If you’ve never tasted a cabbage pancake, also known as okonomiyaki, then you’re in for a treat. It has eggs like a frittata, but gets added richness and body from sautéed cabbage and flour. Fear not the flip! A nonstick skillet makes this easy to turn, and the cabbage will help everything stick together. If you’re nervous, use a flexible silicone spatula to loosen the edges of the pancake before flipping. Ingredient check: Tamari is similar to soy sauce, but it’s gluten-free. Make sure to check the label if you’re serving anyone that’s gluten-intolerant.
