Vegan Poké Bowls

January 29, 2018

Poké bowls, originating from Hawaii traditionally feature a fish salad made with tuna, soy sauce, sea salt, green onions, maui onions and limu. It’s also just served over white rice without any fancy salad stuff (I believe that’s what Western culture did to the humble Poké bowl). The best thing about these bowls is that really, you can do it with any meat you like. Technically speaking, it’s not a Poké bowl, but because all the cool kids are doing it, I thought I would get in on the action too.

Tahitian Raw ‘Fish’ Salad aka Poisson Cru

November 30, 2017

Nope, this ain’t a bad joke, this dish is 100% plant-based & cruelty-free! But yes, it 100% looks, feels and almost tastes like raw fish! This Tahitian salad is a traditional Polynesian dish I’ve grown up eating, and to this day, it’s still my favourite salad. When I went vegan I thought I had to give it up and was devastated... A bit of brainstorming and lots of test-tasting and anything can be veganised! Here’s proof! Ready for take-off to paradise?
