Preparation

  1. Start cooking the rice according to package directions. In a small bowl, mix together all sauce ingredients.

Add the garlic, zucchini, and mushrooms and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add the spinach, and stir-fry just until the spinach is wilted and tender, about a minute. Remove from heat and toss the vegetables with the tofu, cucumber, bean sprouts, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Set aside vegetables, and fry 6 eggs over easy.
  3. To serve the bibimbap, place a scoop of rice in each bowl, top with some stir-fried vegetables, place a cooked egg on top and garnish with sliced green onions. Serve the sauce on the side for drizzling.
