Clean eats: bibimbap

May 6, 2014

Bibimbap is a traditional Korean rice dish that’s typically served warm. If you don’t already know what it is, it’s basically a bowl of warm rice topped with sauteed veggies, pepper paste and an egg. Then everything is stirred together just before eating. I love bibimbap but I don’t order it often because I don’t really eat white rice or beef. So with all my favorite foods, I decided to make a healthier version of the dish by using quinoa instead of rice. I also topped the quinoa with lots of veggies and then a bit of flaked tuna instead of beef. I kept my veggies raw because I was too lazy to sautee each and every one separately especially since I was only making one portion of it so it didn’t seem all too practical to do so. Of course if you want a more traditional version of it you can always sautee them all.
