What's cooking? Wednesday - Sushi bowls

This is my 100th post!!!

 My husband loves to make sushi and is really quite good at it.  Unfortunately, I'm not fond of some of the ingredients in traditional sushi so I would pick mine apart to eat only the "good stuff".  It took me a while but I realized one day that I could take the rice and other fixings that I like and have a sushi bowl. A win-win solution!

The following is loosely based on the California Roll although it's gone through a lot of modifications throughout the years.

Sushi Bowl (for about 4 servings)
4 cups cooked rice.  You can use any kind of rice.  When my husband makes sushi, I use his short grain white rice but when I'm just making it, I use long grain brown rice
2 avocados, chopped
1 bunch green onions, cut into small pieces
1 cucumber, peeled and cut into slices and then quartered
about 1 pound cooked chicken*, shrimp, salmon, smoked salmon, or crab meat

Divide all ingredients into 4 bowls.  Serve warm or cold.  Have soy sauce on the side.  That's it!

*Grilled chicken -
2 thawed chicken breasts
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. BBQ sauce
about 1 T. water

Combine soy sauce, BBQ sauce and water in ziploc bag.  Add chicken breasts and let marinate for about 1/2 hour in the refrigerator.  Grill chicken until done.  Slice thinly.

I love making this!  It's fast, easy, economical, fairly healthy, and easily adaptable or modified. 


  1. Way to go... 100 posts! We love your blog! :)

  2. I really have to try this!!! It looks really similar to hawaiian haystacks without the cream of chicken sauce and different toppings...

  3. does have similar ingredients yet tastes totally different. Hope the family likes it!
