Vegetarian Korean Bibimbap~❤

Korean food had always be my favorite food. I never fails to fall in love with the rich flavors of the food.Bibimbap is one of many favorite dishes.

Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish , which mean " mixed meal " or " mixed rice". Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm rice topped with rain

bow vegetables and gochujang. Egg and meat is also added to the dish, to give it a more balance diet and a richer feel. The Rainbow colors of the dish will already make you drool.

Personally , I prefer "Dolsot Bibimbap". " Dolsot Bibimbap " is served in a hot stone bowl. Before the rice is places in the bowl, the bottom of the bowl is coated with sesame oil, making the layer of rice touching the bowl golden brown and crisp. However , in my family only me and my dearest boyfriend enjoy korean food. Therefore, i didnt went to buy the stone pot ! I think i shall purchase it soon !

Since is our favourite food. I decided to cook my own bibimbap for me and my boyfriend. I did a bit of addition into the recipe. You will be able original recipe at THE KITCHN.

Here my only version. You will realise in the picture the quantity of the ingredient is different from my reciepe. I made extra ingredient for my family.
