Farro meets Korean flavors in this spicy nourish bowl with gochujang sauce. With just a little bit of advance prep work, this spicy, nutty, peppery, and crunchy dish (simply put – bursting with flavor and texture) can be ready to enjoy in under 10 minutes.

Spicy Korean Farro Nourish Bowl with Gochujang Sauce

San Diego is not only gorgeous, but it also has an amazing food scene (although not quite as good as Austin. What? Me biased? Never! ;)). After dining out for almost every single meal over the course of a week, I’m pretty happy to have nourish bowls back in my life. Today, I’m going back to my Korean roots with this exciting twist on the classic dish, bibimbap. I don’t know what it is, but every time I come back from a trip, my normally subdued cravings for Korean food go through the roof.

This bowl is actually a combination of two dishes – bibimbap and spicy soba noodles. Unlike this Korean vegan nourish bowl, I knew that the gochujang sauce needed to be a bit thinner in consistency to properly coat the chicken. Thus, the consistency and flavor of the sauce from this spicy soba noodles was perfect for this bowl.

Meal Prep Friday 4.10.15

Over the weekend, I spent some time meal prepping as I normally do {check out my Meal Prep Friday series}.

There are 2 criteria to these nourish bowls:

  1. Must be a well-balanced meal (with a combination of carbohydrates, protein, fat, veggies) comprised of wholesome, real ingredients
  2. Must take less than 10 minutes to assemble – no stress, no fuss

Spicy Korean Farro Nourish Bowl with Gochujang Sauce

I made the gochujang sauce over the weekend and enjoyed it throughout the week. Instead of rice, I incorporated chewy and nutty farro. Arugula definitely needs to be utilized more in Korean cooking as I was surprised at how well its peppery note complemented the spicy sauce. And, of course, snap peas, red bell pepper, and carrots add a lovely crunch factor. If you are hungry for more nourish bowls, check out my Pinterest board!
