Vegetarian Bibimbap with Garlic Ginger Tempeh

Bibimbap is a Korean dish that I recently discovered and I’m obsessed. It consists of rice topped with sautéed vegetables, chill, meat and eggs. The combinations of what you can top your Bibimbap with are endless, making it extremely versatile and we all know how versatility is one of my favourite things!


Today I’m keeping my Bibimbap vegetarian – subbing the meat for garlic ginger tempeh. I’m using Noble Bean tempeh which is packed with lots of protein and is fermented, making it great for digestion.

Bibimbap is a great way to get your veggie intake for the day. Top it with sautéed kale, bok choy, zucchini, bean sprouts, mushrooms etc. I’m also adding some roasted veggies to the mix because I like to break the rules and I think it pairs well in the Bibimbap.
