If you love sushi but don’t want the hassle of making it, you should try this California Roll Bowl!
It has all the flavors of a California roll but it’s much easier to make.
Just chop everything up and add it to the bowl!
California rolls typically have cucumber, crab or imitation crab and avocado. All things I love!
I also made sushi rice, added carrots, nori and mixed the crab with a delicious Sriracha mayo sauce.
This recipe makes two California Roll Bowls. Of course you could easily double it necessary.
One thing I will recommend is weighing out your avocado. I used 2 ounces of avocado for both bowls which was a lot of avocado! And it was only 3 points.
If you’ve never made sushi rice it’s actually quite easy. Simply mix together rice vinegar, salt and sugar then microwave it until the sugar dissolves – 30 to 60 seconds.
Then you pour that over the cooked rice and mix it together. Now you have sushi rice!
If you follow purple you can use brown rice instead of white rice for 0 points.
These California Roll Bowls are 7 points each for blue and purple, 8 points for green.
You could also lighten these up by using riced cauliflower instead of regular rice.
Another great thing about these bowls is you don’t have to cook anything. They’re easy to make and ready in minutes!
Yield: 2 servings (7 points per serving with blue and purple, 8 points with green)
- 1 cup rice, cooked
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 oz. white lump crab meat (I used canned)
- 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha
- 1/2 cucumber, chopped (seeds removed)
- 2 oz. avocado
- 1/4 cup shredded carrots
- Sesame seeds and soy sauce
Add the rice vinegar, sugar and salt to a small bowl. Microwave for 30-60 seconds, until the sugar dissolves. Mix together and stir into the rice.
Divide the rice into two bowls.
Add the crab to a bowl. Add the light mayonnaise and Sriracha and stir together. Divide the crab mixture into the two bowls.
Add the cucumber, avocado, carrots and seaweed to the bowls.
