You can also have it as a SIMPLE BIBIMBAP. This seasoned soybean sprouts mixed with warm Korean rice is just SO DARN YUMMY! Watch to the end of this video on how to make this simple soybean sprouts bibimbap.

Step One: Rinsing

In a large mixing bowl, fill with cold water, and submerge the fresh soybean sprouts. Gently move the soybean sprouts around the bowl, pour into a strainer. Repeat this process 3 times.


Step Two: Blanching

Using a large or medium size pot, fill with water halfway (enough to fully submerge the soybeans), and bring to boil. Then add 1 tablespoon of salt to the boiling water. (Your stove heat remains at high.) Add the soybean sprouts and cook for 3 minutes, without the lid on.

TIP: When you cook beans and fresh soybean sprouts, it gives off this funky-odor. In Korean, we call that "BeeLinNeh" 비린내 ("fishy smell"). To prevent this funky-odor, we add salt to the boiling water and blanch the soybean sprouts without the lid on. Then quickly bring the pot over to the sink and drain in a strainer. Quickly, rinse the blanched soybean sprouts under running water. Once the blanched soybean sprouts feel lukewarm to touch, it is ready.

TIP: Do not squeeze the blanched soybean sprouts. Just gently shake off the excess by tossing in a strainer. Not squeezing the blanched soybean sprouts ensures that these sprouts remain crunchy and juicy!


Step Three:

Non-Spicy Soybean Sprouts Side Dish 고소한 콩나물무침

In a mixing bowl, add the blanched/cooled down soybean sprouts and following items.

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 소금 (blanching 끓는 물에)

  • 1/2 Tablespoon 큰술 Minced Scallions 다진 파

  • 1 Teaspoon 작은술 Sesame Oil 참기름

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Minced Garlic 다진 마늘

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Sesame Seed 참깨

  • 2 Small Pinches 작은 꼬집 소금

  • 1/4 Teaspoon 작은술 Beef Dashida 쇠고기 다시다 (optional)

  • 🌱Vegan (optional): 1/4 Teaspoon 작은술 연두 (concentrated broth enhancer/product link below)

Gently toss with your hands to ensure that all the ingredients are mixed in well with our blanched soybean sprouts. Have a taste test. Add more salt if you prefer a saltier taste. The saltiness should be just enough so that with Korean rice, it will be a perfectly balanced taste.


Spicy Soybean Sprouts Side Dish 매콤한 콩나물무침

To make the Spicy Sauce 매운 양념간장, add the following items in a small bowl and mix well. This spicy sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for several weeks. We will also use this spicy sauce to make our simple soybean sprouts bibimbap. I use this spicy sauce on so many Korean dishes!

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 Soy Sauce 간장

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술

  • ½ Tablespoon 큰술 GoChuGaRu 고춧가루

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Brown Sugar 흑설탕

  • ¼ Teaspoon 작은술 Minced Garlic 다진 마늘

  • ¼ Teaspoon 작은술 GoChuJang 고추장

  • 1 Small Pinch 작은 꼬집 Beef Dashida 쇠고기 다시다 (optional)

In a mixing bowl, add the blanched/cooled down soybean sprouts and following items.

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 소금 (blanching 끓는 물에)

  • 1.5 Tablespoon 큰술 Spicy Sauce 매운 양념간장 (see below)

  • 1/2 Tablespoon 큰술 Minced Scallions 다진 파

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Minced Garlic 다진 마늘

  • 1 Teaspoon 작은술 Sesame Oil 참기름

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Sesame Seed 참깨

  • 1/4 Teaspoon 작은술 Beef Dashida 쇠고기 다시다 (optional)

  • 🌱Vegan (optional): 1/4 Teaspoon 작은술 연두 (concentrated broth enhancer/product link below)

  • Optional: 3 Thin slices each 얇게 썬: Red, Green and Yellow Bell Pepper 빨강, 초록, 노랑 파프리카

Gently toss with your hands to ensure that all the ingredients are mixed in well with our blanched soybean sprouts. Have a taste test. If you prefer a spicer and saltier taste, add more of the spicy sauce. The spiciness/saltiness should be just enough so that with Korean rice, it will be a perfectly balanced taste.


For both of the non-spicy and spicy seasoned soybean sprouts, it is best enjoyed within in a few days of making it. It can be enjoyed right away. If you let it sit in the fridge for a few hours or overnight, you'll end up with the seasoned soybean sprouts juice, which is LITERALLY A MAGIC JUICE😋


Simple Soybean Sprout Bibimbap:

Add a large amount of the seasoned soybean sprouts (I prefer to use the spicy version for this) to a bowl of warm Korean rice. Add 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of the spicy sauce, some toasted seaweed crumbles, some of the seasoned soybean sprouts juice, and a drizzle of sesame oil. Mix it well and enjoy! This simple bibimbap is enjoyed by so many Koreans as our quick and easy bibimbap at home.


Bon appétit😋
