Bibimbap, or “mix it up,” is essentially a rice bowl which you can adorn with whatever toppings you like. A great vehicle for leftovers.
4 cups cooked short grain brown rice
about 4 cups of various cooked vegetables (we used: sautéed zucchini and beans sprouts with ginger and garlic blanched broccolini; blanched baby bok choy; and sautéed shitake mushrooms with sesame oil, ginger and garlic)
1 block firm tofu, drained, sliced and lightly fried (or prepare it anyway you like)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds
1 large sheet nori seaweed, shredded
1 cup prepared kimchi (Korean pickled cabbage)
1. Distribute the rice amongst four bowls.
2. Allow everyone to add whatever toppings they like.
3. Bibimbap it—mix it all up!
