Let's make something healthy, delicious, and a little salty today. It's a delicious Korean side dish, meant to be eaten with rice and other side dishes.
Have you ever heard of jangtteok (장떡)? They're pancakes seasoned with Korean jang like ganjang (soy sauce), doenjang (soybean paste), or gochujang (hot pepper paste). They make great side dishes for rice and are a popular choice in Korean lunchboxes. I use kale in this recipe but you can use chopped Asian chives, perilla leaves, or green chili peppers. And my version is vegetarian, but you could also add some chopped seafood like shrimp, squid, or clams.
It's a very versatile Korean dish, and deliciously savory, earthy, hot, and crispy! If you make this jangtteok, or experiment on your own, be sure to send me a photo and let me know about it! I'd love to see your jangtteok!
