  3. If making regular sushi rice, cook according to package directions. 
  4. Prep all vegetables for bowls. Be sure to steam or boil edamame beans for 2-3 minutes.  Set aside and let cool while prepping other ingredients.
  5. To make dressing, whisk all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. 
  6. Assemble bowls and enjoy!
