Kimchi Pancake

There’s always a big jar of kimchi sitting at the bottom shelf of our fridge.

That’s because Ben and I love the pungent and fizzy taste of fermented cabbage and eat it with just about anything.

It really goes well with so many dishes! Live whenever I’m in a bind about what to make for dinner, I’ll stir fry veggies with tofu or meat and add chopped kimchi with a little soy sauce. Or if I want to serve a hot bowl of soba noodles with a twist, I top it with kimchi and a drizzle of sesame oil. It’s also great for lazy days because nothing works more beautifully with pristine white rice than kimchi.

As you can see, kimchi is extremely versatile and has a unique flavor profile like no other ingredients out there. It’s also very healthy and that’s good for us since we simply can’t get enough of it!

This kimchi pancake recipe is so easy it only requires five ingredients! Scallions, eggs, pancake flour, salt and kimchi. The red liquid you see in the images is kimchi juice taken straight from the jar.

If you don’t have Korean pancake flour there is no need to worry – you can make this recipe using regular, all-purpose flour too.

The only difference is your pancake won’t have the same stretchy, chewy texture since pancake flour contains xanthan gum. Finding Korean pancake flour is fairly easy since it’s sold in most Asian grocery store (or here on Amazon).

I recommend serving this kimchi pancake fresh out of the pan to fully enjoy its crispy exterior and edges.

But you can also make it ahead of time and give it a quick zap in the microwave before serving. It makes a delicious snack for kids and adults and a great conversation starter if you are hosting a dinner party.

This is one dish everyone seems to love! It’s good on its own, with a little mayo or served with this classic soy-chili sauce.
