Instructions

Make the Rice
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover and cook for 12 mins.
  • Remove the pot from the heat. Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Pickle the Radish
2
  • Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice the radish.
  • Pop the radish into a small bowl along with the red wine vinegar, 1 tsp sugar and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
  • Mix together and set aside. Stir frequently.
Prep the Veg
3
  • Peel and grate the ginger. Use a teaspoon to easily scrape away the peel.
  • Roughly chop the mushrooms
  • Place a pan over high heat with the sesame oil.
  • Once hot, add the mushrooms and ginger.
  • Cook until charred, shifting occasionally, 3-4 mins.
Add the Lentils
4
  • Meanwhile, drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
  • Reduce the heat of the pan to medium-high. 
  • Add half the gochujang, soy sauce, coconut milk, lentils, and ½ tsp sugar (double for 4p) to the pan.
  • Cover and simmer for 8-10 mins. 
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar. Add a splash of water if the lentils are too dry.

TIP: You might want to add the gochujang a little at a time, tasting as you go—it's spicy!

Roast the Kale
5
  • Meanwhile, strip the leafy part of the kale from the stem and chop into bite-sized pieces. Discard the stems (they're too tough to eat). 
  • Spread the kale out on a lined baking tray.
  • Toss with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil.
  • When the oven is hot, bake on the middle shelf until crispy, 6-8 mins.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the aioli with the remaining gochujang.
Finishing and Serve
6
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between bowls.
  • Arrange the pickled radish, roasted kale, spicy lentils and mushrooms alongside.
  • Finish with a drizzle of the gochujang aioli.
