THIS WEEK’S RECIPE: QUICK AND EASY BIBIMBAP
As the days get shorter and the nights chillier, I find myself craving dinners that are earthy, salty, and full of root veggies. Just as comforting as mac and cheese but with way less dairy, the traditional Korean dish bibimbap is right up there on my list of huggable meals. A little bit breakfast, a little bit exotic, and a whole lotta delicious, this simplified version only takes about 15 minutes to make, not counting the rice. Let’s get started!
» 1 daikon
» 1 Tbsp organic butter plus ½ Tbsp
» 1 cup stock
» 1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
» 1 head bok choy
» 1 Tbsp peanut or veggie oil
» 2-3 cloves garlic (and/or ginger, shallots, etc.)
» 1-2 tsp each soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, red pepper
» 2 eggs
» sriracha to taste
» salt and pepper to taste
Peel and slice the daikon into thin coins. Melt 1 Tbsp butter in a pan over medium-high heat then add the daikon and just enough stock to cover it, plus the hoisin and a little salt and pepper. Simmer until the stock evaporates and the daikon gets a nice glaze on it, 5 to 10 minutes. Flip the daikon coins once or twice but otherwise let them stay put so they brown.
Meanwhile, thinly slice the bok choy stalk and roughly chop the leaves, keeping the two separate. Heat the oil in a wok over high then add the garlic and the bok choy stalk. Stir fry until the garlic is cooked, about 3 minutes, then add the bok choy leaves, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes more.
Wipe out the daikon pan and heat the remaining ½ Tbsp butter. Fry the egg, flipping once. Combine all ingredients over brown rice and top with sriracha to taste. Happy farm sharing!
