Kimbap, a popular Korean dish, offers a delightful combination of flavors and textures in a convenient, portable package.


To make a quick and easy kimbap, gather sushi rice, roasted seaweed sheets (nori), carrots, cucumbers, pickled radish, and your protein (cooked beef or imitation crab). After cooling the sushi rice, cut the vegetables into thin, matchstick strips.

Ingredients and Preparation

Place a sheet of nori on the rolling mat, shiny side down. Spread a thin layer of sushi rice evenly over the nori, leaving a small border at the top. Arrange your chosen vegetables and protein in a line across the center of the rice


Carefully lift the edge of the mat closest to you, and roll it over the ingredients, using gentle pressure to shape the kimbap into a tight cylinder.

Achieving the perfect kimbap might take a bit of practice, but here are some tips to ensure success. Keep your hands slightly wet when handling the rice to prevent sticking.

Tips for Success

Use a sharp knife to slice the rolls cleanly. If you’re making kimbap ahead of time, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap to retain freshness

Don’t forget to have fun and enjoy the process—kimbap making is as enjoyable as the eating!
