“Sushi” bowls and peanut dressing recipe

This was so good! There’s actually no real sushi in the bowl pictured, I used an easy SteakUm for the meat eaters in my home. So it’s actaully more like a buddha bowl, but I like the name sushi bowl better.

A sushi bowl consists of: rice, protein (raw fish, or cooked protein of any kind), vegetables of choice (raw or cooked), some leafy greens, herbs, and a delicious dressing over everything.

Here’s the recipe for the dressing I made that goes so lovely on top of any sushi bowl. It has an Asian peanut-slant to it so we paired ours with onions, peppers, and panfried SteakUms with just simple salt and pepper.

Everyone assembled their own bowls and customized it to their liking—which makes for an easy family weeknight dinner.


2 cups cooked rice (we used white today)

1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes

1 green pepper

1 onion

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

4-6 slabs of SteakUm meat – (for meat eaters, or use any type of beans heated with onions and peppers


1/4 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter

2 tbsp sweet red chili sauce

1/8 cup soy sauce

1/2-1 tsp sesame seed oil

1 tbsp water

1 tbsp honey

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

MIX all ingredients except for the olive oil in a glass mason jar. Shake it up! Add oil, taste, and adjust seasonings to your liking. Pour over your personalized “sushi” bowl, as you would pour dressing over a salad. Enjoy!

Constantly on the hunt for natural, alternative ways to incorporate to stay healthy. Saved by grace. Lastly adventure and spontaneity are everything...oh, and coffee too.
