Our 20 minute recipe

  1. Cook the rice

    If making fresh rice, boil a large pan of water then add the rice. Cook over a medium heat for 8-10 mins until it's almost done (it should still have some bite as it'll continue cooking later on), then drain it and keep aside. 

  2. Fry the cabbage first

    Heat some oil in a frying pan over high heat and stir-fry the cabbage (and any other fresh veg) with the GARLIC PASTE for 3 mins. Then remove and keep aside.

    Add a little more oil to the pan and fry the cooked rice over medium heat for 5 mins, stirring occasionally. (Don’t move the rice around the pan too much so that it can start to crackle and colour a little bit.)

  3. Add the Korean flavours

    Stir the GOCHUJANG, the DOENJANG and the spring onions into the rice.

    Return the cabbage to the pan and add any cooked leftovers you're using.

  4. Fry the eggs

    Fry 2 eggs in a separate pan, keeping the yolks soft.

  5. Serve!

    Serve the rice with a fried egg on top, breaking the yolk into the rice to eat.

I made this version with rice noodles, aubergine and the cabbage and the result was amazing, let's just say everyone kept asking for more! Definitely to repeat (with prawns next!), great use of leftovers and easy to add veggies into kids meal

Really tasty and a good meal to use up any leftovers. Egg yolk helped to ensure the dish wasn’t dry. Flavours subtle but worked well
