Vegetable Bibimbap

Roasted Vegetable Bibimbap

This vegetable Bibimbap recipe is adapted from Martha Rose Shulman’s recipe in the New York Times. It’s super simple to prepare. If you’re a good multi-tasker, it could take as little as 45 minutes.

Ingredients

Butternut squash
1 Tbl canola oil
1 Tbl soy sauce
1/2 Tbl brown sugar
1 tsp sambal oelek
4 oz fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and cut in half
1/2 bunch broccoli, florets cut up
1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil (optional)
1/2 cup rice, uncooked
2 eggs
1/2 cup mung bean sprouts
1/2 lime wedge

Method

  1. Prepare rice and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Peel squash and cut it in half, separating the neck from the bottom.
  4. Slice the neck into 1/2″ thick rectangles; scoop out seeds and slice rest of squash to 1/2″ thick. You’ll end up with twice as much squash as you need for this recipe, so seal and save the remainder for another time. (Seeds for roasted butternut squash seeds.)
  5. Whisk together 1 Tbl canola oil, soy sauce, brown sugar and sambal oelek.
  6. Place squash in a bowl.
  7. Toss with half the sauce.
  8. Place broccoli and mushrooms in a bowl.
  9. Toss with the rest of the sauce.
  10. Lay half the squash on a baking sheet, compact without touching.   (You’ll only need half the squash for this recipe. Save the cleaned squash for another meal.)
  11. Place pan with squash in the oven and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  12. Lay broccoli and mushrooms on the second sheet.
  13. When 10 minutes are up, add pan of broccoli and mushrooms.
  14. Set timer for 15 minutes.
  15. 10 minutes before serving, heat 1/2 Tbl canola oil and the 1/2 tsp sesame oil in a wide skillet over medium heat.
  16. Press rice into the skillet, making a thick cake.
  17. Let cook without disturbing until a golden brown crust forms on the bottom.
  18. While the crispy rice is nearly done, fry the eggs.
  19. Add enough canola oil to liberally coat pan.
  20. Crack in 2 eggs and sprinkle with salt.
  21. Tilt pan so oil runs over edges of egg whites.
  22. Lower heat to medium-low and cook 1 minute.
  23. Sprinkle with about 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce, cover and cook another minute, until whites are set.
  24. Divide rice among 2 bowls, ensuring that everyone gets some of the crispy part.
  25. Top with vegetables, including any marinade left on the baking sheets, and place 1 fried egg on top of vegetables in each bowl.
  26. Garnish with sprouts or shoots, pickles (if using) and lime.
  27. Serve immediately.

*Peeling, cleaning and chopping the squash can be time-consuming, especially if you’re saving the seeds to roast. But boy is it worth it.
