I’m starting a new series called Weekend Project where I challenge you to take a day to shop and cook something you would normally eat at a restaurant.
I’m going to kick it off with Okonomiyaki. It’s a savory pancake filled with umami goodness. It’s another favorite from my time spent in Japan. During the weekends my parents would take us to the local department store to browse with the 500 Yen they gave my brother and I (it’s about $5) and after we would meet at the door of the supermarket and walk to the okonomiyaki stall outside to get some to take home.
I’ve been trying different ways to cook this at home without using the premix we usually get at the Japanese grocery store and I finally got the bulk I was looking for. I also made the sauce a little bit healthier by replacing the traditional kewpie with some vegan mayo.
**P.S. You can also add in strips of bacon at this stage to take it over the top.
Im a pancake lover, would like to try this recipe.
Love this recipe. I never thought to make a savory pancake with regular pancake mix. Love the close up picture too!
We love making savory pancakes in our house and these look fabulous! I love the use of shaved brussels sprouts too! 😉
This looks delicious and relatively easy to do! Great post and pictures also.
I love okonomiyaki! I’m used to the ones that look really heavy though, with tons of condiments and stuff on top. These look much lighter and refreshing!
