1 cup sushi rice;
2 tablespoons of rice vinegar;
8 tablespoons of sesame seeds;
8 sheets of nori seaweed;
200 g tofu;
2 small cucumbers;
1 bell pepper;
wasabi, pickled ginger and soy sauce, for serving.


Boil rice: rinse under running water, then pour two cups of boiling water and simmer under a closed lid. When rice is ready, add rice vinegar, stir and let cool to room temperature. Then add sesame seeds to the rice and stir.

Wash vegetables and cut into strips. Do the same with tofu. Lay the nori sheet shiny side down on a bamboo mat. Spread warm glutinous rice over it—about three tablespoons per sheet—leaving about an inch of nori at one end.

Lay out the filling: cucumber, bell pepper, tofu. Use a mat to roll up the roll. Then, with a sharp knife dipped in rice vinegar, cut the rolls into pieces 2-3 centimeters wide.

Serve with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.

Lean shawarma

1 small head of Beijing cabbage;
1 tomato;
1 cucumber;
a bunch of green onions and dill;
100 g of carrots in Korean;
2 tablespoons of tomato sauce;
1 teaspoon of olive oil;
½ teaspoon citric acid and salt.
Finely chop the cabbage. If there is no Beijing, replace it with regular white cabbage. Add salt, citric acid and olive oil and let sit for 10-15 minutes.

Wash vegetables and cut into thin strips. Lavash cut into two equal parts. On each half lay out and distribute one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Lay out the filling (do not forget about Korean carrots) and roll the pita bread into a roll.

If desired, the resulting shawarma can be browned in a dry hot frying pan.
