- 1¼ cups chopped scallions about 1 bunch
- 3 eggs beaten
- 3 packed cups finely shredded cabbage about ½ medium
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- extra-virgin olive oil for brushing
- ¾ tsp sea salt
- ½ sheet nori sliced
- vegan worcestershire sauce
- ½ cup microgreens optional
- pickled ginger
- sesame seeds
- In a large bowl, combine cabbage, panko, scallions and salt. Gently blend in the eggs. (Notice: the mix will be quite loose and cabbagey, not like a flour pancake batter. When it’s very tender, allow it to sit for 10 minutes).
- Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-heat. Brush the skillet with olive oil and then utilize a ¼ measuring cup to scoop the cabbage mixture to the skillet.
- Flatten gently with a spatula so the mix is all about ½-inch thick. Cook for 3 minutes each side, or till browned, turning heat to low needed. Repeat with the remaining mix, wiping the wiping out & brushing additional oil, as required.
- Drizzle the okonomiyaki with worcestershire sauce and thin strips of squeezed mayo. Top with pickled ginger, sesame seeds and nori. Sprinkle with microgreens, if wanted.
- Serve hot.
Okonomiyaki Recipe Tips:
- Eat it straight away. Like most egg-based dishes, okonomiyaki is best hot off the stove.
- Shred the cabbage finely. All these come out best when they are created out of very thin shreds of cabbage. In case your cabbage is too chunky, they will not hold together nicely, and they will get a denser, less delicate feel.
- Do not pack it down too much. When you put in the mix to your skillet, then lightly push it down with a spatula until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Your objective is simply to find the loose mix to come together. Do not press down it too much, or your okonomiyaki will be dense.
