One of the things I love most about TikTok is that they start to push accounts to your “for you” page based upon what you post and like. It’s taken a while, but I am finally seeing a ton of foodie accounts and doggies. A few weeks ago, I can across The Korean Vegan. Although, I do not post a lot of vegetarian or vegan recipes, this recipe for Rainbow Jeon caught my attention. Totally in love with the way Joanne, not only prepares and presents her dishes, but the stories that are told along the way. So, I decided to recreate this recipe, with just a few minor changes. Hope you enjoy this Vegetarian Jeon (Pancake). All credit and inspiration goes to Joanne!

To be clear, this Vegetarian Jeon (Pancake) will not be a “typical” pancake. Meaning, there really is no batter. However, you will be amazed at how well the pancake stays together. Additionally, for those of you that follow the keto diet, you CAN eat this!
HOW TO MAKE A VEGETARIAN JEON (PANCAKE)
It’s super important to cut the vegetables as thin as you can. Use a mandolin, or hand-cut. Thankfully, I was able to achieve this easily using a knife. Place all of the vegetables into a bowl. Season with kosher salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Honestly, feel free to add whatever seasoning blend you wish. In my opinion, the combination of these spices mixed with the flavor of the coconut, worked beautifully. Add in the coconut flour, coconut milk and soy sauce. If you have an aversion to soy, substitute with liquid coconut aminos. I do this quite often.
Combine well. You will notice the texture is not like your typical pancake. This is what you want. Heat oil to medium-high in a non-stick pan. Add the mixture. Flatten to fit the pan. Since this is not a “real” pancake, you need to allow the bottom to set up in order to flip without it falling apart. Brown nicely on the bottom.
To flip, I used a little trick and placed a wooden cutting board on top of the pan. Invert the pan onto the board, then slide the pancake back into the pan (browned side up). Top with sesame seeds. Allow the bottom to brown. You may have to flip a few times to get the perfect crust, and to ensure the middle is cooked through.
TO SERVE THE VEGETARIAN JEON (PANCAKE)
Slide the pancake onto a flat surface or wooden board. Cut into squares. Garnish with a touch more sesame seeds. ENJOY! This Vegetarian Jeon (Pancake). Serve as a side dish, or meal. There is really no need for a dipping sauce.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
