I make these tasty crunchy pancakes often…
Vegetarian or with meat added they are an easy fix at home or on the water.
(link to my usual recipe for Okonomiyaki )
When we provisioned last we bought a small package of broccoli slaw
so instead of all that chopping and julienne-ing
I am using them for a quick and easy supper tonight…
4 cups broccoli or cole slaw mix
2 green onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp Bragg seasoning (or your preferred soya sauce)
2 eggs
1/4 cups flour
When I have leftover grilled chicken, beef or pork I add about 1 cup chopped to the mixture.
cooking oil ( a splash of sesame oil in it adds a nice touch)
Heat oil in skillet
Mix the rest of the ingredients together
Drop by large spoonfuls into hot skillet and flattened with back of spatula
Cook in batches flipping when browned on one side.
When browned on second side set aside in tented foil…
(what I now call my warming oven)
Serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, sriracha sauce and more Bragg seasoning.




  1. Oh wow, I am so impressed that you made okononiyaki! This is not a very widely known Japanese dish. It's soooo delicious, I love them! In Japan they have okononiyaki speciality restaurants that are almost buffet style, they are so cool!

    I am not really sure what a traditional Oknoniyaki would be like but throwing a bunch of crunchy veggies together with a bit of Asian seasoning is always a hit with us.
