Ingredients

  • Perilla leaves
  • 1
    Firm Tofu
  • 1/2
    can Spam
  • 1
    tbsp Butter
  • 1/2
    bowl Kimchi
    cut
  • 1
    tbsp Sugar
  • 1
    tbsp Sesame oil
  • 1
    Egg
    fried

Instructions

1
Wash Perilla leaves. Perilla leaves are optional but recommended!
2
Boil 1 Firm Tofu and slice it
3
Protein is optional. We used Korean 1/2 can Spam because that’s what we had at home at the time but you can try other proteins. E.g. Pork belly or bulgogi.
4
Stir fry 1/2 bowl Kimchi (cut). The trick is to add 1 tbsp Sugar and 1 tbsp Butter. Finish with 1 tbsp Sesame oil.
5
Plate it the way you want. Usually it’s tofu surrounding kimchi in the middle, but there’s no one right way to do this! Optionally add 1 Egg (fried)
6
Wrap it in perilla leaves and enjoy!

This is a spin on a simple Korean dish tofu-kimchi, which literally is tofu with stir fried kimchi.
