Hawaiian-Inspired Rice Bowl

A few weeks back, I went to visit a local farm stand where I picked out some radishes. I used the radish greens in my saag bhaji recipe. The rest of the radishes were stored in my refrigerator, waiting to be used. Radishes can last a long time in the fridge. However, I needed space for new dishes! I decided to use those radishes in a poke bowl.

Poke bowls are made with sushi-grade fresh fish. The most common types are tuna and salmon. I don’t mind eating raw fish. I’m a huge sushi fan. That doesn’t translate so well with the rest of the family. My husband and son don’t care for raw fish. I decided to mimic the tuna flavoring and mix it with radishes. It was quite delicious!

Feel free to use gluten free alternatives in this recipe. You can also substitute the mayo used in my house sauce for vegan mayo.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl, combine radishes, oil, salt, and pepper. Toss mixture well. When done, spread mixture in a parchment lined sheet pan. Don’t overcrowd.

Bake for 30 minutes. Bake till radishes are cooked through. Dice radishes into medium size once cool enough to handle.


Marinated Radish

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Taste for seasoning.

Teriyaki Sauce

Combine teriyaki sauce and sugar in a small sauce pan. Cook until nearly heated through for a minute or so.

Mix cornstarch and water together in a cup. Stir well until no lumps show. Add this to the sauce pan. Stir well. Cook until the sauce thickens.


You can find my house sauce recipe from the linked post. It’s located near the bottom of the recipe. You can use the house sauce and teriyaki combined or only one.

Place rice in the middle of bowl. Arrange vegetables around rice in groups. Sprinkle rice seasoning over the plated bowl and serve with the sauce.
