Bee-Bim Bop

h4325My son came home from the library this week with a copy of Linda Sue Park’s Bee-Bim Bop. We used to check it out all of the time when he was little.

“This is a little young for you, don’t you think?” I said.

“I know,” he told me. “I got it for the recipe.”

And so, last night for dinner: Bee Bim Bop. Still trying to master tofu (the recipe called for beef and we made that, too, but wanted the veggie option). All in all: success! I’ll definitely make it again. I like that the book suggests serving the toppings in bowls so members of the family can top the rice however they’d like. That way if one kid wants to skip the spinach, she can. If one kid wants to skip the mung beans, she can. For the record, my son ate everything. I wish I’d taken a picture, because it was colorful and attractive. But by the time I thought about it, it was ABCB (already-been-chewed bop) and somehow I don’t think you’d want to see that.

    I love this book. We read it with our 15 preschoolers. So fun to read aloud and the children chime in with the Bee-Bim Bop! We’ve made the recipe, too. Yum!

    I NEED to read more Linda Sue Park; this looks like a good place to start!

    Mmm, bee-bim-bop! We love this recipe, too — I think it may have been the first Books that Cook feature, actually. Ours didn’t photograph very well, but it was sure delicious.
