Vegan Okonomiyaki – Cabbage Carrot Pancakes. Japanese Okonomiyaki made vegan. Served with home made tonkatsu sauce.Makes 5 to 6 pancakes
Easy weeknight fix up. Vegan Okonomiyaki Pancakes. Chop up the veggies, make the pancake mix, cook on stove top and done.
Okonomiyaki are usually made with eggs, veggies and meats. Of course we use whatever veggies we have on hand. Chickpea flour adds color and a slight egg flavor with the kala namak. Add veggies of choice, mushrooms, add more nori and serve with okonomiyaki sauce, vegan mayo and picked ginger. Use all chickpea flour to make these gluten-free
One thing I need to learn to do more of this year is scheduling. Currently I don’t schedule anything unless really needed. Everything that gets posted on the blog, on facebook and other social media is organic. it depends on what I made that week or what I am craving and my mood basically 🙂 We made these yesterday and even though i have a few posts in drafts like a Boston Cream pie cake, these make it to the blog today! This definitely does not scale well. The planning helps clears up the weekend and vacation and reduces all the instant reactive work. Always more things to learn!
