Vegan Crab Cakes

Also what I like to call, Grub Cakes. This is a vegan version of the ever so popular crab cakes. Served with the most delicious remoulade sauce.


1/2 cup cracker crumbs

1-14oz can of hearts of palm

½ sweet onion, chopped

1/3 cup chopped bell pepper (I used yellow and orange)

3 teaspoons of creole seasoning or Old Bay Seasoning

1 tbsp of Nutritional Yeast

1 tsp of white or red wine vinegar

1/4 cup of vegan egg

2 green onions, chopped, use green and white part

2 teaspoons garlic salt

2 tablespoons FYH Vegenaise

½ cup flour, seasoned with a little salt and pepper

Roughly ¼ cup of oil for frying

Olive Oil

Chopped greens of choice, we used pea shoots

Remoulade Sauce (Recipe below)

Lemon slices


Using a knife or food processor chop up your hearts of palm

Hearts of palm should be shreds and look flaky, like crab meat

Heat a little olive oil in a medium pan

Add in your onion and bell pepper

Sauté for roughly 5 minutes

Onion should be opaque, drain liquid from onions and peppers

Let mix cool

In a mixing bowl add hearts of palm, sautéed onion pepper mix, bread crumbs, creole seasoning, green onions, vegan mayo, nutritional yeast, vinegar, garlic salt, vegan egg

Mix well

Form the batter into 1 1/2 inch balls, roll into flour and form into patties

Let the patties chill in freezer 10 minutes before frying.

Heat your frying oil over medium high heat

Once oil is hot add in your patties, in batches

Let them fry on each side for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crispy

Serve with remoulade sauce, lemon slices, and sprinkle with greens

Serve and Enjoy!
