Bibimbap – A korean iconic dish which tastes so unique with authentic flavours even though it seems like a kind of buddha bowl.
In Korean, the word bibim means “mixed” and bap means “rice”, so bibimbap literally translates to “mixed rice”.
It is a warm bowl of mixed rice topped with various individually prepared seasoned raw and cooked vegetables, a protein of choice, and served with korean hot red pepper sauce called “gochujang.”
As the bibimbap mainly consists of rice and vegetables, it can be easily veganized no matter what Korean restaurant you go to. Just ask for tofu or mushrooms instead egg and meat.
I learned this delicious dish and more about Korean temple food during my visit to Seoul this year. There were so many variations of bibimbap I tasted and loved, the recipe I’m sharing is just one my favorite ways to eat it and close to original version.
1 cup brown rice or mixed rice of your choice
200 g oyster mushrooms
200 g pulled young jackfruit
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tamari or coconut aminos
1 tbsp gochujang + more for serving
1/4 cup pickled daikon (see below)
1/4 cup kimchi
5-6 shishito peppers
1/4 cup bean sprouts
100 g spinach
3 garlic cloves minced
1 julienne sliced carrot
2 toasted nori sheets
70 g daikon julienne sliced
50 ml rice vinegar
50 ml water
1 tsp pink himalayan salt + more as needed

2. Strain the excess water of canned jack fruit, repeat the process for jackfruit as well.
3. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of the oil, 1 tbsp tamari and korean hot pepper paste. Toss around to evenly coat the mushrooms and jack, then bake for 20 minutes, or until mushrooms and jack are a bit crispy and brown on the edges.
4. To make pickled daikon, julienne slice the daikon and place in a jar.
Bring rice vinegar, water, coconut sugar and salt to a gentle boil.
Pour the hot pickling liquid over the daikon. The pickles can be eaten straight away, but they are worth making a day in advance as their flavour develops with time you sit them. Store in an airtight jar in the fridge. They can be stored up to 4-5 weeks.
5. Heat up 1 tsp of oil in a medium non-stick pan. Throw in the shishito peppers and fry them by pressing down with a lid of pot from time to time until they are nicely browned on all sides. Season with salt and set aside.
6. Throw in the spinach and chopped onions and a splash of water. Cook on a low heat, stirring from time to time, until the spinach wilts and most of the excess water cooks out. . Add some minced garlic and stir well. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
7. Throw the julienne sliced carrots, 1 tsp olive oil and a pinch salt, fry on medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Set aside. Repeat the process for bean sprouts or you can serve them raw if desired.
8. Using a sharp knife, thinly slice toasted nori sheets. Set aside.
9. Divide all the veggies, kimchi, pickled daikon, thinly sliced nori sheets, oven baked pulled mushrooms and jackfruit between two bowls. Sprinkle with asian sesame seeds and top with extra gochujang about 1 teaspoon. Enjoy!
This raw avocado chocolate cake recipe was one of the first recipes I’ve developed when I was providing raw cake trainings in between 2018-2019. This one is a little more developed over time. It is so easy to make and super delicious! I guarantee you will love it.
Cashews, which are used commonly in raw cakes, can give a feeling of density, are not economical in today’s conditions, and also are not produced under ethical conditions. So we have quite a few reasons to give up cashews. There are still no fair trade cashews in many countries. Unfortunately, most of the cashews come from places such as India, Ivory Coast, Vietnam, where human labor is exploited, where there is no fair working and hygienic production conditions. If you are a vegan who questions the source of the product you use, you might be interested in this video:
When we say goodbye to cashews, one of the great alternatives we can use in raw cakes is avocado- the healthiest fat in the world! It grows locally in so many countries today. No matter how high the avocado tree’s water consumption is, we can contribute to our planet by consuming it in season and minimizing our purchase of out-of-season products.
Yield: 15 cm round cake – 6 pieces
40 g dried white mulberries
40 g raw hazelnut butter
40 g buckini (activated and dehydrated buckwheat groats, see notes*)
15 g raw cacao powder 30 g maple syrup (or similar liquid sweetener of your choice, see notes**)
1/8 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
Avocado Chocolate Cream:
1 ripe avocado (approximately 150-160 g, weight after peeled and core removed)
30 g raw cacao powder
60 ml maple syrup (or a similar liquid sweetener of your choice, see notes**)
60 ml almond milk
30 ml coconut oil melted
25 ml cacao butter melted
5-6 drops of food-grade wild orange essential oil (or mint, lemon, rose etc. choose a flavor and use only, see notes*)
1/8 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
1. Throw the white dried mulberry into the food processor and mix it until it comes to a crumb form.
2. Then add the buckinis (buckwheat groats that you soaked in water for 1 hour, rinsed and dehydrated at 46 C for 4-5 hours, beforehand) Mix mulberry and buckini together.
3. Then run the food processor again, adding raw cacao powder, maple syrup, hazelnut butter and salt. Mix in the food processor until everyting combines together.
4. Remove the dough from the food processor and transfer it to a 15 cm round cake tin lined with parchment paper. Spread and flatten the dough by pressing it down with your hands, cake mould handle or with the back of a spatula or spoon.
5. Transfer all cream ingredients, except coconut oil and cacao butter, to a blender. Blend until it becomes a smooth liquid. Then add the melted coconut oil and cacao butter and mix again. Taste the mixture, adding a little salt or sweetener if needed. Depending on the variety, softness and fat content of your avocado, you may want to add another tablespoon or two of almond milk. The consistency should be slightly thick but at the same time pourable fluidity.
6. Pour the mixture on the cake base, smooth it out with a spatula or gently shake the mold from side to side to prevent bubbles.
