Korean Mixed Vegetables Rice / Bibim-bap !!!


 

Bibimbap is one of the signature dish in Korea. Bibim – “mixed”, bap – “rice” is served as/ with a bowl of warm white rice topped with sautéed and seasoned vegetables, greens, sprouts and chili pepper paste (gochujang). Additionally with a raw or fried / poached egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common. The ingredients are stirred individually & serve it hot just before eating.

This will served in hot clay bowl, which helps to retain the food warmness. Am so impressed about this dish, because in single bowl we are getting all the macro & micro nutrients, and also it’s easy to prepare and cook. This is one of the quickest & easiest meal with all nutrients.

Not only easy, it’s also eye appealing food with the gorgeous colorful vegetables. Best food for dieting / weight watchers.

I used cumin for flavor & digestion, in India it is one of the most important spice in our diet. It’s totally optional. Hope you all enjoy it !!!

Bon Appetite !!!
