Bee-Bim Bop!

A few weeks ago our 5yr old's Kindergarten class read the book Bee-bim Bop! by Linda Sue Park. It sounded like a fun book so I borrowed it from our local library. The story is about a girl 'helping' her mom as they go through all the steps of making their dinner- Bee-bim Bop. At the end of the book the author has included a recipe for the dish they are making in the story, along with suggestions on how to divvy the work between the child and the grown up. We decided to give it a try, with great results! Our 5 yr old loved helping out with the cooking,
(especially squishing the marinade into the meat with her hands)
and the dish was delicious! And I was happy because it got my kids to eat vegetables they wouldn't have usually touched with a ten-foot pole (bean sprouts and cooked spinach). Aren't those egg ribbons pretty?
Bee-bim Bop gets a big thumbs-up in our house!
If you don't want to get the book, check out this recipe, it's pretty much the same as the one in the book. Enjoy!
