The deconstructed sushi bowl is hands down, one of my favorite meals of all time!

  • it takes less than 20 minutes to prepare
  • only cooking required is the rice
  • colorful veggies make it aesthetically pleasing
  • fiber, phytonutrients, protein and healthy fats
  • it travels well so great to pack for lunch
  • it’s got all the goodness, texture and flavor of sushi
  • and NO ROLLING required!!

That’s really all I got!  So if the sushi take out is draining your wallet and you want to spare yourself the frustration of sushi rolling, this recipe is for you.  Fast, simple, nutritious, delicious, sushi (but not sushi). I hope you enjoy!
