Egg Foo Young-ish
Health Highlights
My Egg Foo Young-ish recipe is fantastic portable meal can be eaten with your hands, and are totally adaptable to whatever fillings you have in the kitchen


6 large egg Egg
1/4 cup Coconut flour
1 tsp Fish sauce (or kosher salt; to taste)
1/2 tsp Apple cider vinegar
1 cup Ham (diced; or cooked meat of choice)
284 gm Spinach (frozen; thawed and squeezed dry)
2 green onion (stem) Green onion (sliced)
1 tbsp Cilantro (coriander) (minced fresh)
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 dash Black pepper (freshly ground)
1 tbsp Coconut oil (or ghee; for frying)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut flour, fish sauce, and apple cider vinegar until smooth.
  2. Mix in the ham, spinach, scallions, cilantro, and baking soda, and some freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Melt a tablespoon of ghee in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Use a large disher (3-tablespoon size) to plop the batter in the pan, and flatten the pancake to ½-inch thick with the back of a spoon. I can comfortably fit 3 pancakes in my 12-inch skillet at a time – don’t overcrowd them!
  4. Fry without disturbing the patties for 2 minutes before flipping the pancakes over and cooking it on the other side for about 1-2 minutes more. The pancakes  are cooked through when the centers bounce back when you press down on them with your finger.
  5. Repeat until you’re out of batter. As each pancake finishes cooking, transfer it to a wire rack to cool. Then, plate ’em up and serve!
  6. I like these pancakes plain, but they’re also wonderful topped with sriracha, guacamole, Spicy Pineapple Salsa, or Mango Avocado Salsa.
