Korea’s most popular dish: Vegetarian Bibimbap

Bibimbap is Korea’s most popular dish. Made with cooked rice and an assortment of vegetables and an egg, all stirred together just before eating. A flavoursome, healthful bowl of colour, textures, and flavours.

30 minutes. Serves 2.


Version 2

1 cup long grain rice
10 mushrooms
1 carrot
50g baby spinach
1 brown onion
2 garlic cloves
2 free range eggs
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 long red chilli


  • Using absorption method, cook the rice. Place the rice in a small saucepan with 2 cups of cold water. Bring to the boil until the water has completely absorbed. Cover pot, remove from heat and set aside for minimum of 15 minutes.
  • While the rice is cooking, crush garlic, cut the mushrooms into quarters and peel and thinly slice the onion. Finely chop the chilli and grate carrot.
  • In a bowl combine soy sauce, sesame oil, crushed garlic and chilli (optional / to your taste). Mix well.
  • Heat a non-stick fry pan with drizzle of olive oil on a medium to high heat. Add mushrooms and onion. Sauté for 1 minute then add ¾ of pre mixed sauce. Stir-fry for a further 2 minutes. Remove from pan and cover with foil to keep hot.
  • Place pan back on the heat. Add spinach, remaining sauce mix and a tablespoon of boiling water. Sauté until the spinach has wilted.
  • Place rice at the base of a bowl then place the spinach, mushrooms and carrot separately, creating sections within the bowl. Top with the yolk of an egg. Mix well and serve hot.
