Quinoa Edamame Sushi Bowl With Tahini Wasabi Dressing

We love this creative and easy recipe to enjoy nori without making sushi rolls by one of our favorite bloggers, Shannon Leparski from her "The Glowing Fridge" blog.

Serves 2

Quinoa Edamame Sushi Bowl

A delicious deconstructed vegan sushi bowl full of flavor and paired with the perfect tahini wasabi dressing. 


  1. 1 8oz. package extra-firm organic tofu
  2. 2 tablespoons tamari
  3. 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  4. 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  5. 1 cup shelled edamame, uncooked
  6. 1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
  7. 1 avocado, chopped into bite-size pieces
  8. 1 green onion, chopped small
  9. 1/2 of a cucumber, chopped
  10. 2-3 tablespoons pickled ginger, chopped small
  11. 2 sheets of vegan nori, thinly sliced/chopped into pieces
  12. 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. 1 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon wasabi
  2. 2 teaspoons water
  3. 1/4 cup tahini
  4. 1 tablespoon tamari
  5. 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar


  1. Drain package of tofu. Cut tofu into bite size pieces. Lay 2 paper towels (or one clean kitchen towel) on a large plate. Spread out tofu on plate. Lay 2 more paper towels or kitchen towel on top of the tofu. Place a fairly heavy book on top and set aside for 30 minutes. (This absorbs excess water in tofu)
  2. Cook quinoa and edamame according to directions and set aside.
  3. When tofu is ready, place in a medium-sized bowl and pour 2 tablespoons tamari over. Mix until all tofu is covered in tamari. Heat a pan/wok on medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon sesame oil. When pan is hot, add tofu and cook until golden brown on all sides (about 5-10 minutes depending how hot the pan is) You want it to be crispy and golden!
  4. After all vegetables are cut/prepared, start making the dressing. Make a wasabi paste by mixing the wasabi powder and water in a small bowl. Then add the tahini, tamari and rice wine vinegar and whisk until well combined.
  5. Now we can assemble our sushi bowls. First add quinoa to bowl, then vegetables, tofu, pickled ginger, nori and sesame seeds. Pour dressing over, mix around and enjoy!


This bowl can be served warm or cold, either way is delicious.

Miso Caramel


Miso Caramel with Miso Master Organic Sweet White Miso

Miso Caramel* with Miso Master Organic Sweet White Miso

Yield 1 Pint

Salted caramel is so delicious ~ especially with our Miso Master Organic Sweet White Miso!



  1. In a heavy saucepan set over medium-high heat, stir together sugar and water. Without additional stirring, bring mixture to a boil. Use a wet pastry brush to wash down any sugar crystals that form on the sides of the pan. When sugar becomes a deep golden brown and wisps of smoke just start to form, remove pan from heat.
  2. Once off the heat, carefully pour in the cream, which will cause the caramel to bubble. Stir to combine. If the caramel seizes up and hardens with the addition of the cold cream, then put the pan back over low heat and stir until the caramel is liquid again. Whisk in the miso. Allow to cool slightly before pouring into a lidded container. Store in the refrigerator.
  3. Remelt the sauce by putting some in a ramekin and microwaving it on high for 30 second intervals until hot and liquid-y. Serve over ice cream, pound cake, or just eat it cold out of the jar with a spoon. *from
