Mango-Papaya Spinach Poké Bowl
PREP TIME10 min
COOK TIME30 min
1 cup sprouted short grain brown rice
1 ¾ cups water
½ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup mirin (rice wine)
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce, tamari or coconut aminos, plus more for drizzling (optional)
2 mangoes—peeled, seeded and cubed
1 small papaya—peeled, seeded and cubed
4 cups baby spinach
1 small watermelon radish, trimmed and sliced
1/4 cup toasted pistachios, crushed (1 tbsp for each bowl, for garnish and added crunch)
Toasted wasabi nori sheets, for garnish
Place rice and water in a medium saucepan. Add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until all the liquid has absorbed (gently tilt pan to check). Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and fold in ¼ cup rice wine vinegar and the mirin. Toss with sesame and hemp seeds.
In a medium bowl, mix remaining rice wine vinegar with soy sauce. Add in mangoes and papaya and stir.
Fill each of 4 bowls with about ½ cup rice, a handful of baby spinach, and ¼ cup dressed fruit. Top with watermelon radish.
Garnish with crushed pistachios and shredded nori sheets. Sprinkle with additional soy sauce, if desired.
