I’m personally not vegan, but I do love my veggies and this tasty lunch of dinner option is full of them. They’re packed with baby spinach, crunchy cucumbers and carrots, and caramelized chickpeas. There’s even some cauliflower rice mixed into the brown rice for added volume and fiber. It’s all topped off with a spicy sweet gochujang sauce and gut-friendly, vegan kimchi.

Like all bibimbap bowls (korean mixed rice bowls) all the vegetables in this recipe are optional. You can substitute or omit any depending on your taste preferences what’s available to you. Add red and yellow bell pepper instead of carrots, forget the cauliflower rice and use all brown or white rice, or replace the baby spinach with shredded cabbage. These bowls are a blank canvas for your creative taste buds.
