Spicy Tuna Brown Rice Bowls

Let me tell you about this crazy craving I get once in awhile. When I lived in Korea, I used to eat these triangle rice wraps when I was pressed on time and starving. I always thought of them as Korean sandwiches. You could get them filled with all sorts of things: spicy pork belly, kimchi, spam, and even good ol’ fashioned American tuna salad — with mayo and everything. My favorite, though, was the one filled with spicy canned tuna. Oh my goodness.

There was something about the tuna, rice, spice combo (even with the mayo) that just made me crazy. It’s the easiest thing in the world to make, too. But I decided to take it a step further — or backwards — and just throw it into a rice bowl because I’m lazy instead of performing food origami. I threw together a tuna, Sriracha, mayo concoction, tossed it atop brown rice, added some sliced avocado, strips of roasted seaweed, and shredded kale. Voila! Feeling fancy? It would be amazing with raw tuna, too. Speaking of which, I’m feeling long overdue for some poke…

Quick, filling, and nutritious-ish.

Fun fact, I’m a tad self-conscious about how awful that photo turned out. It’s all sorts of out of focus, plus you can actually see a kale stem! I know they say to err is human, but I feel I need to make it up to you. Please accept this photo of my noble beast of a cat, Stravinsky, as a sort of palate cleanser.

Ah, now isn’t this better?
