Bowl over with Kikkoman and Tilda

Healthy comfort food doesn’t get better than this: juicy prawns and vibrant fresh veg on a bed of fluffy rice mixed with a fragrant, flavourful sauce…

Bowl food is having a bit of a moment in the UK – and with little wonder. It’s the ultimate comfort food: fast, fuss-free and full of flavour. The trick when building bowl food is to think in threes: start with a delicious grain base, top with a fresh combo of fish and vegetables, and finish with a flavour-packed dressing or sauce.

A star sauce

Kikkoman’s new Poke Sauce, which has been created from a base of Kikkoman’s naturally brewed soy sauce, is a savoury sauce made with fragrant toasted sesame oil, a hint of lemon juice and a dash of spicy chilli.

A nice rice

Nutty and wholesome Tilda Wholegrain Basmati rice is the perfect base for bowl food. It’s super tasty and ideal for soaking up all the flavours of the toppings and sauce. What’s more, it’s a source of fibre, making it the perfect nutritious accompaniment for this recipe, right, and all your favourite dishes.
