Recipe Ingredients for Japanese pancake

2 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/4 cup chopped onion
15 rehydrated, stems removed and caps sliced shiitake mushrooms
12 oz silken soft tofu
3 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp white miso
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

Recipe Directions for Japanese pancake

  1. (serve with black sesame seeds)

  2. tonkatsu or okonomi sauce, for drizzling

  3. Japanese kewpie mayonnaise, for drizzling (not vegan)

  4. 1. Preheat your oven to 400F. In a large bowl, mix together the cabbage, carrot, onion and shiitake mushrooms. In a food processor, puree the tofu and scrape the sides as needed, until the sauce is creamy and smooth. Add the cornstarch, yeast, miso, mirin, salt and process until well mixed. Stir the tofu puree in with the shredded vegetables.

  5. 2. Coat the bottom of a 10-inch (I used a 9-inch) springform pan with half of the oil. Spread the tofu into the pan and press it to make a flat, thin pancake, then drizle the remaining oil on top. Bake until the the pancake is golden and firm in the middle. Asbell suggests 30 minutes, but ours took more like 60 minutes.

  6. 3. Allow to cool. Cut into 4 pieces and drizzle with the okonomi suace and mayonnaise. Then sprinkle black sesame seeds and shredded nori overtop.
