This is a fun, tasty way to get your vegetables.
This is a fun way for young and old to get their vegetables.
I got this recipe for the Japanese dish, Okonomiyaki, from Malden Patch food writer Kate Sedan. Okonomi means “all your favorite things” and “yaki” means fried.
Most of the work comes from having to chop the vegetables. But once that’s done, it’s fairly easy to prepare. I chopped so many vegetables the first time I made this that I had enough left over to prepare these Japanese pancakes two more nights (for 3 people each night).
The only special ingredient you need is Okonomi Sauce, which you can get at Japanese grocery stores. I got mine at Ebisuya, in Medford Square. The other sauce that you can squirt over this you can make yourself by combining worcestershire sauce with mayonnaise.
Here’s Kate’s recipe. Give it a try.
