The Sushi Rice Bowl is basically a sushi roll turned inside out in a bowl… no special sushi rolling skills required! Filled with healthy veggies, brown rice and seaweed, this bowl makes for a perfectly fortifying meal to help get you through the winter months. Add in some marinated tofu, tempeh or seitan you’ll have a well-rounded one pot meal, or serve it as a side to go along with some Seitan & Vegetable Stew for an Asian themed feast.
