A note about serious food allergies

Sushi may immediately bring visions of raw fish and slabs of wasabi, but there are other flavors to celebrate beyond the obvious. Tofu seared in sweet teriyaki joins cucumbers and carrots doused in seasoned rice vinegar, as well as avocado and spicy Sriracha mayo. Topped with sesame seeds, this is just the bowl to complete your sushi flavor education.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using shrimp, pat dry and season all over with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 5, cooking until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using diced chicken, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 5, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using ahi tuna, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tofu in Step 5, cooking until tuna reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. Tuna is often enjoyed medium-rare (pink in the middle). For medium-rare, cook 1-2 minutes per side. Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with 1½ cups water and rice to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner and set aside covered. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Line a plate with paper towels. Drain and cut tofu into ½" dice. Place on towel-lined plate, and top with more paper towels and another plate. Set aside to press, 5 minutes. While tofu presses, trim cucumbers and cut into ¼" rounds on an angle. Combine mayonnaise and Sriracha (to taste) in a mixing bowl and refrigerate until plating. After 5 minutes, season tofu all over with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Salad

    In another mixing bowl, combine cucumbers, matchstick carrots, vinegar, 1 tsp. olive oil, and ¼ tsp. salt. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Prepare the Avocado

    Halve avocado around the pit. Remove pit by carefully tapping pit with the blade of a sharp knife so it sticks. Gently twist knife to release pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Cut into ¼" slices.

  5. 5

    Cook Tofu and Finish Dish

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add tofu to very hot pan and stir occasionally until tofu is browned all over, 6-9 minutes. Add teriyaki glaze and stir until tofu is fully coated. Remove from burner and season with ¼ tsp. salt. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping rice with salad, tofu, and avocado. Garnish with sesame seeds. Serve spicy mayonnaise on the side for dipping. Bon appétit!
