Recipe Steps

steps 4

2 h 18 min

  • Step 1

    Dice raw tuna steaks into 1X1 inch cubes. In a plastic bag, gently combine the tuna with the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame seeds, and chili paste. Let the tuna marinate for 2 hours in the fridge.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    To make the cauliflower rice, cut your cauliflower into small pieces and pulse them in a food processor until they mimic grains of rice.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    In a large skillet, saute the cauliflower in the olive oil with salt and pepper for about 3 minutes. This will be just enough to turn the cauliflower slightly golden without over-cooking it. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Set the “rice” aside to cool when it’s done cooking.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    To prepare your poke bowls, divide the cauliflower rice amongst 3 bowls. Arrange the spinach, roasted seaweed, cucumber, grated carrot, and ginger over the tops of the rice. Finally, distribute the marinated tuna amongst the bowls, drizzling any leftover marinade from the bag over the top. Garnish with green onion. Enjoy!

    Most soy sauce is not gluten free. This is important to note.

      As a substitute use Bragg's Coconut Aminos - totally gluten fee

    I plan on making this tonight, but will add avocado and swap red pepper flakes for the chili paste as I am not a spicy fan.

        I would freeze tuna first if you don't buy from fresh fish vendor to avoid parasites in fresh fish. Most sushi places do so. Word to the wise about any raw fish.

          Is something you can prep ahead if time? Or donwe serve immediately?

            This is best if served immediately. You may prepare the components of the bowl individually and save separately until you want to put together for your meal.

          What can I use instead of chilli paste?

            Some sriracha or crushed red pepper flakes could also work here! If you're not a fan of spicy, you can omit this ingredient as well.
