Tuna Sushi Bowls (Perfect For Meal Prep!)

by Heather

Tuna sushi bowls give you all the delicious sushi flavors, without the effort of actually rolling sushi! We’ll deconstruct sushi into easy to make sushi bowls. A base of jasmine rice starts it off, then we add a sriracha mayo tuna mixture, plus all the crunchy veggies! Top off with nori for that signature sushi flavor and the easiest sushi bowls are ready for you!

Tuna Sushi Bowls

Tuna sushi bowls make for a quick, healthy, and easy dinner. I love that you can get the rice started (this rice cooker is my favorite way to cook rice), and while it cooks, prep the veggie and tuna mixture.

It’s a super customizable meal! We love to serve each component in its own bowl at the table, then let everyone pick what they’d like to add-in.

This is a really great option when you’re serving kids tuna sushi bowls. They pick what would make their perfect sushi bowl!

I’m super intrigued by this! I LOVE sushi, but of course making rolls is pretty time consuming.

I LOVE sushi and this is such a great idea! I’ve made it before at home years ago but it was always so much work. This looks a ton easier and super tasty!

This is such a great idea! I mean, who really wants to make sushi?? Not many people, that’s for sure. It’s difficult. But this? Much easier, plus all the wonderful taste. I love it.
