Last night I set out to make a Poke bowl. Instead of sashimi the plan was to include my caramelized tofu. I pulled up the recipe and started cooking the rice and pickled carrots. I’ve only ever had one Poke bowl so this seemed reasonable. Half way through preparing the remainder of the ingredients to layer into the bowl I realized….I was on the Banh Mi recipe!
