Korean-Style Bibimbap Bowls

There’s no need to purchase pricey pre-cooked rice to make one of these tasty bowls – simply simmer basmati rice for 12 minutes, drain, then allow to cool completely before using.


Serves 2

Total Time

15 Minutes


3 tbsp of sunflower oil
6 tbsp of cooked or leftover basmati rice
10 button mushrooms, brushed clean
4 radishes, finely sliced
1 carrot, peeled and very finely sliced
1 small courgette, very finely sliced
2 tbsp of frozen or fresh podded edamame beans
Handful of spinach leaves
1 tbsp of dark soy sauce
½ tsp of soft brown sugar
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
1 spring onion, finely sliced
1 tbsp of sesame seeds


Step 1

Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a medium-sized frying pan over a medium–high heat, then add the cooked rice, pushing it down flat to form a level rice cake. Cook for 5 minutes until the base of the rice becomes crisp, then remove and separate into two bowls.

Step 2

Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large wok over a high heat and stir-fry the mushrooms, radishes, carrot, courgette, edamame beans, and spinach leaves for 2–3 minutes. Spoon in the soy sauce and brown sugar, then stir-fry for a further 2 minutes.

Step 3

Spoon the vegetables over the rice, then scatter with the chilli, spring onion, and sesame seeds.
