Okonomiyaki

vegan okonomiyaki.
This is a Japanese dish okono means ‘how you like it’ and Yaki means grill.
Recipes vary but the batter in made with egg. This one has no egg and is completely vegan.
The batter was : half a block of tofu, 2/3 cup of plant based milk,2 table spoons of nutritional yeast,1/4 teaspoon of turmeric,1 and 1/2 table spoon of potato starch salt and pepper and I added a tablespoon of white miso. Blend all this together in a food processor . Then I mixed in some sliced nappa cabbage, chopped green onion and some bean sprouts .
Spoon the mixture on to some parchment paper that’s been cut to fit your frying pan ( skillet) and spread it out .  I find it easier to cook on one side then to turn it top the mixture with another sheet of parchment paper slide it from the skillet and on to a plate and then flip it over back onto your skillet.
After it’s been cooked on both sides I covered the okonomiyaki with a special sauce of a mix of one tablespoon each of organic Worcestershire sauce,ketchup,tamari, mirin and maple syrup. I then added vegan mayo more chopped onion and aonori .
