Spanish Bibimbap



Spanish Babimbap

Of course, since we live in Korea, the first thing we had to make with our Spanish Korean Rice was Spanish Bibimbap (비빔밥).  "What's Bibimbap (비빔밥)?" you ask.  Well, it's a filling and tasty Korean meal popular with locals and visitors.  Perfect for lunch or dinner, it's loaded with veggies and healthy grains.  You can also add chicken (닭고기), beef (소고기) or seafood (생선) if you are feeling a little fancy.


Well, to be honest, the biggest issue is choosing what delicious veggies and greens to use to create the perfect fusion flavor.  For our Spanish version we mixed traditional Korean veggies with a few new favorites to create our ideal taste, however, we encourage you to have fun with this and try different combinations.


1 Fire Roasted Pepper
1 Cup Spinach
2-3 Mushrooms
1 Baby Bok Choy
1 Table Spoon Chopped Green Onions
4 Cherry Tomatoes
1 Egg
Hot Sauce
Two Dashes of Paprika
Salt to taste

Optional Ingredients: 
4 Medium Shrimp
1 Small Julianne Carrot 
1 Table Spoon Kimchi (김치)
1/2 Avocado  

First, prepare your vegetables (Pepper, Spinach, Mushrooms, Baby Bok Choy, Cherry Tomatoes).  We like to fire roast our peppers.  This brings out their sweetness and it's a very popular Spanish cooking style.

Our other vegetables are sauteed (볶다) in olive oil instead of sesame oil in order to help give them more of a Spanish flavor.  You can add a little salt and a few dashes of paprika if you like as well.

Second, create a bed of Spanish Korean Rice.

Third, carefully create a lovely spread of vegetables in sections.  Not mixed together yet.

Fourth, Fry an egg over easy and place it on top of the vegetables.  Then sprinkle with lots of your favorite hot sauce and some chopped green onions and a few dashes of paprika.

Cooking Note: You also want to make sure your egg has a very runny yoke so that when you break it it runs into the rice and makes a sauce.

Finally, it's time to mix it all up.  Before you bite into your creation, you will need to mix it all together in order to combine the flavors.  This is the fun part.  Using two chopsticks you can cut it together so that the eggs and hot sauce combine and mix into everything.

Now it's time for you to eat!!!
