Here’s the deal. We’ve got sushi rice (which you can easily make in an instant pot or rice cooker so you don’t have to turn your stove on!) that’s seasoned with rice wine vinegar - step 1!! We’ve got PLENTY of my favorite Mission Avocados - step 2! Then add that all the fresh crunchy vegetables like cabbage, cucumbers, edamame, mango and carrots - step 3! Finish it all off with a herby soy dressing and voila! The most perfect Vegetarian Avocado Sushi Bowls you could imagine. And yes, of course you could add some raw or cooked fish to this, dealers choice.

Not a day goes by without an avocado in the What’s Gaby Cooking world. It’s been that way since as far back as I can remember. I mean, remember back in 2012 when I was recipe testing my Absolutely Avocados cookbook and I’d hose 3-4 avocados a day…. clearly I was onto something. 

Avocados are just a way of life in this household and on this website!

You’ve seen them grace chips and dip, get added into bowls, topped on a burrito… you name it, I’ve done it. They are the ideal ingredient for your summer recipes! Today they are front and center in this cooling and refreshing Vegetarian Avocado Sushi Bowls and I am here for it! Mission Avocados are loaded with healthy fats, keep you full longer and just taste downright amazing. They can take on any number of flavor profiles and you know I’m all about that multipurpose life.

They are standing in for any fish in these sushi bowls today as I’m keeping it light and bright and summer friendly! So cheers to the weekend! This feels like the perfect way to ease into a lazy weekend at home. Friday night dinner is handled! Make these, you won’t be disappointed!
