Vegetable Pancake (Yachaejeon: 야채전)

By | February 19, 2020

(mid-tempo lighthearted music) – Hi, everybody, spring has come. (birds chirp) I love this kind of really warm weather. I love it outside, really, really feel really refreshing. Today’s recipe is yachaejeon,
vegetable pancake. (pancake sizzles) To celebrate this springtime, I wanna flip my pancake, right? (laughs) Are you in the kitchen right now? These guys are from my
refrigerator, just I found, and this is a leek. If you don’t have leek, you don’t have to use this. And this is green onion. Green onion definitely
you guys have to use because make it really tasty. And this is sweet potato or carrot, onion, and zucchini, and green
chili pepper or jalapeno. And this is mushroom, just you can use shiitake mushroom, or any white mushroom, and this is portobello
mushroom, only one (laughs). With any vegetables you can make a nice, delicious vegetable pancake, yachaejeon. Non-stick skillet, this is
my 12-inch non-stick skillet. I always hide this somewhere. So let’s start. So I will use just four green onions, cut around one inch size. This amount of leek, just slice. And zucchini,
I will use around this amount. Cut into matchsticks. This is jalapeno, slice thinly. If you can’t eat spicy food, just skip it. Let’s measure, I need like 2½ cups, so this is my cup. This is around one cup. And let’s add onion. Slice this. Let’s see. Another one cup, so total two cups, and we need half cup. So I use this sweet potato. When it’s cooked with other vegetables it’s really, really good, tasty. I’m using my knife because
no time to find my peeler. So this amount. I think this is, yeah. So let’s see, half cup, so 2½ cups all vegetable mix. So all leftover vegetables
I’ll put in my plastic bag, and keep in the refrigerator so that I can make more anytime, one more, two more, you
know, I can make this. My mushroom is lonely because I didn’t take
care of this guy (laughs). Okay, and I’m just going to
cut it, just slice thinly. I will use 3/4 cup
flour, all purpose flour, 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup. You guys know that 1/2 cup
plus 1/4 cup equal 3/4 cup. And salt 1/2 teaspoon, 3/4 cup water, so 1/2 cup, and mix. As you see lots of vegetables, less flour, so we eat lots of vegetables. Let’s heat the skillet
over medium high heat, vegetable oil about two tablespoon. I’m using a generous
amount of vegetable oil, now I use two tablespoons,
later one more tablespoon because it has to be
really crunchy outside. So if you use just less oil, it’s not going to be crunchy. That’s a kind of tip. I’ll put this all. (pancake sizzles) Just spread this evenly
thin, thin pancake. And I will turn down the heat to medium. And then, I will just add mushroom. Okay, so now, just only one minute later, I can see the bottom is just
moving around like this. I like to make some of my
sauce, dipping sauce. Soy sauce about one tablespoon, and vinegar around two teaspoons, hot pepper flakes, this is optional, you don’t have to use if you don’t have, and sesame seeds. Mix it. That’s it, this is my dipping sauce. Couple of minutes I cook this. You can see on the
bottom, bottom side is a little, sound, you can hear that, eh? So you can use your spatula, just turn, or just like me, flip. Let’s flip, why? To celebrate spring. And then I’m going to turn up the heat, and one more tablespoon vegetable oil. Just lift one edge and tilt, so this oil is going to the center. It has to be really crunchy. I’m gong to cook around
three minutes from now, but I’m not going to leave here. I will keep an eye on this because I need to take
responsibility, isn’t it? (mid-tempo playful music) Hey, look at that, isn’t it pretty? This mushroom is really, really pretty. It look like it’s inlaid. Turn off. (pancake sizzles) Here you go. So sauce. Mmm, so good, really delicious. Let me taste one more. Mmm. Mmm, (giggles) crunchy outside, inside is kind of really soft. And all this vegetable’s taste
is all different texture. Kimchi, mmm. Little by little,
already 1/3 is gone. And also this kimchi is well fermented, and go well really, really together. In Korea, when we make this yachaejeon, we serve this as snack. But sometimes just like
me, I eat as lunch. Usually, like rainy days,
especially on the weekend, all family are at home, and mom is making this kind of pancake. And when she makes this
pancake in the kitchen, that smells like a kind of
oily smell and vegetable, some nice kind of smells,
it all gives off. And make all the family
members just excited. You guys can make this on
a rainy day and make this, and then, “Oh, today, I
like to make my house,” “so really mood very nice, festive,” “so I make this just like Koreans.” You can say that (laughs). Today we made yachaejeon,
vegetable pancake. Enjoy my recipe. See you next time, bye! (cheerful guitar music)

  17. BeeHead Post author

    Looks great. If I make it I will sub in a little lentil or pea flower to up the protein. And or maybe add some crumbled tofu for same reason. Also, Maybe throw in some nutritional yeast for some B12 vitamin.

    Would you like help translating some of your recipes into portuguese?

    Мне очень понравился этот овощной блин, представляю: как это вкусно, обязательно приготовлю. Я делаю такой из капусты. Просто капуста мелко резаная, перемять посильнее с солью и добавить муку немного воды и 1 яйцо- оторваться невозможно. Тоже очень вкусно!

    Если можно , сделайте Тофу. Жду видео.
