Recipe Notes

Topping Ideas: wasabi peas, shredded carrots, cucumber, sriracha mayo, sliced radish, microgreens, fried shallots, cilantro, tomato, jalapeno, mango chunks, seaweed, pickled ginger, shredded purple cabbage, etc. 

Be sure to add crunch! Fried shallots, carrot, cucumber, or wasabi peas are some of our favorite options.

Drizzle with a spicy sauce: try combining 2 tablespoons mayo or Greek yogurt with 1 tablespoon Sriracha and a squeeze of lemon to drizzle over the bowl prior to serving.
