Rate this Recipe


The Poke:
1/2 small watermelon, cubed
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup tamari or low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons agave syrup
1 teaspoons siracha to taste
The Veggies and Protein:
2 Persian cucumbers, sliced
1 bunch radishes, trimmed and sliced
1/4 small purple cabbage, sliced thin
1 avocado, sliced or cubed
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
2 carrots, peeled and shaved thin
8 oz. San Diego Soy Dairy Teriyaki Baked Tofu, cubed
Coconut Rice:
2 cups Jasmine rice
1 5 oz. can coconut milk
2 cups filtered water
1 teaspoons agave syrup
1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
Extra Accompaniments:
2 green onions, sliced thin
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
1/4 bunch cilantro, stems removed
1 jalapeno, sliced thin
1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Combine the rice vinegar, tamari, olive oil, sesame oil, agave, ginger, and siracha in a small bowl, whisk to combine. Pour the mixture over the cubed watermelon, cover it and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Place two cups of rice in a medium mixing bowl, add 4-6 cups of water to rinse it. Stir the rice to release the excess starch. When the water becomes milky and cloudy drain it and transfer it to a medium saucepan. Pour the canned coconut milk into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup, add enough water to equal two cups then pour it into the rice. Add an additional 2 cups of water, the agave syrup, and salt. Bring it to a boil, cover, and simmer 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed.
  3. Prepare the remaining vegetables while the rice is cooking. When the rice is done remove the poke from the refrigerator, drain off the excess marinade and set it aside.
  4. When ready to serve place a generous cup of the hot rice in a bowl, top it with a serving of the poke and each of the additional vegetables and tofu. Garnish it with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds, sliced green onion, sliced jalapeño, cilantro, and a wedge of lime. Serve with additional siracha and a drizzle of the remaining marinade.
