Bibimbap(비빔밥) which means "mixed rice" is a healthy and hearty everyday dish that consists of steamed rice, vegetables and meat. And before the rice is placed in the bowl, the bottom of the bowl is coated with sesame oil making the layer of the rice forms a crispy crust at the bottom(a bit similar to our Asian Claypot Rice) while the dish is often serve with a dollop of gochujang.
(Serves: 2 | Preparation: 15 minutes | Cooking: 15 - 20 minutes)
2 Serving Portions of Cooked White Rice
4 Medium Fresh Shiitake Mushrooms, cut into thin slices
60g Bean Sprout
1 Small Carrot, julienne
1 Small Zucchini, julienne
100g Spinach, blanched
Some Cabbage Kimchi, optional
3 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
Pinch of Salt
1 Teaspoon Toasted Sesame Seeds
Extra Sesame Oil
Method:-1. Fill a medium saucepan or pot with water and bring to boil. Blanch the spinach for about 1 minute, drain, rinse with cold water and squeeze out any excess liquid.
2. Roughly cut spinach into section and add in half of the drizzling sauce and mix well. Set aside.
3. Repeat the same produce as above with the bean sprouts.
4. Add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a small frying pan/saucepan, saute the zucchini with some chopped garlic till zucchini soften. Remove and set aside.
5. Repeat the step with carrot and mushrooms, keeping them separate.
6. Using individual heatproof casserole dish, grease inside lightly with some sesame oil, add 1 portion of the rice and place over high heat for 3 minutes to sear the rice.
7. At the meantime, prepare the pan and fry the sunny-side up egg.
8. To serve, remove casserole from heat, place egg in the center and arrange the prepared vegetables alternatively around the egg. Sprinkle with extra sesame seeds and sesame oil, serve immediately with some gochujang paste on the side.
NOTE:-~ If you have time, prepared all the side vegetables ahead in the morning and keep them in the fridge so that you would be able to get the dish ready in 10 minutes during lunch or dinner.
I made Bibimbap yesterday! Kids really like it, so I'm going to make it again with this recipe next time! Great idea to put the egg first then put the veggies around (so the eggs looks like raw egg). You nailed this bibimbap shot, Ellena!ReplyDelete
