Okonomiyaki made with Brussel sprouts instead of cabbage. OMG you guys, this was sooooo delicious, and so simple to make. I bought the sauce online but i have added the recipe for a homemade version. In case you don’t know what an okonomiyaki it is a Japanese cabbage pancake covered in Japanese mayo and a Worchester type sticky sauce. I made it with shaved Brussel sprouts as i had some that needed using up, but its a great way to get sprout haters to eat them. I seem to be really into Japanese food lately, I really want to visit japan its at the top of my list of places, do you have a list? mine is massive i don’t think i will ever get around to ticking them all off. fingers crossed i can do a stop over there for a few days when i go to Australia in may. Any way this recipe is so simple and i guarantee you will enjoy it. I cut it into little squared to make it easier to eat.
- 3 cups of shaved Brussel sprouts
- 3/4 cups plain flour
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup water or stock
- 2 spring onions (scallions) finely chopped

shave the sprouts in a food processer with the slicing attachment then mix in a bowl with grated carrot and flour and finely chopped onions then add the water or stock and eggs mix then In a pan add some sesame oil and add the mixture and pat down, once golden underneath slip out of the pan onto a plate and tip over and brown the other side with the lid on until the centre has set.
