KNU Summer Camp : Cooking Korean Food Bibimbap

 Hi, guys!

        In KNU Summer camp, we had learned how to cook Korean foods. They teach us how to cook bibimbap. The term “bibim” means mixing various ingredients, while the “bap” noun refers to rice. Bibimbap is a Korean rice bowl topped with an array of vegetables and meat. Then, it was served with a gochujang sauce. A raw or fried egg and sliced meat are common additions. The hot dish is stirred together thoroughly just before eating. Since Fizah and I can not eat meat, so the teacher excludes the meat and we just use only vegetables for ingredients in the cooking class. I am touched as they were really caring and considerate about us.

As we arrived at the kitchen, we were demonstrated how to cook bibimbap by a chef. The vegetables commonly used in bibimbap are cucumber, courgette, radish, mushrooms, bellflower root, spinach, soybean sprouts, and bracken fern stems. All the vegetables were cooked and arranged on the rice bowl. Then, sesame oil and gochujang red sauces were added to complete the dish.

Everyone is adapting and look around in the kitchen.

We are ready to cooking bibimbap.

It looks yummy!

Besides its delicious, the meal also provided unique nutrition and flavor with attractive colors due to its rich ingredients. Furthermore, the ingredients have low-calorie content and offer a healthy diet. The combination of vegetables, rice, and fermented sauces provides adequate fiber, carbohydrates, and healthy content. Thus with various ingredients, bibimbap emerges as a unique meal that symbolizes the harmony and balance in the Korean culture. So don't forget to order bibimbap if you come to Korea or go to a Korean restaurant because it is a very delicious and healthy dish.
