Let’s get chopping my friends. Make sure you brought your sharp knife today. This handy dandy tool and I are pretty good friends. If you are more into shredding veggies, its totally cool..this one will make your life easier. You crisper probably has tons of veggies like cabbage, green onions, carrots staring at you – let’s use them. We are starting the week right by eating lots of vegetables in the form of pancakes. Who does not like pancakes right? I am talking to all the vegetable haters..you will no longer look at green cabbage the same way.
Once serious chopping is out of the way, let’s throw some eggs and flour to bind colorful veggies together into the shape of a pancake, lightly fry them and BAM – we have vegetable pancakes, in your face!
I learned from here and also here that these vegetable pancakes are called Okonomiyaki, savory Japanese pancakes. The word okonomi, means ‘what you like’ or ‘what you want’, and yaki meaning ‘grilled’ or ‘cooked’ so feel free to use veggies, kimchi, or meat or whatever you like.
