Easy vegan bibimbap (Rice with veggies) recipe

Bibimbap is the easiest thing to make vegan in Korean cuisine (in my own, most humble opinion). It is already something that inherently has a lot of vegetables and protein (baby spinach), and switching the beef for some tofu is the easiest. The hardest part to replace in a bibimbap is the traditional sunny side up egg in the middle, but that’s nothing that a great tofu scramble cannot fix. So, here it is, my easy vegan bibimbap recipe.

So traditionally, bibimbap has the following ingredients:

  • Spinach
  • Bean Sprouts
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumber
  • Green onions
  • Gosari (fernbrake)
  • Doraji (Bellflower roots)

Except for the last two, most of these things are pretty easy to find. But honestly, sometimes your fridge does not want to cooperate and you forgot to buy half of these ingredients so you just decide to wing it. And when you wing it, you just add:

  • Some green veggies (green beans, in my case)
  • Zucchini and carrots (that much is true to the traditional)
  • Soy bean sprouts (traditional too)
  • Mushrooms (Two types)

And then, for the other ingredients:

  • Tofu (it will be our main protein): firm and soft
  • Sauces: gochujang and soy sauce
  • Rice
  • Some garlic powder and some curcuma (for the “fake egg”)

How to make this easy vegan bibimbap?

This recipe takes time because you need to delicately chop and cook all the vegetables. Cut all your veggies in sticks, your firm tofu as well. For the soft tofu, mix with curcuma and garlic powder and make like a scramble.

When all of that is done, cook each vegetable separetely with a bit of olive oil. While you do that, cook your rice and once it’s done, put it in the center of a bowl. Then start placing all your ingredients except for the soft tofu around the rice in the center. Then in the middle, place the soft tofu and add a big spoon (or two, or three) of gochujang.
