Georgia has made a poke bowl with tuna

Georgia's Tinned Tuna Poke Bowl

I was in Hawaii a few years ago, and I remember a Hawaiian Guy telling me Poke Bowls were the local dish. He told me what was in it, and I instantly turned my nose up. I also left Hawaii not having an Acai Bowl either. But, in the last year or so, with Poke Bowls becoming a huge trend, my regret for not eating them (or Acai Bowls) in Hawaii has grown, just as much as my love for Poke Bowls. Depending on where you live, there’s a growing number of Poke Bowl restaurants opening, and cafes including Poke Bowls on their menu; my personal favourite being salmon, with a brown rice base, and all the toppings. I’m still a bit iffy about eating raw fish at home (I’ll leave that to the professionals) so I made a Poke Bowl with Tinned Tuna – which is a lot cheaper, easier and a more readily available source of protein.


  • 1 Large Tin of Tuna
  • 100g Green Beans
  • ½ Red Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 Medium Lebanese Cucumber (diced)

  • Pickled Ginger to Serve
  • Avocado to Serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Cut the tortilla into strips and baked until crunchy
  3. In a fry pan, sauté the beans until well done
  4. Drain the tuna and mix with mayonnaise
  5. Meanwhile cook the rice, following packet directions
  6. Build your bowl by placing the rice on the bottom and top with leafy green (of choice), salad mix, corn, beans, baked tortilla chips, tuna.
