- 3/4 cup Sushi Rice
- 6 ounces Rainbow Carrots
- 6 ounces Brussels Sprouts
- 1 tablespoon Gochujang
- 1 Cucumber
- 1 Scallion
- 1 clove Garlic
- 2 tablespoons Sesame Oil
- 2 tablespoons Vegenaise
- 6 ounces Baby Spinach
- 1 tablespoon Sesame Seeds
- 4 ounces Vegan Kimchi
- 1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt To taste
- Preheat the oven to 400 °F (205 °C). Combine the sushi rice, 1 1/4 cups water, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until the grains are tender and all water is absorbed about 15 to 18 minutes. Remove cover to allow rice to cool.
- Peel and slice the carrots. Trim and halve the Brussels sprouts. In a small bowl, mix the gochujang with 1 tbsp water to make a glaze.
- Transfer sprouts to a baking sheet, toss with 1 tsp vegetable oil, gochujang glaze, and a pinch of salt. Add sliced carrots to the other side of the baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp oil. Roast vegetables until tender, about 14 to 16 minutes.
- Thinly slice the cucumber. Thinly slice the scallion. Mince the garlic clove, add it to a small bowl along with the Vegenaise, a pinch of salt, 2 tsp water, and 2 tsp sesame oil. Whisk sesame aioli to combine.
- Place a large nonstick skillet or cast iron pan over medium-high heat with just 1 tsp sesame oil. Add the baby spinach and cook until just wilted about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt, transfer to a plate and sprinkle with a 1 tsp sesame seeds.
- Fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Return the skillet to medium-high heat and add the remaining sesame oil. Once hot, add the rice, press into an even layer, and cook until the bottom begins to crackle and brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.
- To serve the bibimbap family style, pile the roasted carrots, gochujang brussels sprouts, cucumber, sesame spinach, and kimchi directly onto the crispy rice in the skillet.
- Drizzle with sesame aioli, sprinkle with sliced scallion and remaining sesame seeds.
