Eat Your Dark Greens For Breakfast? YES!


I had the best time in my kitchen yesterday morning.  I found a recipe that I got really excited about in my latest Cooking Light magazine and just couldn’t hardly wait to get in there and give it a whirl. It was a traditional Korean dish called – bibimbop. My husband said that when he was in Korea for a year he saw lots of people eating variations of this dish all the time. He never ventured to try it himself, though. But that’s because my hubby is a vegephobe. He won’t go near any visible vegetables – ever. (Shhh….don’t tell him, but I have a habit of sneaking them in when he’s not looking!)

So, I was so excited about my cooking experience with bibimbop that I made my very first video log! That’s right – I’m reaching beyond my comfort zone!

And here it is, so check it out!

(I don’t know what happened to my video – it disappeared into the YouTube abyss, I’m assuming.)

It was such a reward to sit down and try one of these tasty little bowls. Here is how mine turned out.

Bibimbop

Don’t they look scrumptious? The recipe called for Korean chili paste, but I didn’t have any on hand and used Frank’s Red Hot, one of my most favorite condiments, instead.

Here is the recipe from Cooking Light Magazine.

Yes, it’s a little involved, but if you’ve got about an hour to spend in the kitchen, this is such a great meal to prepare ahead. I’m thinking of making everything but the egg for the next time I make this. Then, I can just cook one egg and pile it on top of the prepared bowls and my egg won’t get hard in the microwave.

I know I’ll be making this one for a long time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

To a healthier, happier and longer life (full of leafy green veggies!)
