Recipe for Vegan Salmon Rice Bowl

This vegan salmon rice bowl recipe is easy & super delicious! If you miss salmon or the taste of fish, definitely make my vegan flakey salmon; if you don’t like the taste of fish, you can omit it (or just the kelp/seaweed).

This recipe is very quick especially if you already have some leftover rice on hand. You can simply whip up the Vegan Flakey Salmon in about 10 minutes or less and then the rest is a piece of cake.. or rice? 😀


All you need is some cooked rice, soy sauce, avocado, toppings of choice and vegan salmon (which I’ll share how to make in 10 mins). Feel free to add in other vegetables and switch up the sauces to fit your preference!

Once we’ve made our Vegan Flakey Salmon, we can simply put together our bowl by mixing some soy sauce with rice and adding our simple toppings.

How To Make Salmon Rice Bowl Vegan

How To Make Salmon Rice Bowl (Vegan)

1. Prepare your vegan salmon rice bowl by making your rice and your vegan salmon flakes first. Make your rice accordingly and start making your vegan salmon flakes by grating the extra firm tofu into flakes using a cheese grater (i use the big holes in my grater) and transfer into a mixing bowl.

2. Next, mix together rice vinegar and miso paste until smooth in a bowl.

3. Then, add in beetroot powder (optional for pink colour), kelp powder (optional for fishy taste), garlic powder, salt, turmeric and better than bouillon (or around 1/2 cube vegetable bouillon cube, crumbled). Mix well until smooth.

4. Add in water to thin out the mixture (1-2 tbsp of water) and crumble in a nori sheet with your fingers. Mix well and pour the paste into the grated tofu. Mix well to evenly coat.

5. Heat oil on medium-high heat on a non-stick pan and add the pink tofu salmon flakes. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently until cooked to your desire. Enjoy right away or store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.

6. Next, create your vegan salmon rice bowl by placing 1 cup of cooked rice into a bowl.

7. Add soy sauce and mix well. Top with half the vegan salmon flakes (or all of it) into your rice bowl with avocado slices.

8. Drizzle on vegan mayo and sriracha and top everything with sesame seeds. Also, recommend topping it with chopped green onions!

Enjoy your vegan salmon rice bowl with a side of Vegan Kimchi and/or some roasted seaweed.
