Kelp noodles with sprouts recipe

To prepare this recipe, you need to start by removing the kelp noodles from the packaging. Then, proceed to soak them in water.

Allow them to sit for a while as you prepare your ingredients and blend your sauce. This procedure (making the sauce) assists in separating your noodles.

It’s the sauce that will make this recipe come together. Make sure to use good quality ingredients!

My favorite fish sauce is the Red Boat fish sauce because of its rich flavor and aroma. The sriracha adds just a little kick to the dish!

You can garnish your dish with cilantro, sesame seeds, green onion, and peanuts. When you use the correct ratios, you’ll love this recipe!

In the most basic and traditional settings, okonomiyaki is often prepared with bacon (see this authentic recipe here).

This is due to its subtle, sweet, salty taste and easy accessibility.

But since we are making a vegan recipe, we will be substituting it with smoked tofu. You can also go for vegan bacon for its unique flavor if you don’t have it for some reason, 

Also, since our recipe will be gluten-free, it’s essential to use gluten-free all-purpose flour. We’ll add just a little sriracha to spice things up.

Equipment

  • Blender/ Food Processor
  • Cooking pot
  • Sauce pan (for the optional sauce)

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tsp sriracha

Sriracha sauce (optional or you could buy it, but this is healthier)

  • 3 Fresh red Fresno or jalapeno peppers seeded, stemmed, and chopped (roughly)
  • 8 cloves garlic smashed and peeled
  • cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt

Instructions
 

Start by preparing your sriracha sauce (you can skip this if you don't want to add it or if you're going to buy a bottle)

  • Preparing the sauce: This preparation requires around 20 minutes and will make around 2¼ cups. This sauce is not just paleo-friendly, but it's also very fast. You can ferment it to boost the umami in the sauce. If you don’t have enough time for the sauce to ferment, you can add umami, which can be in the form of fish sauce or tomato paste.
  • Start by preparing your peppers. Use gloves while handling the peppers to help you not burn your eyes and hands. If you don’t want the sauce to be extremely hot, you can remove the seeds and some of the ribs from the peppers. Keeping the seeds and the ribs will make the sauce hotter. You can roughly chop the whole peppers before or after you remove the seed; it doesn't have to be small rings because we're going to blend the ingredients together.
  • Now put all of the ingredients for the sauce into a blender or food processor. A rectangular food processor can also work. However, if you use this kind of food processor, make sure that you cut your garlic and peppers into smaller pieces and then put everything together. Failing to do so may make the sauce end up on the chunky side and that's not what you want.

  • Continue blending until you achieve a smooth paste. Now pour the puree into a saucepan and then boil it over high heat. Once the puree starts to boil, reduce the heat, and then allow it to simmer for around 5 – 10 minutes. Make sure that you stir occasionally. Cooking the sauce allows you to deepen and concentrate the flavors, and reduce the sharpness of the garlic.
  • Once the foam reduces, your sauce will have a bright red color. In addition, you shouldn't be able to detect the smell of raw vegetables. Taste your sauce to check the seasoning, and adjust if necessary.
  • This sriracha sauce can last for up to 1 week, but it should be refrigerated. You can also freeze your sauce if you want to use it for a longer period (for up to 2 – 3 months).
  • You can also add sriracha to your dishes straight out of the bottle.
