Vegetarian Tofu Poke Bowl with Shiitake Chile Mushrooms

Vegetarian Tofu Poke Bowl with Shiitake Chile Mushrooms

This vegetarian twist on poke is perfect for a plant-based lifestyle, or if you’re just not a fan of sushi-grade fish! Traditionally, poke is made with raw fish, but really there’s no right or wrong. The tofu is marinated in a tangy chile garlic sauce that’s sure to wake up your taste buds! Topped with shiitake chile mushrooms, this poke bowl is so hearty, fresh, and flavorful.


Poke Bowl Ingredients
  • green onion finely chopped
  • quinoa
  • seaweed salad
  • shiitake chile mushrooms (see below)
  • 4 oz tofu cubed & marinated (see below)
  • Tofu Marinade
  • 1 tsp chile garlic sauce
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • Shiitake Chile Mushrooms
  • 6 Tbsp broth
  • 1 tsp chile sesame oil
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • pepper (to taste)
  • salt (to taste)
  • 5-6 oz shiitake mushrooms
  • Procedure

  • Cut tofu into cubes.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine tofu marinade ingredients. Whisk to integrate.
  • Toss tofu in marinade and allow to sit for 30 minutes or longer, to allow the flavors to absorb.
  • While tofu marinates, prepare shiitake chile mushrooms. Remove stems from shiitake mushrooms and thinly slice lengthwise.
  • Heat broth in a skillet over medium heat and whisk in garlic paste. When steaming, add mushrooms, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove lid and allow to cook for 4 more minutes.
  • Drizzle on olive oil and chile sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Assemble your poke bowl! I used quinoa as a base, topped with seaweed salad (that I bought at the store), my shiitake chile mushrooms, marinated tofu, any leftover marinade as sauce, and chopped green onion.
