I love bibimbap. I also love egg rice (계란 밥). So, today I decided to make a simplified bibimbap using kale and an egg as the main ingredients! There's a touch of sweetness to it from a secret ingredient I use to offset the bitterness of the kale. This recipe is easy enough for any college student or any busy mom/dad to make for their child as a snack or simple meal. Here we go!
- Brown rice or white
- 1 TBS Korean chilli paste (gochujang or 고추장)
- 1 tsp - 2 tsp of honey (depending on how sweet you'd like it)
- Sesame oil
- A bundle of kale
- Green onions & sesame seeds (optional)
First, make some rice of your choice whether its brown or white. After, add some gochujang and honey into your rice. You can also mix the honey and gochujang in a separate dish, but I just like to add it to my rice to make things easier.
Next, rip your kale into pieces while you add it into your rice mixture. Add a drizzle of sesame oil and mix all ingredients together. At this point you can add any other veggies you have in the fridge or even some chopped kimchi!
Fry your egg with a little bit of sesame oil. I like to make sunny side up eggs because the yolk tastes so yummy when mixed in with the rice! TIP: Put your heat on the lowest when frying your egg sunny side up style and with a spoon or fork make sure to spill the uncooked white parts on to the pan so everything is evenly cooked.
Top your rice mixture with the fried egg. Chop some green onions and top everything with some of that and some sesame seeds! Voila! Enjoy your simplified kale bibimbap. The honey added a sweet twist on this dish and it was so easy to make... hope you enjoy!
