Low Carb and Staying on Trend!
Poke bowls are all the rage right now from New York to LA. Everybody’s loving the layers of flavors in one, portable, snackable bowl. Many places have opened up catering to just poke bowls themselves where you can customize your mix-ins as you would a salad! You can choose from things like seaweed, cucumber, onion, mangoes, and edamame. You can even switch up the meat to different kinds of fish, shrimp, scallops, chicken, or even tofu!
Poke bowls originated in Hawaii and are essentially a dish of raw fish marinated in soy sauce, ponzu or sesame oil. The variations are endless but a few things are key. The base usually consists of a grain such as rice, brown rice, or quinoa. Unfortunately for us low carbers, that’s a red flag. Fortunately for us, Miracle Noodle exists – and they make rice too! Miracle Noodles are made with konjac, a fibrous root vegetable that’s used as a thickener in many vegan recipes. It’s low carb, gluten-free, and zero calories. How could we not try it out with our Spicy Tuna Poke Bowls?

We chose some quintessential keto mix-ins like avocado and Sarayo sauce. If you haven’t tried Sarayo yet, you’re missing out! We first tried it when we received our first Keto Krate last year and fell in love with it. It reminds us of the spicy mayo we get whenever we go out for sushi. We’ve gone through about 4 bottles already and thanks to Keto Krate, we got a few of them in our monthly delivery! Come to think of it, we also received our first delivery of Miracle Noodle with Keto Krate. It just goes to show how many new staples in our kitchen came from the expertly curated products and effort that goes into each ‘Krate’. Check out Keto Krate’s website if you haven’t yet:
One of the best things about poke bowls is that they require little to no cook time. The only cooking needed is for the Miracle Noodle rice and that’ll run you about 5 minutes – totally doable. We buy our fish from Trader Joe’s in their frozen section. Their ahi tuna steaks are delicious and very affordable. We’re also partial to their Silverbright salmon fillets. Also found at Trader Joe’s: frozen, shelled edamame beans! We decided to throw some in our poke bowls as well to really make our dinner feel like a sushi roll in a bowl.
Let us know what you’d throw into your poke bowls!
- 1 lb fresh ahi tuna
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 avocados
- 1/2 cup shelled edamame
- 1 bag Miracle Noodle Rice
- 1 bunch scallion
- 1 jalapeno (optional)
- 1/4 cup Sarayo
- salt and pepper
- black and white sesame seeds
- To start, cube the fresh tuna into small chunks. Add them to a small bowl and pour in the soy sauce and sesame oil. Let the tuna marinate in the fridge for about an hour.
- Take your bag of Miracle Noodle Rice and empty it into a fine mesh strainer. Rinse the "grains" for about 15 seconds. Then add them boiling water and let them boil for 2 minutes.
- Pour the boiled rice back into the strainer. Cook the rice in a dry pan on medium heat until they've dried out a bit, about 5 minutes. Let them rest while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
- Peel and core the avocados and cube them to about the size of your tuna chunks. Add them to a deep mixing bowl. To them, add the shelled edamame and the cooked Miracle Noodle Rice. Finely chop the scallion and jalapeno, if using, and add them to the bowl.
- Add in the marinated ahi tuna and add a squeeze of Sarayo. If you don't have Sarayo, use 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon sriracha and the juice of half a lime.
- Season with salt and pepper and mix gently to combine. Garnish each portion with black and white sesame seeds and serve.

Miracle Noodle rice is expensive by my standards. I would prefer to add jicama “rice” that adds probiotic inulin and other great fibers and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. It’s not exclusively about avoiding carbs to me. I like to do so with what I consider less processed, more true foods that provide the same low carb value without the high cost along with what I consider better nutritional profile than just being a processed, low carb substitute. But that’s just me.
There are many options you can explore if Miracle Noodle is too expensive. Cauliflower rice is always a great substitute. We love the texture of Miracle Noodle though, so we use them every now and then.
Do remember there are about 12 grams of sugar in an average jicama so that’s a deciding factor for many people.
