Poké bowls are all the rage right now and it seems like there is a poké shop popping up on nearly every NYC corner. Traditionally pretty simple — poké is raw fish tossed with a soy dressing and served over rice. I’m a big fan of this version but I wanted to share a genius at-home version. It’s perfect for fish lovers and vegetarians alike.
I made this poké bowl with my friend Gabby for our supper club at her adorable cafe baba cool in Forte Greene. In this beet poké, we steam the beets and marinate them in a soy dressing. It transforms them into an unexpected vegetarian version with the red of the beets mimicking the deep beautiful red of high-quality tuna.
I’m such a fan of these marinated beets – perfect in poké – but also in other vegetable bowls throughout the week or as a simple side for any meal. It makes a large batch so unless you’re feeding a crowd you can count on some leftovers, or simply half the marinated beet recipe.
