Recipe by Kaoru
"This is a savory pancake. Make it with plenty of mung bean sprouts! Unlike other bean sprouts, mung sprouts are eaten cooked in Japan. They are economical and nutritious! I created this recipe for my wheat-free diet, but if you like go ahead and use wheat flour for barley flour. It tastes like good old Japan to me!!"

minced fresh ginger root
mung bean sprouts
ground cayenne pepper to taste
Yummy. I needed more water than stated to make a batter, but I was using whole wheat flour (all I had). Squeezing the mung bean sprouts as I dropped them in crumbled many nicely while leaving some whole. I omitted the sesame/veggie oil mixture, instead spraying a nonstick pan lightly with cooking spray and sprinkling a mixture of bonito flakes, kelp and toasted sesame seeds on the top side. I just put some more tamari on top to eat. It was so good!
I gave it 3 stars. These have the potential to be great, but the recipe really needs some help. I added more water too, but the pancakes were too Tamari/ginger intesive w/ little else to offer. Photo looks great, I want THAT recipe.
Thank you Kaoru! This recipe was delicious. I used all purpose flour almost double the mung bean sprouts and 1/2 cup of shredded carrots. It turned out perfect with some cayenne pepper sprinkled on top with tamari for dipping. Very low-calorie too!
I really enjoyed this! It was very different from anything I've had before. I used all-purpose flour because that's all that I had on hand. I thought I was going to need to add more water, but my bean sprouts were still quite wet from when I washed them, so that added enough moisture. I served the pancakes with a little sriracha on the side.
great quick recipe. i might have used too much ginger and soy sauce. definitely gingery, so use less if you're not the biggest fan.
Delicious with dark green cabbage leaves layered in between 2 pancakes.
Delicious pancake! I incorporated the chili powder into the pancake. I used zesty sprouts instead of mung bean sprouts, and whole wheat flour instead of barley flour. I have started my next batch of sprouts to be able to make these again!
I definitely had to add some more water. This is a simple spicy taste of Asia. I loved it.
