Korean Food Pt. 2

Tonight I had a really delicious and colorful dinner.  It’s nutritious and just a tad spicy.  It’s bori bap. (보리밥)

This dish is similar to another favorite of mine, bibimbap.  The difference is in the rice.  Bori bap has a slightly fatter grain and it is more sticky than regular white rice.  The concept of both bori bap and bibimbap is the same-

Take a bowl of rice.

Add vegetables.  (sometimes meat)

Add a little sesame oil.

Add gochujang (Korean red pepper paste).

Mix it up.

Eat!

It’s such a simple and nutritious dish.  I love the variety of vegetables you can add, the possibilities are endless.  The gochujang makes the dish spicy so you should add it according to your tastebud’s tolerance of spice.  I like mine spicy.

This restaurant I went to served us a nice variety of vegetables, a soft tofu dish, and some Korean bean soup.  Bori bap is one of my most favorite Korean dishes.

Veggie platter:  (I think its great when restaurants serve boribap or bibimbap like this, as you can add whatever and how much of whatever you like)

Veggies added:  (Beneath the colorful mountain is the rice, and the red in the middle is the gochujang)

Mixed up:

One of Korea’s healthiest dishes.
