This recipe includes various components but is well worth the extra work for anyone interested in the world of bibimbap (the word literally means mixed rice). You don't have to prepare all of the toppings in this recipe, but the more you make, the more diverse your bibimbap experience. In South Korea, as soon as all of the toppings are on the rice, bibimbap is mixed thoroughly with chopsticks (not a fork so as not to crush the ingredients) and then eaten with a spoon. You simply have to try it! This recipe is completely vegan. In South Korea, bibimbap is usually topped off with a fried egg with a soft, warm yolk, giving the dish a more creamy texture once all the ingredients are mixed together. I have chosen to use avocado in place of the egg. Together with the squash & chilli puree, this gives the dish its creaminess.

Aubergine and squash
How it's done
Blanch the bean sprouts in salted water for approx. 1 min., rinse with cold water, drain well, transfer to a bowl. Add the mirin and all the other ingredients up to and including the chilli flakes, mix, cover and chill for approx. 30 mins.
In a bowl, mix the cucumbers with all the other ingredients up to and including the pepper, cover and chill for approx. 30 mins.
In a bowl, mix the radishes with all the other ingredients up to and including the salt, cover and chill for approx. 30 mins.
Heat the oil and sesame seeds in a wide pan. Add the spinach, sauté until wilted, set aside.
Aubergine and squash
Place the aubergine (cut side up) on a baking tray lined with baking paper, score several times. Place the squash alongside, season both with salt, drizzle with oil.
Roast for approx. 40 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove and allow to cool slightly. Cut the aubergine into pieces, mix in a bowl with half of the rice syrup and half of the soy sauce, set aside. Mix the squash with the rest of the rice syrup and soy sauce, mirin, chilli flakes and paprika, mash the squash into a puree using a fork.
Combine the oil, rice syrup and soy sauce. Add the tofu, mix and leave to infuse briefly. Drain the tofu, fry in a non-stick frying pan for approx. 2 mins. on one side, turn the tofu, add the garlic, finish cooking for approx. 2 mins. Add the sauce. Mix in the ginger and chilli flakes, plate up. Garnish with the spring onions.
Cook the rice in salted water according to the packet instructions. Transfer the rice to a bowl, mix in the sesame seeds. Plate up the avocado, drizzle with lemon juice and garnish with coriander.
|Serve:||Bibimbap tastes best when the rice is warm and the toppings (which don't all have to be hot or a certain temperature) are then mixed in as described. One portion equates to approx. 200 g of cooked rice (approx. 70 g uncooked) and approx. 1 tbsp of each topping. All the ingredients are then mixed thoroughly with chopsticks and eaten with a spoon.|
