“Fail-proof Korean recipe”
Serving Size: 2 happy people

콩나물밥 or (Korean SoySprout Bowl) is one of our favorite go-to meals when you are just not in the mood to cook. It is one of those “fail-proof” recipes that you can whip-up with minimal effort. If you have a friend or family member who is visiting the mart, ask them to purchase just one bag of bean sprouts. The marinade sauce is based on soy-sauce and does not use any fish sauce. Enjoy and if you do not end-up using all of the marinade, store it in the fridge for another bowl!

Ingredients:

  • Bean sprouts (3 cups)
  • Sticky rice (2 cups)
  • Soy sauce (5 tablespoon)
  • Sugar (1 tablespoon)
  • Korean red chili flakes (1 tablespoon)
  • Sesame oil (1/2 tablespoon)
  • Spring onion (Garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the bean sprouts by taking off the stems
  2. Put bean sprouts in a pot with water and bring the pot up to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, turn off the heat immediately.
  3. Pour out boiled beansprouts into a strainer and save the water
  4. Use the water from the beansprouts to cook your rice (key step!)
  5. Rinse blanched bean sprouts in cold water and place aside for marinade
  6. For the marinade: Mix soy sauce, sugar, Korean red chili powder, sesame oil, diced spring onions. Mix all of the ingredients thoroughly into marinade.
  7. Assemble the bowl: Put rice on the bottom, then add blanched bean sprouts, and then add one tablespoon of marinade. Then mix it up and its ready to eat!
  8. (Optional): Fry up an egg (sunny-side up) and place on top of the bowl.
