Everybody loves Korean treats, all the more if they’re healthy and easy on the budget. Last November 18, resident chef, Christine Nguyen, taught the girls how to make Korea’s famous Kimbap. This recipe is easy on the wallet because with a fee of only 600 pesos, we were able to make at least 5 batches of Kimbap.
The ingredients used are the following:
Nori wrapper (10 pieces)
Fillings that were chopped:
Sesame seeds for seasoning.
The fillings were seasoned with a dash of sesame seed and afterwards, they were sautéed and cooked in low heat.
To give the Kimbap its rolled appearance, the Nori wrapper was placed on a flat surface and stuffed with moist rice. It was then seasoned with a bit of sesame oil to add flavor and stickiness. Afterwards, fillings, which consisted of carrots, scrambled egg, hotdog, and crabstick, were added until the roll was densely packed to make the Kimbap firm.
Afterwards, the Nori wrapper, now with rice and filling, was rolled until firm, and chopped into pieces. And voila! You have 10 pieces of Kimbap per Nori wrapper.
The girls were able to make their own Kimbap rolls, and in no time, the plates were filled and they were feasting on their healthy concoctions, complete with dips such as ketchup, mayonnaise, Kikkoman and Wasabi.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be a burden on the wallet. Instead, it can come straight from your own kitchen.
