Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kaipen is a Laotian snack made of fresh water green algae, vegetables, and sesame seeds. Kaipen is produced in the city of Luang Prabang in Northern Central Laos. During the hot dry summer months, when the river level is at its lowest, the green algae, called kai, is gathered from the river bottom. It is washed in the river and then hung to dry. After drying for a day, the kai is pounded and pressed into thin sheets along with vegetables which may include green onions, galangal, garlic and or tomato, and sprinkled with sesame seeds. The finished product resembles a large sheet of Japanese nori.show more
