Hoisin Tofu Sushi Bowl - Vegan-friendly sushi bowl everyone can enjoy! Filled with sweet and sticky Hoisin Tofu and refreshing vegetables!



For the rice:

  • 3 cups cooked sushi rice
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the sushi bowl:

  • Hoisin Tofu (I used about 1/2 cup per bowl)
  • 1 Persian cucumber, cut thinly 
  • 1 Avocado, diced
  • 1 Carrot, shredded or cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup cooked edamame
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced radish
  • Seaweed strips, sesame seeds, thinly sliced green onion (for garnish)
  • Soy sauce 
  • Wasabi (optional)


  1. Add vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small bowl and mix until sugar and salt are all dissolved. You can microwave the mixture for 10 seconds if you want sugar and salt to dissolve fast. 
  2. Mix the seasoned vinegar with cooked sushi rice. Set aside the rice but cover with a kitchen towel so the rice won't dry out. 
  3. Prepare all of your vegetables. 
  4. Assemble the bowl - place the rice on the bottom of the bowl (about 1.5 cups). Add all the vegetables on top of the rice and add tofu in the middle. 
  5. Garnish with seaweed paper strips, sesame seeds, and/or green onion. 
  6. If you are using wasabi, mix a small amount of wasabi with soy sauce (I used 1/4 teaspoon of wasabi with 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce) and pour over the assembled sushi bowl.
  7. Mix and enjoy right away.


  • If you don't have rice vinegar, replace it with apple cider vinegar. I have done this before and my rice still turned out delicious.
  • This sushi bowl is very customizable. If you don't have all the vegetables I used in the bowl, no worries. Use what you have in the fridge but I highly recommend adding avocado and cucumber for that classic sushi bowl taste. 
  • If you are not a fan of wasabi, do not use wasabi. I personally love wasabi flavor but you are more than welcome to just use soy sauce.
