Traditional poke is made with raw, marinated fish and Asian spices and seasonings: Tofu, it turns out, is the perfect substitute. It’s light and velvety texture mimics the bite of fatty fish like salmon and tuna.When marinated with soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil you won't be able to tell the difference.

Ingredients

For the Tofu Poke Bowl

  • 1 Package firm tofu, such as House Foods
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 Teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 Teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 1-Inch knob fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 Scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 Avocado, chopped
  • 2 Cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 Cups cooked spinach

Directions

For the Tofu Poke Bowl

Drain and dry the block of tofu with paper towels. Wrap the block of tofu in a thick layer of paper towels and place on a plate. Lay another flat-bottomed plate (or small cutting board) on top of the tofu and place a can or two of beans on the plate/cutting board to weigh down the tofu, which will help press excess moisture from it. Let sit for 30 minutes.

Cut the tofu into ½-inch-thick slices. Cut each slice into ½-inch cubes.

In a medium bowl, whisk the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, garlic, ginger, and scallions. Add the tofu and toss gently to coat. Cover and let the tofu marinate for 30 minutes.

To serve, divide the brown rice, cooked spinach, and tofu among 4 bowls. Drizzle any remaining marinade evenly over the bowls and top them with avocado and additional chopped scallions, if desired.
