When I created these bowls, I have to admit… this wasn’t my intention for this recipe. BUT it ended up being better this way! I was seeking out to make Onigirazu, otherwise known as a sushi sandwich. Otherwise known as one heck of a culinary challenge way above my skill level at this point. Now, of course, that means that this will burn in the back of my mind until I can create the perfect sushi sandwich, but for now, I am super content and excited to share the recipe for these sushi bowls with you! Sushi bowls are totally underrated. When you don’t feel like (or know how) to roll your own sushi at home, but are still having that sushi craving… head for those bowls and load up your bowl in just 30 minutes!
So let’s take a closer peek. We have
⤐ Broiled Miso Eggplant
⤐ Edamame Hummus
⤐ Mango Chutney
⤐ Sesame Seeds
The flavor combination was surprisingly delicious (and I say surprisingly because I wasn’t quite sure how the flavors would all compliment each other). They are easy to make and you can be creative with how you make your bowl. I also rarely eat eggplant. Not sure why, because I like it. This was my first time (knowingly) trying Japanese eggplant. I LOVE the vibrant purple hue of these cuties as opposed to the dark purple traditional eggplant. I also didn’t realize how fast eggplant cooks when you broil them! I think I’ve steered away from making it because it just takes too long to bake. Another BONUS of this recipe! The edamame hummus is a great plant protein addition (and not to mention makes a fantastic snack with crackers if you have leftovers!). You see the trend here… these bowls are awesome. This recipe will fill your homes with the scent of amazing Asian cuisine and fill your bellies with delicious + nutritious food you’ll be craving again and again. Enjoy my dear friends!
