Eating a Vegan Oil-Free Kimchi Pancake is a savory, slightly spicy comfort food experience.
My husband, Paul ferments his own kimchi as well as sauerkraut, brussel sprouts, and other vegetables. In fact, it is so good, I can’t buy it at the store anymore because it can’t compare to his.
We frequent a family owned Korean restaurant, called Bibimbab, one of our best kept secrets. This authentic Korean restaurant serves the BEST vegan ethnically unique food I have ever eaten. Although they serve meat, they have a diverse menu full of plant-based options. They will prepare your food without oil, with brown rice, or any way you want it.
Bibimbab serves a kimchi pancake beyond wonderful. We order it as an appetizer every time. I always wanted to try making one at home, but I wanted mine to be completely oil free.
I struggled with how to make this dense pancake without any oil. My Copper Chef Pan worked as well as it has since I got it at Christmas. I was worried, but it didn’t stick at all.
Although you can use any vegan kimchi, my husband’s kimchi is a blessing. Kimchi pancakes have very few ingredients, so it is easy to make. It all depends on your pan.
