“Me fifth element – supreme being. Me protect you.”

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a great time last week and that you are ready to start working on all your resolutions. So are we. To help you to dive into 2016 with energy and in harmony, we have come up with a breakfast recipe which is so versatile that it can be your lunch, dinner or whatever you need it to be. Sounds promising, doesn’t it?

This is our version of a signature Korean dish Bibimbap (translates as “to mix rice”). But this bowl it’s not just a dish – it’s the whole experience. One look at a Bibimbap and you’ll know that some foods are just a perfect combination of nutrition and aesthetics. You will need five different colors for the toppings to represent the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine: fire, water, earth, metal and wood. We used millet (cooked with turmeric), kale, marinated ginger and carrots, roasted sunflower seeds, avocado, chili pepper and of course eggs (if you are vegan, just use tofu instead).

The trick is not to mix the ingredients before serving, but to place them in a bowl next to each other with an egg on top. Once you acknowledge the beauty of the tedious construction, stir it all together and take the first bite. In return, Bibimbap will make sure to protect you, even when the temperatures drop significantly.

As the urban legend says: A bowl of Bibimbap a day keeps the doctor away!
