This recipe from Bare Minimum Dinners is the perfect way to turn that extra half head of cabbage lolling in the crisper drawer into a satisfying meal: shred and toss it with spicy chopped kimchi, scallions, and eggs to make crispy cakes. These have a generous splash of soy sauce for seasoning and flour to bind the batter so they fry up perfectly. A quick mayo-sriracha sauce is the perfect, flavor-packed finishing touch.


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk eggs and soy sauce in a large bowl. Add cabbage, kimchi, and scallions; toss to combine. Stir in flour.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium. Working in batches, drop ¾ cup batter for each patty into oil. Cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining oil and cabbage mixture. Serve with sriracha mayo, if desired.
