Try this: Okonomiyaki

Are you and your kids tired of lunches that all kind of taste the same? Okonomiyaki will help you out of any lunch rut: they’re colourful, tasty, satisfying, and are incredibly fast to make. Fall in love with this Japanese street food!

Okonomiyaki are often compared to savory pancakes, but they might remind you more of hashbrowns. To make okonomiyaki, you’ll need panko, eggs, and sliced cabbage - or, for families in a hurry, pre-shredded cabbage or salad mixes.

Okonomiyaki Recipe

Just combine 1 cup panko, 3 cups greens, and 2 beaten eggs in a large bowl. Meanwhile, heat 2 tsps oil on medium heat in a frying pan. When the oil shimmers, scoop up one ladleful of the mixture and gently drop it into your hot pan. Cook until brown on one side (about 2 minutes) and then flip to cook the other side. When done, transfer to a paper towel for a few seconds to absorb extra oil, then top with green onions, sesame seeds, mayo if desired, and some classic okonomiyaki sauce! While these okonomiyaki are vegetarian, you can top your okonomiyaki with bonito or bacon—here's how to prepare the bacon version.
