Wakame Seaweed and Kimchi Toast

Wakame Seaweed and Kimchi Toast

I made some toast using the great taste and texture of thick wakame seaweed. The mayonnaise and kimchi give it a slightly grown-up taste.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Rice bread
1 slice
Butter or margarine
as needed
Dried wakame seaweed preserved in salt
a pinch
(Soak in water, then cut when plumped
2 heaping tablespoons
2 heaping tablespoons
About 1 tablespoon, to taste
Spring onion (chopped)
2~3 tablespoons
Pizza cheese (melting cheese)
to taste


1. Wipe the salt off of the wakame seaweed and soak in water to rehydrate. Cut into small pieces. Or you can take a bit from something else you're making.
2. In a bowl, combine the drained wakame seaweed, kimchi, and mayonnaise. The ratio of the wakame, kimchi, and mayonnaise should be 2 : 2 : 1~2.
3. Spread butter on the bread and top with the mixture from Step 2.
4. Top with the chopped onion, cheese, and crushed walnuts. Toast in an toaster oven until the top is toasted a light brown and enjoy.
