Kimbap is a Korean-style sushi roll filled with seasoned rice, vegetables, and protein, garnished with daikon radish microgreens for added freshness and nutrition.



Nutritional Benefits: 


Kimbap is a versatile dish that can be filled with various ingredients, providing a balanced meal. Microgreens add additional vitamins and minerals, making this dish not only tasty but also nutritious.


Microgreens:


  • Daikon Radish Microgreens: Daikon radish microgreens have a mild, peppery flavour with a hint of sweetness. They add a fresh, crunchy texture to the kimbap and are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as minerals like calcium and potassium, providing an extra nutritional boost to the dish.**

Ingredients:


  • 4 sheets sushi seaweed (nori)

  • 2 cups cooked short-grain rice, seasoned with rice vinegar and sugar

  • 4 slices ham or cooked spam

  • 4 strips cucumber

  • 4 strips carrot, blanched

  • 4 strips crab stick

  • 4 strips egg omelette

  • Sesame oil for brushing

  • Handful of daikon radish microgreens

Instructions:


  1. Place a sheet of sushi seaweed on a bamboo sushi mat or clean kitchen towel.

  2. Spread a thin layer of seasoned rice evenly over the seaweed, leaving a small border along one edge.

  3. Arrange slices of ham or cooked spam, cucumber, carrot, crab stick, and egg omelette in a row along the centre of the rice.

  4. Starting from the edge closest to the filling, roll up the seaweed tightly, using the bamboo mat or towel to help shape the roll.

  5. Brush the edge of the seaweed with a little water to seal the roll.

  6. Using a sharp knife, slice the kimbap roll into bite-sized pieces.

  7. Brush the sliced kimbap with sesame oil for extra flavour and shine.

  8. Garnish each slice of kimbap with a small handful of daikon radish microgreens for added freshness and nutritional benefits.
