Deconstructed Sushi Bowl with a Ginger dressing

A love a good salad bowl, this one sure is filling and bursting with flavour.  Its also a snap to put together, and its a great way of getting rid of leftover rice.

Now I’m not a big fan of leftovers or rice, I actually might have a phobia towards rice, thanks to my Aunt, that always told me if I ate rice I would get big boobs.  For some reason this traumatized me for years.  Apparently not eating rice works too.  The leftovers thing, well I just don’t like having a lot of food clutter in my house, by food clutter, I mean ways of getting me to over eat and regret it, so I like to make perfect amounts of food, so I don’t pig out in a day.  So obviously rice is the one thing, that can clutter up my house and I won’t eat it, unless its jazzed up to be a delicious and easy sushi bowl.

This is a versatile recipe, that can be made to your taste.  I added avocado to my bowl, after I took a photo, and it made a delicious sushi buddy.
