A Tasty Take on Traditional Korean Bibimbap
Bibimbap is a staple in Korean cuisine and has become a very popular dish worldwide. It is a very timeless meal with a rice base and a unique mix of tasty vegetables that are sautéed and seasoned. Traditionally, it is served with an egg on top for added protein, nutrients and flavor. For us, we feel an all-organic, free-range Chino Valley Ranchers egg is a perfect way to top any dish!
No matter what combination of veggies you use, Korean bibimbap is a great way to brighten your day. This creative bibimbap recipe we’re sharing is not only loaded with flavor, it is also very healthy and bursting with protein, making this an extremely satisfying meal.
What You’ll Need:
- Chino Valley Ranchers’ eggs
- Red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
- Rice vinegar
- Sweet potatoes, cubed
- Miso paste
- Sesame oil
- Rice, cooked
- Shiitake mushrooms
- Baby kale
- Baby spinach
- Toasted sesame seeds
Start by preheating your oven to 425° F. In a medium bowl, mix 3:1:3 parts rice vinegar, salt, and water into a shallow bowl and soak the red pepper slices in the brine for at least 30 minutes. Drain them completely and make sure they are dry.
Meanwhile, line a baking tray with nonstick foil. In a separate bowl, coat about two cups of sweet potato with equal parts miso paste and sesame oil, and roast for 10 minutes. Move the potatoes around and continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes. When they are done, set the potatoes aside and let cool to room temperature.
In a separate pan over medium heat, sauté equal parts of shiitake mushrooms, baby kale and baby spinach with some sesame oil. Once the greens are wilted, mix with sesame seeds and set aside.
To assemble your bibimbap bowls, fill the bottom with rice and arrange the other prepared ingredients on top. Be as creative as you’d like with the presentation!
Now for the best part, the fried Chino Valley Ranchers’ eggs. Heat some olive oil in a small pan and pour in your eggs once the oil is hot. Fry them until the egg whites are cooked through. Place one fried egg on top of each bibimbap bowl and top it off with an extra dollop of red chili paste. Feel free to customize your own bibimbap bowls with ingredients like your favorite meats, seafood, pickled carrots, red cabbage, bean sprouts or cucumber.
Once it is all assembled, you can finally dig in and enjoy one of the most delicious and healthy meals around! For more information about Chino Valley Ranchers organic, grass-fed eggs or to find us in a store near you, contact us today!
