Gimbap (Kimbap) Korean Seaweed Rice Rolls

Dinner tonight is maki’n me so happy! Gimbap, or Kimbap…Korean seaweed rice rolls!

I watched Soo-ji roll these beauties in Let’s Eat Season 2 and knew I wanted to give it a try! This week’s Tuesday Cook Club was the perfect reason to “roll with it”!

Yes, it looks like sushi…what’s the difference? The rice! Sushi rice is seasoned with vinegar while the rice to make Gimbap is tossed with sesame oil. Let’s make the rice and gets things rolling…

Gimbap
2 cups of short grain white rice cooked with 3 cups water then seasoned with salt and about a tablespoon of sesame oil.

Cook the meat and set up the rolling station…

Gimbap
1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks and sautéed a couple of minutes
5 eight inch strips of danmuji (yellow pickled radish)
3 eggs, cooked as a flat omelette and sliced into strips
10 oz spinach, blanched and seasoned with garlic cloves, salt and sesame oil

Go for it…it just takes practice and I had so much fun with it! The results were so satisfying…
