Vegan Crab Cakes

Healthy + Plant-Based + Flavorful

IMG_9763.jpg

So, I had the opportunity to create a mock recipe of the original crab cake.  Disclaimer, it's definitely not the Maryland Crab Cake - for various reasons. But, it is a great and healthier alternative! These patties have a generous amount of protein due to the chickpeas. And, the heart of palms and artichokes give it so much of the crab-meat texture. In addition to the nori sheets, which provide the sea-like taste. It's filled with all of the ingredients you can pronounce. This is a true plant-based meal. I hope you enjoy!
