Chirashi -or- Sushi Bowl

Have you VegHeads ever made Chirashi? The word means "scattered" in Japanese; so basically chirashi is a one bowl meal with all the flavors of sushi and none of the rolling (I'm pretty bad at it, myself).

Just take all your favorite sushi roll ingredients and layer them on a bed of sushi rice (here's a basic recipe). I served this Chirashi with mung bean sprouts, avocado, jalapenos, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, carrots, smoked tofu, cucumber, baby corn, sliced nori wraps, mushrooms marinated in ponzu sauce (here's a basic recipe), extra ponzu for dipping, pickled ginger, and wasabi.
