SWEET AND SPICY SUSHI BOWL

Sushi bowls are so easy to make and taste delicious! Throw in all your favorite sushi ingredients into a bowl, drizzle over a spicy Sriracha sauce and you have a meal that everyone will love. I love mango and sweet potato, they're two of my favorite foods! I thought I would incorporate them into this sushi bowl recipe and it was a success. This bowl is a perfect balance of healthy fats, protein and carbohydrates.

3-4 organic carrots
1-2 organic sweet potatoes

 Instructions: 
SUSHI BOWL
Start by cooking your brown rice or rice of choice by following the instructions on your rice package. While your rice is cooking, slice your avocado and chop carrot, cucumber, sweet potato, and mango all in the same shape that you prefer, I chose to cut them into strips. the sweet potato can be steamed, baked or grilled. I grilled the sweet potato until they turned soft and added water throughout the cooking process to help speed up the process. 
SRIRACHA TAHINI SAUCE
Combine sriracha, tahini, lime juice, and tamari in a small bowl and whisk until well combined and desired consistency.
ASSEMBLE SWEET AND SPICY SUSHI BOWL
Start by putting your brown rice on the bottom of your bowl, place your sushi bowl ingredients around the brown rice with your choice of seaweed or soy paper, sprinkle over sesame seeds and drizzle over the sriracha tahini sauce. Enjoy for dinner, take it to-go to school or work and ENJOY a healthy, nutrient dense meal!
