Make Your Own Poke Bowls

with No Comments

Lately getting my whole family to agree on dinner has been pretty rough.  Even more so than normal. So, I thought I’d try something new – make-your-own poke bowls.  With enough options, the whole family is sure to love them.

Yes, there are a lot of ingredients, but most of them were just removed from a bag or jar and placed into bowls.  You could always keep them in their containers and then you have an easy clean-up as an added bonus.


  • Tuna, Chicken, or Steak
  • Sesame Oil
  • Avocado sliced
  • Carrots – shredded
  • English Cucumbers – sliced
  • Lettuce – I used an Asian Salad mix so the lettuce mix had sliced cabbage and came with those crunchy toppers as a bonus
  • Jasmine rice – any rice will do
  • Cilantro – cut
  • Kimchi – I used fermented vegetables from Wake Robin Foods 
  • Mushrooms – sliced
  • Green onions – sliced
  • Black beans
Ruby Ruben Fermented vegetables

Optional Sauces:

  • Soy sauce
  • Teriyaki
  • Sesame Ginger
  • Ranch – for the really picky eater
  • Sriracha
  • Yum yum sauce

Add sesame oil to the pan and cook your protein.  I pan seared yellowfin tuna for about 4 minutes a side and then let it sit for 5 minutes.  

Cook your rice.

Set out all the ingredients and let your family build your own bowl.  My littlest had a plain bowl of rice with tuna steak and cucumbers on the side.  But, the rest of us got more creative with the toppings and sauces.  Here’s what my poke bowl ended up looking like right before I stirred it up.

It was a hit!  Try it and report back if you used any different ingredients that were a success with your family.  We want to know!
