Cook Rice & Prepare Ingredients:In medium pot, bring 11⁄3 cup water to boil. Stir in rice, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer 15 minutes until water is absorbed. Keep pot covered and let rice absorb water off the heat. Fluff finished rice with fork. Thinly slice spring onion on a slight angle. Peel carrot, cut into matchsticks or grate. Thinly slice cucumber into rounds.
Cook Baby Spinach & Broccolini:Meanwhile, cut Chinese broccoli into 3-4 cm pieces. Remove mushroom stems, thinly slice caps. Peel and roughly chop garlic. Heat oil in a frypan or wok on medium until hot. Add Chinese broccoli and garlic, cook 2-3 minutes or until bright green and tender-crisp, and leaves have wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate, cover to keep warm.
Cook Mushrooms:In the same pan, heat a little more oil on medium. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook 1-3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer cooked mushrooms to the plate with the Chinese broccoli, keeping them separate.
Finish Rice:In the same pan, heat a little more oil on medium-high. Add the cooked rice and cook about 1-2 minutes, or until dry and slightly golden, stirring occasionally. Add gochujang, sesame oil and soy sauce to taste. Cook about 1 minute longer, stirring. Transfer the rice to bowls.
Cook Eggs:In the same pan, heat a little more oil on low. Carefully add the eggs to the pan, one at a time, keeping them separate. Season with salt and pepper. Cook eggs (sunny side up, to your liking), 3-5 minutes, or until the whites are set and no longer translucent.
You Plate It:Top each bowl of rice with the Chinese broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, cucumber and a cooked egg. Garnish with the spring onion and black sesame seeds. Enjoy!
