Vegan Okonomiyaki, A.K.A. Japanese pancake or Japanese pizza is a delicious savory dish. This dish loaded with vegetables, like cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, green onions, and a very special root vegetable. This recipe is not only delicious, but it’s also pretty healthy-ish. I’ve adapted this recipe to make it vegan friendly, while keeping true to the authenticity.
This dish is quite a popular street food in Osaka, Japan. I have visited Osaka, and when I went to Dōtonbori (a tourist hotspot), there were a lot of places that were cooking okonomiyaki. The smell of the food mixing together, fills the street with the most flavorful aromas ever. It will definitely keep you hungry. Now, there are also two versions of okonomiyaki, the Osaka version, like I’ve mentioned and a Hiroshima style. This recipe will focus solely on the Osaka style.
I’ve actually made okonomiyaki before, this was when I took Japanese class for a couple years. And as a fun thing to do, our sensei taught us how to make it, keep in mind that this was way before I ever became plant-based. The original recipe is not vegan friendly, but it is very adaptable. I was able to create this recipe using plant-based ingredients and it tastes just as amazing as I remembered it to be.
