Japanese Pizza, Toddler Style

Our last CSA bag of the regular season was a few weeks ago. In it was the largest head of bok choy I have ever seen. I briefly contemplated stir fry for dinner but for some reason I ditched that idea. Then I remembered a fabulous Japanese Pizza recipe we found last summer. It is tasty and versatile.
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1 cup chopped vegetable
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • pinch of salt
Place all ingredients except eggs into a food processor. Get someone who loves to push buttons to operate the food processor. Add eggs and pulse to mix. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry 1/4 cup amounts until brown and flip to cook other side. Keep warm in the oven or place on a plate to cool. Keeps well in the fridge or freezer. Serve with your choice of sauce. I like a tarter sauce or cole slaw dressing.

Mom's Task's:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Chop vegetables
  3. Assist girls with processor
  4. Fry pizzas
Audrey and Maurene's Tasks:
  1. Crack egg
  2. Operate food processor
The girls could have helped with gathering the ingredients but they were too busy coloring. We are starting to work on activities that involve them doing more of the prep work. They are starting to recognize the different utensils we use and can gather them while I read a list of supplies. It is still a work in progress but we are enjoying the ride.

Next time you have a hearty green and a flavorful vegetable to use up, try this recipe. It is yummy. And feel free to experiment with different choices.

Mo is very serious about her eggs.

Having fun while the processor runs.
