Spicy Beet "Tuna" Poke Bowl- Vegan, Plant-based, Healthy Alternatives

Updated: May 18, 2021

I love Poke Bowls! Vegan Poke Bowls that is. They're fresh, flavourful and light.

Poke bowls are a Hawaiian dish that consists of marinated raw fish served over rice and fresh veggies.

However, making a vegan version to this popular dish couldn't be easier!

These vibrant poke bowls consists of spicy beetroot "tuna", seasoned brown rice and a spicy mayo sauce. They're garnished with a heaping of fresh veggies and micro greens. These bowls have everything to satisfy your Poke cravings.

See below for the step-by-step recipe to make these super easy and delicious Poke Bowls.

Spicy Beet "Tuna"


  • 1 Cup Beets, medium diced

  • 2 Nori Sheets

  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil

  • 1- 2 tsp Sriracha (I used @rolandfoods sriracha which contains no fish sauce)

  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds

  • 1 Tbl Fresh Chive, chopped


  1. Tear nori sheets into rough strips, toss with diced beets and add them to a steamer basket over a pot of water. (Note: the water should be filled right below the basket but should not come through the basket).

  2. Turn on the stove to medium heat and steam the beets until tender, or to your desired texture.

  3. Place the cooked beets into a mixing bowl and remove the nori sheets (you can shred these up and use for garnishing your poke bowl).

  4. Add the remainder of ingredients, then mix it all up until the beets are properly coated in the seasonings.

Seasoned Rice


  • 2 C Brown Rice, cooked - I used @lueandperez Brown rice.

  • 2 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar

  • 1 tsp Agave

  • Pinch salt to taste


  1. Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and toss together until properly combined.

Spicy Mayo sauce


  • 2 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 tsp Sriracha- I used @rolandfoods

  • 2 Tbl Sesame Seeds

  • 6 Tbl Vegan Mayo- I used @followyourheart veganaise.


  1. Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and stir well to combine.

To Assemble The Poke Bowls

  1. Add one cup of rice to each bowl, top each with a 1/2 cup of spicy beet "tuna." Then garnish with cucumber ribbons, shredded carrots, micro greens. Top it off with your desired amount of spicy mayo sauce.
