Cabbage-Carrot-Kale Pancakes

Recipe courtesy of Smitten Kitchen. Adapted for Intervale Food Hub Members

 

INGREDIENTS

Pancakes
1/2 small head cabbage, very thinly sliced (1 pound or 5 to 6 cups shreds) which will be easiest on a mandoline if you have one
4 medium carrots, peeled into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
5 lacinato kale leaves, ribs removed, leaves cut into thin ribbons
4 scallions, thinly sliced on an angle (Intervale Food Hub Note: thinly sliced onions will be a great substitute if you do not have scallions!)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
6 large eggs, lightly beaten
Canola, safflower or peanut oil for frying

Tangy Sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (note: this is not vegetarian)
1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon rice cooking wine or sake
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey (use 2 if you like a sweeter sauce)
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Make the pancakes: Toss cabbage, carrot, kale, scallions and salt together in a large bowl. Toss mixture with flour so it coats all of the vegetables. Stir in the eggs. Heat a large heavy skillet on medium-high heat. Coat the bottom with oil and heat that too.

To make a large pancake, add 1/4 of the vegetable mixture to the skillet, pressing it out into a 1/2- to 3/4-inch pancake. Gently press the pancake down flat. Cook until the edges beging to brown, about 3 minutes. 30 seconds to 1 minute later, flip the pancake with a large spatula. (If this is terrifying, you can first slide the pancake onto a plate, and, using potholders, reverse it back into the hot skillet.) Cook on the other side until the edges brown, and then again up to a minute more (you can peek to make sure the color is right underneath).

To make small pancakes, you can use tongs but I seriously find using my fingers and grabbing little piles, letting a little batter drip back into the bowl, and depositing them in piles on the skillet easier, to form 3 to 4 pancakes. Press down gently with a spatula to they flatten slightly, but no need to spread them much. Cook for 3 minutes, or until the edges brown. Flip the pancakes and cook them again until brown underneath.

Regardless of pancake size, you can keep them warm on a tray in the oven at 200 to 250 degrees until needed.

If desired, make okonomiyaki sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and let simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, until smooth and thick.

Serve pancakes with sauce and any of the other fixings listed above, from Japanese mayo to scallions and toasted sesame seeds.

Do ahead: Extra pancakes will keep in the fridge for a couple days, or can be spread on a tray in the freezer until frozen, then combined in a freezer bag to be stored until needed. Reheat on a baking sheet in a hot oven until crisp again.

Apple Cider-Braised Cabbage

Published by Tom Colicchio in foodandwine.com on February 2015

Star chef Tom Colicchio uses both apple cider and apple cider vinegar to braise cabbage wedges so they're fruity and tangy. This recipe is super-versatile: You can make it with red cabbage instead of green and serve it with a huge array of proteins, from seared scallops or fish to roast pork or chicken.


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • One 1 1/2-pound head of green cabbage, cut through the core into 6 wedges
  • 1/2 cup chopped bacon (2 ounces)
  • 1 medium onion, halved through the core and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pepper


HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  1. In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the cabbage wedges cut side down and cook over moderate heat, turning once, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the bacon to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until rendered but not crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and a generous pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and just starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and simmer over moderately high heat until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the cider and bring to a boil. Nestle the cabbage wedges in the skillet, cover and braise over moderately low heat, turning once, until tender, about 20 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or spatula, transfer the cabbage to a platter and tent with foil.
  3. Boil the sauce over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and swirl in the butter. Season the sauce with salt and pepper; spoon over the braised cabbage and serve.


MAKE AHEAD
The cabbage can be prepared through Step 2 and refrigerated overnight in the braising liquid. Let return to room temperature before finishing.


SERVE WITH
Seared scallops or roast fish.

How to Peel Celery Root

Published by Emily Han in thekitchn.com on February 2010

We're always interested in learning How To Peel Things, and when Kitchn reader Niamh recently asked about celery root, we were inspired to try a few different techniques. Knobby and often hairy, celery root (also known as celeriac) may seem daunting to peel but it's actually quite simple. Here's the best technique we found:

Celery root's skin is too tough and bumpy to peel with a vegetable peeler. We had the best results using a sharp chef's knife, although if the root is small, a paring knife will work. The only other thing you need is a cutting board.

  • Place the celery root on its side and cut off the top and bottom. (If the root came with greens attached, you can save them for stock.)
  • Stand the root upright. It should be stable.
  • Cut the remaining peel off in vertical strips from top to bottom, following the shape of the root.
  • Continue cutting until you have removed all of the skin.
  • You may now rinse the celery root and chop it into cubes, matchsticks, or whatever your recipe calls for. The exposed flesh will turn brown quickly, so if you wish to retain the white color, rub it with a cut lemon or have a bowl of water mixed with a tablespoon of lemon juice to submerge the pieces in as you cut them.
