Well hello there you spicy-flavour-texture-bomb-colourful bowl of goodness you. This is not my first vegetarian bibimbap. It’s more of a green and pink affair than the last one and I’m totally into the colour combo. And the flavours. Everything on this is yelling at you but when you get them all together they harmonise.
This is so simple to make and so full of flavour. It feels like you’re eating something healing too because of the slurpy broth and big vegetable content. The gently poached chicken adds extra flavour to the broth, however you can leave it out, swap the chicken stock for vegetable stock and you’ve got a great vegetarian meal.
I’m going to start this post by saying I’m not really into tofu. I think it can be really bland sometimes and I’m not always into the spongy texture. This tofu is none of those things. This tofu I love. It’s crispy on the outside, smothered in satay sauce and nice and soft in the centre. This is the tofu that has converted me.
Guess what? I’m cooking with cauliflower again! I know this is no surprise. My obsession has been well documented throughout this blog. This is a super tasty salad that looks a little fancy on the plate. Because you deserve something fancy looking.
Most days either my lunch or dinner is some sort of bowl food. Because things eaten from a bowl with just one utensil are somehow simpler and better… well maybe not better (I feel this is unfair to all the other delicious non-bowl food out there) but really good!
I love spaghetti and meatballs. I love Asian food. I also love green vegetables. Therefore, this dish is everything to me because it has all those things. Oh and chilli and sesame and they’re always my go to flavours. This is basically my heaven.
Okay, before you get started I’m not pretending these are a health food. I do think they’re a much better option that munching on refined sugar filled lollies though and they’re my after dinner (or lunch!) treat and I LOVE THEM. And it’s my birthday so I can eat them all! Right?!
Despite me posting a curry recipe yesterday and complaining about the lack of Spring weather… it’s getting sunny this weekend and that means it’s time to get pumped about salads.
