Cajun Crab-less Cakes With Spicy Remoulade Sauce Recipe

Dairy FreeVeganVegetarian

These plant based crab cakes are made with simple ingredients, and they’re simply delicious. Each bite delivers a crispy, flaky break thru of flavor.

Heart of palm and artichoke play the role of the crab in this recipe, so keep that in mind when you are dicing them. If you like a chunkier crab cake then dice large chunks, if you want a smoother crab cake then dice small chunks and mash a few with fork.

Chickpea flour and bread crumbs work as the binding agents. Bread crumbs can be either regular or panko, but panko creates a crispier result. If you don’t have either, crumbled up crackers work great too.

Vegan mayonnaise, lemon juice, vegan worcestershire sauce, salt, cajun seasoning, and parsley are all the ingredients necessary for flavoring the vegan crab cakes.

The spicy remoulade sauce is made with ketchup, dijon mustard, lemon, acv, hot sauce, and creole seasoning. If you don’t have creole seasoning you can make your own by mixing salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, thyme, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, and basil. If you don’t want your sauce to be spicy then omit the hot sauce.
