More and more individuals are identifying as vegan or vegetarian. In fact, a plant-based lifestyle is slowly becoming mainstream, with 3.2% of Americans (7.3 million people) following a vegetarian diet (according to Vegetarian Times). More and more restaurants are dedicated to offering vegan and vegetarian options on their menus, even if they aren’t vegan specific restaurants. Grubby’s Poke and Fish Market in Carlsbad is proud to offer a variety of vegan and vegetarian options, providing a menu that is inclusive to all. If you’re interested in learning more about the vegan and vegetarian options available at Grubby’s Poke and Fish Market, give us a call at (760) 828-9074.

Building a Vegan or Vegetarian Poke Bowl

The great thing about a poke bowl is that you can completely customize each and every ingredient that makes its way into your meal. That way, you can build a poke bowl that perfectly matches your diet and nutritional needs, including vegan, vegetarian, or even gluten-free bowls. We will go step by step to help you build a perfect vegan bowl.

Step 1: A Vegan and Vegetarian Base

All five of the options that act as the “base” for your bowl are vegan and vegetarian, so you can choose whichever base sounds best to you. Choose from either white rice, mixed greens, brown rice, cucumber noodles, or tortilla chips, or maybe an intriguing combination of a few of these different bases.

Step 2: Vegan and Vegetarian Proteins

When it comes to choosing a protein, your vegan and vegetarian options are a bit more limited. A majority of the protein options are fresh caught fish and seafood, however, we do have one vegan and vegetarian option. Grubby’s Poke and Fish Market offers organic tofu, giving you a delicious protein boost to build the rest of your bowl around.

Step 3: Choose Your Sauce

There are a plethora of different sauces to choose from to give your tofu bowl some punch and flavor! Almost all of our sauces are vegan, excluding our spicy mayo and cucumber mayo option, which both contain eggs. Otherwise, you still have a wide array of sauces to choose from, including our signature Grubby’s Poke Sauce, ginger ponzu, peanut sauce, gluten-free “basic batch” vinaigrette or eel sauce.

Step 4: Vegan and Vegetarian Toppings

Like a bowl of frozen yogurt, your bowl will not truly be complete and ready to eat until you choose your toppings. We have a unique and eclectic selection of toppings to choose from, allowing you to make a bowl as unique and special as you are. Some of our vegan and vegetarian toppings include avocado, green onion, wasabi, fried onion, fried garlic, furikake, cucumber, ginger, seaweed salad, edamame, mango, pineapple, and mandarin oranges.
