Cabbage Pancake

Cabbage Pancake

One of the most delicious things we ate on our honeymoon (over two years ago now and I'm still thinking about it), was a Japanese-style pancake. I was delighted to find a recipe published in a recent issue of Real Simple, but upon reading the ingredients, wanted to take it up a notch in terms of the nutrition. A few tweaks resulted in a version that is gluten- and grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly!

Cabbage Pancake

Adapted from Real Simple's recipe

  • 4 cups green cabbage, shredded (I bought pre-shredded)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos (tamari works too)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil-based mayo (like Primal Kitchen brand)
  • 1/4 cup organic ketchup
  • 1 tsp sriracha 

Thinly slice scallions, separating the white part from the green. Set green slices aside. 

In a large bowl, combine cabbage, almond flour, white scallions, ginger, and coconut aminos. Add egg and mix well. 

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Spoon half of cabbage mixture in center of skillet and flatten with back of wooden spoon until desired size (6-8 inches in diameter). Cook 5-7 minutes and then flip. Cook 4-5 more minutes. Repeat process with rest of cabbage mixture.

Make dipping sauce: in a small bowl, combine mayo, ketchup and sriracha. Drizzle on top and sprinkle with green scallions. Enjoy!
