Sushi, anyone??

I LOVE sushi, but am no su-chef.  When Cory requested something Asian related for meal prep, I thought sushi would be a fun idea.  Then I realized that I have no idea how to make rolls, so I did a quicker version in a bowl! Way more simple and a quick meal prep! It involves canned tuna, and getting the wrong brand can not be very healthy.

If you’re not sure what brands of tuna to buy, check out this article I found for the dEATS on some good tuna!


Yields 1 serving

  • 4.5 oz canned Tuna
  • 1 TBS Siracha
  • 1 TBS Mayo
  • 1/3 cup Rice (cooked)
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 28 g carrots
  • 1/3 medium avocado
  • pinch of sushi ginger



  1. Cook rice: 1 1/4 cup of water per 1 cup of rice will make it a little sticky like sushi rice. Bring water to a boil, stir in rice, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  2. Cut cucumber and carrots. I peeled and shredded mine, but matchstick or any other shape you prefer will work!
  3. Mix drained tuna, siracha and mayo in a bowl.
  4. Slice or chuck avocado
  5. Combine all in a bowl/ container and WA-LA!



Enjoy! Xo Erica
