Crab Cakes

Vegan Bay "Crab" Cakes
Recipe by Cherie Soria (as printed in Purely Delicious magazine)

Serves 6 (Yields twelve 1/4 cup cakes)

1/2 C. dried porcini mushrooms, soaked for 1 hr, drained and diced
1 1/2 C. zucchini, spiralized
1 1/2 C. macadamia nuts, ground
1/4 C. onion, finely minced
1/4 C. celery, finely minced
2 Tbls. nutritional yeast
2 Tbls. lemon juice
2 Tbls. red bell pepper, very finely diced
2 tsp. kelp powder
2 tsp. ground golden flax seeds
1 Tbls. ground psyllium seed
1 tsp. garlic, pureed
1 tsp. red jalapeno, minced (or substitue cayenne pepper to taste)
1 tsp. Himalayan crystal salt

1. Using a pair of kitchen shears, cut the spiralized zucchni into pieces about one inch in length. (A spiral slicer and a chef's knife are perfect for this task.)
2. Combine the zucchini and all remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add a few drops of water, if needed, to form a firm dough.
3. Using a 1/4 C. measure, create small cakes, about one inch deep.
4. Place the cakes on a nonstick dehydrator sheet and place in dehydrator at 120 degrees for 1 hour; then turn over to dehydrate the other side for another 1-2 hours. (This temperature will not be too hot to destroy the nutrients and enzymes, since the dough has enough water to stay cool during this time.)
5. Serve with a generous serving of Cocktail Sauce and/or Creamy Dill Sauce.

Creamy Dill (Tartar) Sauce

1/4 C. cashews, soaked in water 4 hours
1 1/2 Tbls. lemon juice
2-3 Tbls. water, as needed
1/4 C. dill weed, minced
2 1/2 Tbls. capers (not typically a raw food)
2 Tbls. celery, minced
1 Tbls. horseradish
1 Tbls. red onion, minced
1/2 tsp. salt

1. Place cashews with lemon juice and enough water to form a thick, smooth cream.
2. Add remaining ingredients and pulse.
Mixture should have a slightly chunky texture. Serve over Crab Cakes.

Actually, Tweety, even though it has lots of ingredients, it looks fairly simple to make.
I haven't made it yet, but I'm planning to make it tomorrow if I get my gardens all ready for winter and still have time to do some fun things in the kitchen!

okay Coonlie. If you do not mind please do share what you think of it because I am truly curious why crab cake? Was the original recipe made out of crabs? I never heard of this

Have a good time making this Crab Cake Coonlie

Aisah! You could do this! It is deceptively easy
I just had to buy porcini's, a red pepper, kelp powder, zucchini and pysillium.
The only fancy equipment you need is a spiralizer
Then just some soaking, mincing, measuring, and such brief dehydration you could probably even do that in an oven!
Soooo worth it in MHO!!

Coolie, let us know how it goes!

I really liked the texture because they are dry on the outside but moist on the inside and the veggies give the texture a nice "small" crunch, just like if they had been fried in a pan
