I love nothing better than a warm, delicious, one-pot meal. And a true favorite is this vegetarian Bibimbap recipe. Pronounced “Bee Beem Bop,” this dish is a highly nourishing, classic meal in Korean cuisine. It’s composed of sautéed vegetables, rice, raw or cooked egg, and if desired, meat (usually beef). The word Bibimbap translates to “mixed rice.”

This dish is a rainbow of colors, tastes, aromas and textures — an unbelievable main course that is guaranteed to make your taste buds sing. The dish is thought to have originated in the Royal Courts of Korea. I enjoy thoroughly mixing the ingredients together before the first bite, which provides for full-on, unbridled flavor! The best part about it? You’re eating whole foods that elevate your wellness with each forkful. Enjoy healthy!
