Low-carb poké bowl with carrot rice

I have been sharing a bit different recipes than usual on Karlijn’s Kitchen since I follow a SIBO diet. And today, I have another SIBO diet-proof recipe for you: a low-carb poké bowl with salmon.

No worries if these recipes are not your cup of tea, I will share normal low FODMAP recipes again too. But for now, it is nice for me if I can share some SIBO and low-carb recipes with you that fit my own diet.

And from what I heard from my readers, you are also interested in seeing SIBO-proof and low-carb recipes, so then it’s a win-win for now.

How to make a SIBO diet-proof poké bowl

The bi-phasic SIBO diet that I follow is a low carb low FODMAP diet. Poké bowls are one of my favorite kinds of meals, so I wanted to make a SIBO-proof version of those.

You can eat a little bit of rice on the SIBO diet, about 60 grams of cooked rice per meal, but not a lot.

Therefore, I decided to make the basis of the poké bowl with carrot rice. To make carrot rice, you simply put carrots in a food processor to make them into crumbs.

You can choose to make your bowl only with carrot rice if you want to have a low-carb poké bowl. Or you can add a little bit of white rice as well, to make the poké bowl a bit more filling.

For vegetables and toppings, I also add cucumber, red bell pepper, avocado, a nori sheet, and spring onion to the bowl.

As a protein source, I pick smoked salmon. But this low carb poké bowl also tastes great with fresh tuna, salmon or grilled chicken.

Usually, soy sauce is quite an important ingredient to add to a poké bowl as a seasoning. On the SIBO diet that I follow, soy sauce is not allowed, unfortunately.

Therefore, I make my own dressing with mayonnaise, fresh ginger, homemade Greek yogurt, and lemon juice. If you don’t follow the SIBO diet, you can of course also add some soy sauce to your bowl.

All of these ingrediënts together make a very flavorful and healthy poké bowl!

A low carb poké bowl with carrot rice and salmon. Suitable for a SIBO diet and the low FODMAP diet. Gluten-free and lactose-free.



For the poké bowl

  • 400 g (14.1 oz) carrots
  • Optional: 40 g (1.4 oz) white rice (if you use the rice, you can lower the amount of carrots to 300 g)
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) cucumber
  • 80 g (2.8 oz) red bell pepper
  • 60 g avocado (1/4 avocado)
  • 1 sheet of nori
  • 2 stalks of spring onion, the green part
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) smoked salmon

For the sauce

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp lactose-free Greek yogurt*
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp grated ginger
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of chili powder


  1. Peel the carrots. Pulse them in a food processor until you have fine crumbs.
  2. If you use regular rice: boil it according to the instructions on the package.
  3. Divide the carrot rice and normal rice over 2 bowls and put aside. 
  4. Wash the cucumber and the red bell pepper and cut into small pieces.
  5. Cut the avocado into cubes.
  6. Cut the nori sheet into small pieces and the spring onion into rings.
  7. Cut the smoked salmon into pieces.
  8. Mix all ingredients for the sauce together in a bowl.
  9. Divide the smoked salmon, cucumber, red bell pepper, avocado, nori, and spring onion around the sides of the bowls.
  10. Scoop the sauce in the middle and serve.


*Omit if you are still in the limited phase of the SIBO diet.

On the SIBO diet, soy sauce is not allowed, which is why I don’t use it in this recipe. If you don’t follow a SIBO diet, you can of course add some soy sauce to your poké bowl.
