Kimbap is a Korean dish that’s normally served as a snack, or if you leave it in a roll, I would eat it like a lunch on the go.
- Large Seaweed sheets (Japanese ones are called Nori, Korean ones are called Kim)
- Freshly made pot-o-rice (short-grain, sticky rice)
- Eggs (whisked together and cooked in one large sheet like an omelette, sliced)
- Handful of blanched Spinach with salt
- Thinly sliced 1/4 cucumber
- Thinly sliced carrots, cooked in a frypan with sesame oil, salt, and pepper
- Thinly sliced 1/4 green bell pepper, same prep as carrots
- Stick of pickled daikon radish (easily found in asian-food stores, the yellow stick above)
Flatten some fresh rice on a seaweed sheet, lay out the ingredients beautifully, and roll it up with the help of a towel and some cling wrap if you’re like me (they make sushi-rolling mats that make it easier). Sometimes it helps to wet the edges of the seaweed to help it stick closed. Make it even fancier by sprinkling the rolls with sesame seeds and dipping the rolls in soy sauce. Slicing is optional, but prettier. Easy to pack up and keeps in the fridge for quite a while!
Feel free to experiment with different types of veggies and ingredients! My favorite kimbap has spam in it :3, but you can make it healthier or not depending on what you put in each roll!
