Learn how to build your own delicious vegetarian poke bowl, made with tofu and served with spicy mayo.

Traditional poke hails from Hawaii and is generally made with raw, diced skipjack tuna or octopus. Over the years, however, ahi tuna has gained popularity, and as the dish made its way to the mainland U.S., other adaptations of the dish emerged using salmon and shellfish.

For this vegetarian option, we spice up the tofu with wasabi paste, ginger and soy sauce.