7. After 2 hours in the freezer or 4 hours in the refrigerator, remove from the mold, cut into pieces and serve.
8. Garnish with orange zest or edible flowers. You may also want to dust some the raw cacao powder on top and garnish with raw cacao nibs.
Important Notes on the Recipe:
***The intensity of essential oils can vary from brand to brand, start with 2-3 drops, taste and then continue adding. Adding too much at once can cause bitterness. Medicine Flower or doTERRA brands are my favorite.
**Maple syrup, date syrup, grape molasses or coconut nectar syrup can be used as liquid sweetener in this cake. If you use date syrup or grape molasses, it will not comply with the raw nutrition rules, but you will still get a delicious cake. Agave can also be preferred as a raw alternative, but I personally do not recommend it anymore. Agave has the highest fructose content of any commercial sweetener on the market. Yes, that’s right, Agave Nectar beats table sugar and even high fructose corn syrup. Agave is 90 percent fructose, while maple syrup is around 35 percent.
While some people avoid high fructose corn syrup, which only has a fructose content of 55%, they continue to take agave because of its low glycemic index while unknowingly consuming a product with 90% fructose.
Alternatively, you can use whole dates, in this case, soak the dates in water, drain them, then puree them with very light water and add them to your avocado mix.
*As an alternative to buckini, you can use any nut flour ( for nut-free nutty alternative use tiger nuts) , but if you want a crunchy base, buckini is the best alternative. To make the buckini, put the raw (green) buckwheat groats in a bowl, cover with warm water. Let it soak in water for 1 hour. After 1 hour, squeeze a few pieces with your hand and check, if it breaks easily, it means it is activated. Transfer to a strainer, rinse thoroughly under running water and drain. Then, spread it thinly on the dehydrator and dehydrate at 46 degrees for 4-5 hours or until completely dry. Gently move the buckwheat groats with a spatula every hour or so to make the dehydration process easier.
Now the buckini is ready, transfer it to a glass jar, close the lid and store it at room temperature for months, you can use it in your raw recipes.
If you have a dehydrator, this is a very easy process, but if you do not want to be involved in this long process, you can purchase activated dehydrated buckwheat groats from the health stores. Sprouted dehydrated versions are also great in this recipe.
TIP: If you don’t like to consume oil, try this recipe in the jar. Just remove the coconut oil and cacao butter from the ingredient list. It will still taste so good. Today I don’t consume bottled oils as before and usually make my cakes in the jars. No need to wait to solidify the oils in the cream for long hours. It is also healthier, more economical, and much more delicious! Cake or jar cake may be preferred depending on the situation, you may want to make a birthday cake using oil for your loved ones, or you may just want to enjoy a healthy dessert for yourself without oil. You can use my base recipe for any kind of ocassion.

Ever since I visited Thailand, I noticed that many dishes in Europe is lack of flavour.
It is a fact that the first week in Thailand was tough. 🙂 It was an upset stomach experience since I’m not familiar with such intense spices. I must admit I mixed it up a bit too much too. I remember I called the Vegano Bangkok @veganobkk to order some vegan pizza almost every night for the first week, to recover. 😀 But after the first week I started to feel that everything I ate was incredibly aromatic, delicious and healthy. It is said about Thailand that you either love it very much or you don’t like it at all, there is no middle way. I’m definitely one of those who love the most! Can’t wait to visit this beautiful country again one day.
Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite Thai dishes with you. This Khao Soi is our vegan take on the traditional Coconut Curry Noodle Soup from Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand where I spent almost my 2 months. It is delicious, hearty, creamy and packed full of Asian flavours. If you visit Chiang Mai one day, be sure you try it at @goodsoulskitchen, they make the best one in the town.
If you want to make it at home, here is our recipe:
150 g rice noodles
1 lt water
4 tbsp vegan fish sauce
1 tbsp coconut sugar
40 g dried shiitake mushrooms soaked or 200 g fresh mushrooms of your choice
400 ml coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
70 g chiles chopped
75 g shallots about chopped
3 garlic cloves roughly chopped
1 stalk lemongrass white part only, chopped
4 kaffir lime leaves
5 slices galangal or 1 tsp galangal powder
1 small fresh turmeric (5 g)chopped or 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp salt
A handful of fried gf wonton strips (remove if you are avoiding oil)
Pickled sour mustard leaves thinly sliced or pickled jalapeno
A few lime slices
A handful of chopped cilantro
Cut 8-19 wrappers into thin strips.( You can use store-bought or make your own gluten-free wonton, recipe here) Fill a small pot with enough oil and turn on the heat. Once the oil is heated, quickly fry the wonton strips until golden brown. Remove and drain on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Set aside until ready to use.
Place the chiles, shallot, garlic, lemongrass, lime leaves, galangal, salt, plus coriander, and turmeric in a food processor. Add a drizzle of oil, then blend into a fine paste. You can also use a mortar and pestle to pound the ingredients if you prefer.
Heat up a large wok and add a little bit olive oil (use water if you are avoiding the oil).
Add the chile paste and stir-fry over medium-low heat until fragrant. If it appears dry, add a little more water or oil. Do not over-fry the paste or it will turn bitter.
Then add the mushrooms, coconut sugar, vegan fish sauce or protein of your choice ( tempeh, tofu etc would work. Just cook the tofu or tempeh in the oven or pan before adding to the curry paste at this stage ) and continue to stir-fry until they release their aroma.
Now add the water and half of the coconut milk. Bring it to a boil and leave it simmering for 20-25 minutes.
NOODLES AND GARNISH
Meanwhile cook your noodles of choice as directed by the package, then evenly divide the cooked noodles between three bowls.
Prepare the toppings and side ingredients.
Back to the soup, turn down the heat and add the rest of coconut milk. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
Ladle the hot curry over the noodles. Garnish with fried wonton strips, shallots, sour mustard, lime wedges, and cilantro.
