Vegan On The Cheap: Sushi Bowl

Hi guys!  I went to Atlanta to visit my Dad, brother,and Stepmom the other weekend.  I was starving by the time I got there, so we went to the store to pick up some groceries for dinner.  We took Alex (my brother) with us even though he had already eaten a pizza for dinner (and no, I didn't say a slice of pizza, I said a pizza- that boy can eat!)

We picked up some couscous, frozen edamame, a cucumber, a red pepper, an avocado, some almond buter and a couple of bananas (not related but delicious).  We checked out (rather quickly- we went to the Sketch Master General Kroger to pick up the goodies) and went home so I COULD EAT.  As soon as we got there I immediately went into their kitchen and started cooking up a storm.  While the couscous cooked, I steamed the edamame and chopped all of the veggies and avocado (and ran to the bathroom- I got a large tea from Starbucks on the way to Atlanta) and dinner was done in 10 minutes.

Inspired by Pinterest
  • 1/2 cup couscous, dry or rice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 3/4-1 cup steamed edamame, shelled
  • Ponzu sauce, soy sauce, or tamari, to taste
Directions:  Bring the water to the boil and add grain.  Cover and remove from heat, letting sit for five minutes.  Steam your edamame and chop your veggies/ avocado while you wait.  Add cooked couscous to bowls and layer on top your desired veggies.  Serve with ponzu, soy sauce, or tamari.  Serves: 2-3.

But even though it took such little time to make, my brother was hungry by the time I was done.  I found a big bowl in their cabinet and scooped him a large serving with plenty of veggies and avocado.  Here's his serving:


Like I said, that boy can eat!!!

I've been trying to post those pictures for a while, but they've been so darn stubborn!  And I was so excited to share that bowl with you because my brother liked it, which means it was tested on more than just me!
