Kimchi Tuna Gimbap

Kimchi Tuna Gimbap

Kimbap is similar to the Japanese sushi roll. It is easily customizable and even easier to make. All you have to do is add your favorite ingredients onto rice and seaweed and roll it up!

Kimbap is a popular picnic item in Korea. It is easy to travel with and easy to eat! They can be super refreshing on hot days and super filling depending what you add into it. We decided to make a spicy kimchi tuna kimbap with our Kimchi Mayo sauce! Read on to see how we did it.
