moved around by the blades. This will settle down as you cook the rice and cabbage. If you don’t like the vibrating simple blitz the cabbage again. The smaller the cabbage leaves are the less machine vibration.
