Vegan sushi bowl meal prep has all the flavors of sushi without the rolling! Four vegan lunch recipes ready in just 25 minutes.
After posting this Egg Roll In a Bowl last month, it got me thinking about other recipes that we can make easier by just serving up in a bowl! And the first thing that jumped into my brain was sushi.
We are big sushi fans, but our attempts at homemade sushi were less than stellar. My seaweed always seems dry, chewy and just not right. We’ve really reserved sushi as an ‘eating out’ option.
But today’s vegan sushi bowl meal prep recipe proves that you can still enjoy the flavors of sushi, without needing to roll anything at all!
Don’t forget to pin this post to save it for later!

How to make vegan sushi bowls
For this recipe, I decided to swap fish for edamame, and to be honest, I didn’t miss the fish at all! Let’s break down the steps for these vegan sushi bowls:
- Rice- I used basmati, but you could use any rice for this dish. After cooking, toss with some rice vinegar and seaweed (optional but adds a little more sushi flavor to the recipe)
- Veggies- I used radish, carrot and cucumber. To store your cucumber for 4 days, you may wish to slice in rounds (it will stay more moist that way).
- Edamame- I used frozen, shelled edamame. Simply thaw it out.
- Sriracha mayo- mix together sriracha with vegan mayonnaise. An alternative that would also be delish would be to add wasabi paste to the mayo instead of sriracha!
Do I serve these sushi bowls warm or cold? COLD! This is a great option if you don’t have access to a microwave!
Can I add salmon to this recipe? Yes, however I would recommend adding smoked salmon over raw salmon, unless you know you have sushi-grade salmon and that it’s safe to store for 4 days.
Can I swap the veggies? Absolutely! You could pretty much add any hardy veggie to these sushi bowls. Broccoli, cauliflower, and bell peppers might be good options.
