For the Quinoa Sushi Bowls:

  • 2/3 cup Dry Quinoa 
  • 1/2 tsp Dulse Granules (Optional
  • 12 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 4 small Radishes, thinly sliced 
  • 1 1/3 cup shelled Edamame
  • 2 Carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 23 Small Seedless Cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 2 Nori Sheets, cut into small pieces 
  • 1 Avocado
  • Orange Miso Dressing, below
  • Sesame Seeds, for garnish (Optional)

For the Orange Miso Dressing: (makes ~1 cup)

  • 1 large or 2 small Oranges, peeled (see notes)
  • 1 small Clove of Garlic
  • ½” Ginger Root
  • 1 tbsp Vegan Mellow Miso
  • ½ tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • ½ tbsp Tamari
  • ¼½ cup Filtered Water


  1. First, add the Dry Quinoa and 1 1/3 cups of Water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. While the Quinoa is cooking, wash and cut all of your Vegetables.
  3. Additionally, prepare the Orange Miso Dressing by blending all ingredients together in a high-speed blender for 60 seconds, or until smooth.
  4. Once 15 Minutes have passed, remove the Quinoa from the heat, and let stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. Then, stir in the Rice Vinegar and Dulse Granules, if you are using them.
  5. Divide all ingredients between two bowls, top with Dressing, and enjoy!


  • To remove some of the “bitter” taste from the Orange peel, I would suggest using a knife to cut the rind off of your oranges and remove some of the pith as well – almost as if you were going to supreme them. Here is a photo for reference.
  • Dressing leftovers will keep well in the fridge for up to 10 days.
  • If you prefer to have your Quinoa Sushi Bowls completely chilled, you can prep the Quinoa ahead of time.
  • These Quinoa Sushi Bowls are perfect for Meal Prep, though I would advise storing your Nori separately and add just before serving, or they will get soggy.
