Sushi night at home just got a lot easier with this California Roll in a Bowl recipe. All the fresh and light flavors of a California roll, but in a deconstructed bowl version. Best of all, it can be made in less than 30 minutes and can be made keto, paleo, and even whole30




  1. Whisk together the rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Add the cooked rice to a mixing bowl and pour the vinegar mixture over top. Toss to mix. 
  2. Divide the rice between two bowls. Arrange half of the crab, avocado, seaweed, cucumber, and carrots on top of each of the bowls. Alternatively, can mix up all of the ingredients before placing on top of the rice.
  3. Drizzle some Yum Yum sauce over top and then sprinkle on the furikake.
