  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 medium carrot julienned
  • 1 medium zucchini julienned
  • 1/2 cup sugar snap peas ends removed
  • 1/2 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • 1 tablespoon organic wheat-free tamari sauce
  • Sriracha to taste or other hot sauce of your choosing


  • Prepare the quinoa by placing the dry quinoa and 1 cup of water on the stove to boil. Once the water reaches a boil, cover and turn down to low. Let the quinoa simmer for about 8 – 10 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let stand, still covered, for another 5 minutes.
  • While the quinoa is cooking, prepare your vegetables. Add the carrots, zucchini, peas and bean sprouts into a small steamer basket ½” of water in the bottom of a sauce pot and steam for 3 – 5 minutes. You want the vegetables to be soft, but still firm.
  • In a pre-heated frying pan, crack the eggs and cook until desired consistency. For us, that was leaving them sunny-side-up, cooking for about 4 minutes on one side.
  • As the eggs are finishing to cook, prepare your Bibimbap bowl. Add half of the quinoa into the bottom of one bowl, top with vegetables, half of the tamari and a touch of Sriracha. Top with the egg and green onions, and voila, you have a delicious Korean dish on your hands!
  • Serve warm and enjoy, with a touch more heat if your pallet can handle it.


How to store: This quinoa bibimbap is best eaten fresh because of the egg, but if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat it in the microwave until warmed through.
