Island Poke Bowl
Tuna, Avocado And Edamame Poke Recipe

Melissa says: "I hope that this poke bowl inspires you to develop your own poke bowl once you've learnt about the bowl basics. It has a healthy fat, a protein, a grain, greens and a few different pops of flavour such as seaweed and mango. If you adopt these simple principles, the flavour combinations are endless."






1. Cook the brown rice as per the packet instructions. Once ready, set aside.

2. In a small bowl, add all the ingredients for the dressing and mix well.

3. Now it's time to assemble the bowl. Don't be afraid to get creative with the way you build this bowl. Beautiful and unique presentation is a great way to connect with your food.

4. Once you have assembled the ingredients, drizzle over the dressing and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Season to taste and tuck in!

Health tip:
Edamame beans are an excellent plant-based protein and are high in calcium and iron. Visit your local Asian supermarket if you can't find them at the grocery store. They add the perfect pop of colour and crunch to a meal.
