Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake)

Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake)

When you get a whole cabbage in your veggie box from Magic Meadow for the week - okonomiyaki is the solution!! Cabbage is high in fibre, vitamin C, has anti-inflammatory properties and is known for its detoxification properties.  It's always good to cook cabbage as it is a goitrogen which can down regulate thyroid function when eaten in its raw form.  I like to always use brazil nuts which are high in selenium when I'm using cabbage to support thyroid function. 

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of flour (I use coconut or buckwheat)
  • 2 brazil nuts (crushed, blitzed in a food processor. 
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon tamari (soy sauce alternative)
  • 1/2 tsp of sesame oil
  • 1 cup of finely shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 leek finely chopped
  • 4 rinds of nitrate free bacon (or olives)
  • coconut oil or butter for cooking

Method

  • Whisk the eggs, flour, baking powder, tamari and sesame oil well.
  • Add the cabbage, leek, bacon, and mix well.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan.
  • Scoop a large spoonful of the mixture into the pan, so there are 4 seperate pancakes (depending on size of pan).
  • Cook for 1.5-2 minutes.  Repeat until mixture is finished.  Should make 10-15 pancakes.

Serve with mayonnaise or hummus as a side dish or as a main meal.
