Michy's Bibimbap Bowl

Bibimbap bowls are the ultimate Korean comfort food. A Korean rice bowl, bibimbap translated means "mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables". There are endless variations to this dish depending on your preference and dietary requirements, as well as the dish/bowl it is served in. A more traditional version would be made with raw beef and raw egg yolk along with vegetables. I'll stick to the cooked versions for our table.

Here is my first lean bibimbap bowl.

I built this bowl with lean ground beef, riced cauliflower, spinach, cucumber and egg.

A very tasty bowl, the base of a bibimbap bowl is typically noodles or rice topped with a protein, vegetables, and a flavorful sauce, This lean recipe with cauliflower rice and fell in love with the ease and flavors! Each component contributes something essential to the bowl in terms of richness, heat, or texture. I look forward to experimenting more with this. Have you every made a bibimbap bowl? Comment and tell me about it!
