Directions:Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 23 mins
- Let rice cool a bit and set aside.
- Saute carrots strips with sesame oil, garlic seasoning, season salt. (no certain amount, just eye-ball it)
- Beat 2 eggs together with the chopped green onion and a pinch of salt. Fry flat like an egg pancake and set aside.
- Then, mix the rice with the vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil and a little garlic-all listed.
- Cut egg into strips about a quarter inch wide.
- Blanche fresh spinach in boiling water for a few seconds or cook thawed spinach. Rise with cold water and squeeze to almost dry and mix spinach with sesame oil, garlic and soy sauce.
- To assemble, put rice on a bamboo roller (I do not have one and it works fine, just not as tightly rolled).
- Spread rice over 2/3 of the dried sea weed sheet/wrapper, lay carrots, spinach, and egg on top.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds and roll like a jelly roll.
- Seal edges with a bit of water rubbed where the two edges meet and pressing or squeezing firmly so it stays stuck.
- Cut into 1/2 inch rounds using a SHARP knife rinsing between cuts if necessary.
- You can adapt this to your own tastes, some people put imitation crab meat or cucumber in them.
The Egg Pancake
- 1/4 C Korean Soy
- 2 Tbs. water
- Pinch red pepper flakes
- Sesame seeds
- A little sesame oil
For a tighter wrap, you can wrap the logs in saran wrap tightly before cutting and place them in the refridgerator.
Use a sharp knife for easy cutting AND in-between slices clean off knife and wet lightly with a little water.
