To prepare the eggs:

  • In a pan over medium heat, add 1 teaspoon of avocado oil (or other types of oil), and half of the eggs. Cook until both sides are set for about 2 minutes. Do the same with the rest.
  • Slice the eggs into strips.

To prepare the carrots and bell peppers:

  • In a pan over medium heat, add the avocado oil, carrot, and salt. Cook until softened for about 1 minute.
  • In the pan over medium heat, add the avocado oil, red bell pepper, and salt. Cook until softened for about 1 minute.

To prepare the steamed rice:

  • Season the warm steamed rice with salt, sesame oil, and toasted sesame. Mix well.

To assemble the small rolls:

  • Place 1 cup of water on the side for sealing.
  • Put the quartered roasted seaweed on a working surface, shiny side down. Add some egg strips to it, brush water at the top edge, and roll it up.
  • Do the same with the carrot, bell pepper, ham, crab sticks, cucumber, pickled radish, and braised burdock. Do the same with the rest.

To assemble the flower rolls:

  • Place the halved roasted seaweed on a bamboo mat, shiny side down. Spread the rice mixture evenly, and leave about an inch at the top edge.
  • Arrange all the small rolls on it, and brush water at the top edge. Roll up the bamboo mat, and seal the flower roll. Repeat with the rest.

To serve:

  • Lightly brush sesame oil on the flower rolls. Slice it into about ½ inch pieces. Enjoy!

I’d like to take this opportunity and thank everyone for your support! Honestly, I don’t always cook the perfect-looking dishes. But one thing I’m sure, it’s that I always cook with my heart. And guess what? When you cook with your heart — when you respect the ingredients and treat them with kindness, the food naturally tastes better. Enjoy!
