Method:

  1. Cook the rice according to package instructions. Once cooked, stir in the vinegar, liquid sweetener, and salt. Set aside to cool.
  2. To cook the asparagus, fill a saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the desired tenderness is reached. Drain and transfer to a bowl of ice water for 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Drain.
  3. To assemble the bowls, start with ¼ of the cooked rice. Add ¼ of the vegetables, saving the avocado and pickled ginger for last. Top with ½ tablespoon of the black sesame seeds, some nori, and a drizzle of dressing. Repeat with the remaining bowls.

For a bit of dessert after the sushi bowl, try out this banana ice cream! It’s super simple to make and perfect for satisfying a sweet craving.
