Sushi Bowl

If you are a fan of sushi, this is a great way to experience all of your favorite sushi ingredients, without all of the tricky rolling. The rice forms the base of this bowl and then you add all of those great sushi toppings, like avocado, nori and edamame. I like to use marinated tofu as the protein for this bowl, but you can also use some salmon broiled with teriyaki sauce. Top the bowl with some panko crunch, spicy mayo and some extra soy sauce or teriyaki sauce. This recipe is more of a formula than an exact recipe, so use your favorite veggies and toppings.

Roasted Shisito Peppers

Shisito peppers seem to have replaced edamame as a favorite appetizer at trendy Asian restaurants these days. But, you don’t have to eat out to enjoy these delicious sweet and spicy treats. I make these for parties all the time and guests flock to them. The best part is, they could not be easier to throw together in the last minute!
