Today I am bringing you another quick vegan dinner recipe that is simple, quick and has lots of options to bulk it up. This recipe requires just 10 ingredients and 20 minutes which makes it the perfect weeknight dinner!
How to make Vegan Korean Beef & Rice Bowls
When I say these bowls are the EASIEST dinner, I really mean it! To start things off, get your rice cooking. I used dry basmati rice and cooked it up in about 15 minutes. You could make this meal go even quicker by using leftover rice or frozen rice packs. No matter which option you choose, it will still be quick.
Next, combine your sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set it aside. We’re basically 75% done at this point…see, easy!
Heat up some sesame oil in a pan and add garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds, then add the vegan beef crumbles. Let it all cook down for 2-3 minutes, then add the sauce. Let it get hot and bubbly, then stir in some green onion. That’s it. You’re done!
How to serve Vegan Korean Beef & Rice Bowls
To serve, add some hot rice to a bowl and top it with the vegan beef mixture. Add some more green onions and sesame seeds and you are ready to eat!
This recipe is a great starting point for lots of variations. Cook up some broccolini or bok choy. You could also add some carrots & onions to the vegan beef crumbles while cooking. And I wouldn’t be mad about a crispy egg roll on the side as well.
