Vegan “tuna” poke bowl

Okay, so I was a little hesitant to make this recipe because I never even liked poke before I was a vegetarian so I was like why should I try it now? I’m glad I did because it is so unique and different! This is the second watermelon vegan “meat” recipe I’ve made and I’m a big fan.

Just a warning the marination process takes 24 hours, so plan ahead! Without further ado here’s a super easy vegan friendly recipe I’m sure you’ll enjoy. This recipe was inspired by @avantgardevegan who has really awesome vegan recipes.


Watermelon Poke 

1 Medium sized Watermelon, seedless if possible, peeled & cubed


2 tsp Tahini
6 tbs cup Soy Sauce or Coconut Amino’s
2 tbs Rice Vinegar
Juice 1/2 Lemon
1 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes
2 cloves Garlic
1 1/2 tbs Sriracha
Thumb Sized Piece Fresh Ginger
2 Spring Onions/Scallions
3 tbs Sesame Oil
2 tsp Sea Salt


+Pre heat your oven to 350 º F.

+Add the cubed watermelon to 2 non stick baking trays.

+Throw all ingredients into a blender or nutribullet & pour half of the marinade in the watermelon & massage it in lightly.

+Place the watermelon into the oven for around 45 minutes. Stir the watermelon half way through cooking.

+Once cooked add the watermelon to a mixing bowl with the rest of the marinade, stir well then cover the bowl & place it into the fridge to marinade for at least 1 day.

+After marinading, serve your watermelon poke chilled with sushi rice & your favorite garnishes.
