This bowl is made from all the ingredients commonly used to make plant-based sushi, but it doesn’t require any nori-rolling skills. It contains fresh mango for a delicate, sweet flavor; cucumber, carrots, and cabbage for crunch; avocado for creamy, healthy fat; and a spicy dressing for balanced heat. If you’d like to incorporate even more vegetables, replace the white or brown rice with cauliflower rice.
