It really is an ode to Macha Cafe in Milan. During my recent trip to Milan, I swear, I ate here every single day while I was in Milan. Every single day! The simplicity of these nourishing dishes, is something I wrote home about by the way of Instagram. I still day dream of the amazing meals I had at Macha.

What You'll Need
Salmon Sushi Bowls
1-1 1/2 pounds wild-caught salmon, sushi grade
1 avocado, sliced
1 cucumber, sliced
1 cup edamame
1/4 cup pickled ginger
3 green onion, sliced
bonito flakes, to taste

2 cups short grain white sushi rice
3 cups Water
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut aminos (or 1 tbsp sugar)

What You'll Need To Know
Prepare Sushi Rice. Rinse the rice until water runs clear.
Add to water in a medium pan, stirring a few times until water comes to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until water has evaporated.
Allow rice to cool slightly. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, coconut aminos or sugar and salt. Heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stir until sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour vinegar mixture over the rice and stir until combined.
To assemble Salmon Sushi Bowls, add sushi rice to the bowl. Top with a portion of sliced salmon, avocado, cucumber slices, green onion slices, edamame, pickled ginger, and a few pieces of nori. Drizzle with chili oil. Garnish with sesame seeds and bonito flakes if desired.
Recipe makes 4-5 servings.
* I omitted the edamame since I’m soy-free
