Hello my dears,
 
Today I want to share with you my favorite Japanese dish: Okonomiyaki. This savory pancake with cabbage caught my eye right away and is super easy and quick to prepare. At the moment it’s my favorite “home office” lunch!
 
I still remember the first time I ate okonomiyaki. In fact, I got to know it dish in Bali. After looking for a restaurant (or rather Warung) near our accommodation, we came across this small Japanese restaurant. The menu didn’t have a lot of vegetarian food, so okonomiyaki was the only and one choice for me. Luckily! Because I fell in love with this dish from the first bite. 
I was even happier when I had to chance to try okonomiyaki at its origin: in Japan. There you have super cozy okonomiyaki restaurants in which each guest has their own small grill plate on which you can fry your own okonomiyaki. Such a great and delicious experience!
 
Since it is relatively difficult to find vegetarian or even vegan dishes in Japan, I ate okonomiyaki almost every day. And I didn’t think that was a bad thing 🙂This savory pancake is made with cabbage and served with mayonnaise and tonkatsu sauce. There are many options for the combinations.
 
In order to bring Japan into my kitchen, I made the recipe vegan with plant-based ingredients only. You will be amazed at how delicious and easy it is. Maybe it will also become your favorite “home office” lunch?
 
Enjoy & much love,
Elisabeth

Ingredients

Okonomiyaki:
  • 200g flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cabbage (finely shredded, about 400g)
  • 1 bunch spring onions (chopped)
  • 200 ml water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp flex seeds
Tonkatsu Sauce:
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp mustard
Other:
  • Vegan mayonaise
  • Fried Onions

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the okonomiyaki. Mix gently to a nice dough. Leave some spring onions aside for topping later.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush the skillet with some oil and scoop half of the cabbage mixture into the skillet to make the first Okonomiyaki. Flatten the mixture with a spatula and cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until brown. Repeat with the remaining mixture, wiping out the skillet and brushing more oil, if needed.
  3. While Okonomiyaki is frying, prepare the Tonkatsu Sauce by mixing together soy sauce, brown sugar, tomato paste, and mustard.
  4. Top the okonomiyaki with tonkatsu sauce and mayonnaise. Sprinkle with fried onions. Serve hot and enjoy.
