Korean food is one of the best food on the planet. Bibimbap, in particular, is the rockstar of Korean cuisine. Korean Bibimbap is basically a dish of steamed rice, served with sautéed seasonal vegetables and meat and served with an addictive Gochujang chilli sauce. Of course, we don’t do no meat here, so I’ve come up with a recipe for a delicious Vegan Korean Bibimbap.
