• This recipe cooks double the amount of rice needed for this meal, cool the rice you don’t eat and place in the fridge and use the remaining rice to make the Friday night egg fried rice.
• Bibimbap is also commonly served with a fried egg on top – if desired you can add this to your meal.
• Use brown rice instead of white to add more fibre to this meal.
