Number of Servings: 2


    2 cups cabbage, finely shredded
    1 cup leeks, well washed and chopped (see head notes)
    2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour (or apf flour)
    a couple pinches of fine grain sea salt
    2 eggs, beaten
    1+ tablespoon olive oil

    Garnish: toasted slivered almonds, chives/ herbs


Combine the cabbage, leeks, flour, and salt in a bowl. Toss until everything is coated with a dusting of flour. Stir in the eggs and mix until everything is evenly coated.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add a generous splash of olive oil. Scoop the cabbage mixture into the pan, and using a metal spatula press it into a round pancake shape, flat as you can get it. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the bottom is golden. To flip the okonomiyaki, slide it out of the skillet onto a plate. Place another plate on top and flip both (together) over. If you need a bit more oil in your skillet, add it now, before sliding the okonomiyaki back into the skillet. Again press down a bit with a spatula and cook until golden on this side - another 3 -5 minutes.

When you are finished cooking, sprinkle with toasted almonds and chives, and slide it onto a cutting board to cut into wedges. Enjoy immediately.

Serves 1 - 2.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one eating okonomiyaki! Though I add a bit of chopped up shrimp to mine, and don't bother with the leeks. I'm also fond of using the tiniest bit of tonkatsu sauce (or okonomiyaki sauce) to dress up my meal. :) Thanks for sharing! - 6/12/09

  • Add dashi stock powder and bakng powder to a plain flour to make the batter. This is a very heavy recipie what with the whole wheat flour (a half and half mix with white flour would be better if you`re being concious of that). - 7/10/10

  • Thanks for sharing! We hosted a Japanese high school student last year, and again this year and we all love this! They don't know the recipe though! Our student last year used to add some type of meat, like chopped bologna or ham to it. She always served it with sweet and sour sauce. - 4/21/10

  • We've been eating this all winter to use up scraps of cabbage in the fridge. I eat it topped with toasted nuts and furikake sprinkles and with a bit of roasted tofu on the side. Yum! - 4/6/10
