“Easy kimbap (Korean sushi roll) recipe! Easy kimbap recipe. In Korea, it is called Yachae Kimbap (야채 김밥). It means vegetable kimbap and this is the most basic kimbap variety available in Korea.”
Kimbap is a popular picnic food in korean. This vegetable kimbap is super easy to make and is purely vegetarian.
(wiki) Gimbap is a Korean dish made from cooked rice and other ingredients that are rolled in gim dried sheets of seaweed—and served in bite-sized slices. The dish is often part of a packed meal, or dosirak, to be eaten at picnics and outdoor events, and can serve as a light lunch along with danmuji (yellow pickled radish) and kimchi.
