Sushi Bowl

So you just got home from a long day of doing things and you don’t want to putz around the kitchen.  There’s not really anything in the fridge that can make a meal.  You have a piece of bell pepper, half a cucumber, some carrots, and an avocado.  Fear not!  This bowl will utilize all of those ingredients (and a few more staples you should have in your pantry) to make a big bowl of goodness.  You can also spice this recipe up any way you want!  That’s the great thing about bowls.  You can basically throw anything (that is a plant) in them and it’ll taste delicious.  Let me know what you think!
