Recipes 08/01/2018

If you haven’t tried a bibimbap, now is the time! Loaded with the goodness of crisp vegetables, warm rice, a fried egg and divine Swiss brown mushrooms, combined with chicken and chilli sauce. This Meadows Mushrooms recipe is definitely a winner.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 3-4 cups hot steamed rice (we use Sunrice)
  • 10 cm cucumber cut into matchsticks
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 4 Tbsp + 1 tsp oil (we use Olivado avocado cooking oil)
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce, plus extra for serving
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 3 tsp sesame oil (we use Olivado Extra Virgin Sesame seed oil )
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus extra to season
  • 300g chicken mince (we use Waitoa free range)
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 2 cups sprouts
  • 1 carrot peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 4 eggs
  • 250g Meadows Swiss Brown Mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp sweet chilli sauce (we love Barkers of Geraldine)


  1. In a small bowl, combine cucumber, rice vinegar, sesame seeds and 1 tablespoon of oil and leave to marinade.
  2. In a medium bowl combine soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and pepper. Add chicken mince to the mixture and mix well using a fork to break the mince up. Cover and refrigerate it for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in medium-hot skillet and cook mushrooms for 5 minutes, then set aside.
  4. Lightly stir fry the sprouts, the carrots and edamame separately one after another in the same pan adding some cooking oil in between if necessary. Set aside.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and cook chicken with marinade, stirring frequently to separate the mince until cooked through (about 7 minutes). Mix cooked mushrooms and chilli sauce, then heat through.
  6. While the chicken is cooking, fry eggs in a separate frying pan. Take care not to overcook the eggs.
  7. Divide hot steamed rice in individual bowls. Top with chicken and mushrooms, sprouts, carrot, edamame and cucumber. Place a fried egg in the middle of each bowl.
  8. Pour soy sauce over rice bowls and season with black pepper if desired.
