2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the edamame and the flax “egg”

  • Rinse the edamame under warm water.

In a small bowl, stir together the flaxseed meal and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] water. Let the flax “egg” stand while you prepare the scallions. 


Prep and cook the scallions

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Coarsely chop enough green parts to measure 1 tablespoon [2 TBL]; set aside for the dipping sauce.  

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the 2-inch scallion pieces and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the scallions to a paper-towel-lined plate; set aside for the salad. Do not clean the pan. While the scallions are cooking, prepare the pancake batter.


Make the pancake batter; cook the pancakes

  • Coarsely chop the kimchi. 

In a large bowl, stir together the Asian savory pancake blend, flax “egg,” and ¾ cup [1½ cups] cold water. Add the edamame and kimchi and stir until blended. Season with salt and pepper.

In the same pan used for the scallions, warm the reserved oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, pour in the batter to form 4- to 5-inch-wide pancakes. Cook, turning once, until crisp and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. While the pancakes are cooking, prepare the salad and the dipping sauce.


Make the green mango–bok choy salad

  • Trim the root ends from the bok choy; thinly slice the bok choy crosswise.
  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel. Cut the mango into matchsticks. Alternatively, using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the flesh, working around the pit. 
  • Juice the lemon. [Juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon for another use.]
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.

In a large bowl, toss together the bok choy, mango, cilantro, scallion pieces, 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Finish the dipping sauce

In a small bowl, stir together the Asian dipping sauce base and green parts of the scallions.


Transfer the pancakes and salad to individual plates and serve the dipping sauce on the side.
