PALMITO KRABBY CAKES

INGREDIENTS

-3 ½ cups or 3 cans hearts of palm, rinsed, drained, patted dry and shredded

-1 1/2 cups chickpeas, rinsed and well- drained

-3 cloves garlic, minced & roasted (or 2 tsp garlic powder)

-3/4 cup of yellow onions, finely diced

-3/4 cup red or yellow bell pepper, finely diced

-1/3 cup vegan mayo

-2 tbsp stone ground or dijon mustard

-2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped

-1/4 cup ground flaxseed

-2 cups panko bread crumbs or GF crackers  

-1 tsp white or black pepper

-2 1/2 heaping TBSP old bay seasoning

-2 tsp dulse granules or nori flakes

-Grapeseed oil (optional) 

-Zest of one lemon (optional) 

 

METHOD

Preheat oven to 425°F and line your baking pan with parchment and set aside.

 

CUT hearts of palm in half, pat dry, place in food processor and pulse no more than 3 cycles of 3-4 second intervals (texture of hearts of palm should be like crab) then add to large bowl.

 

ADD chickpeas to food processor and pulse no more than 3 cycles of 2-3 second intervals (texture of chickpeas should be broken up but not mushy), add to large bowl and gently combine with hearts of palm and set aside.

 

ADD a few tablespoons of water (or grapeseed oil) to a small pan over medium heat. Once pan is warm add onions, bell peppers, cover one minute (this will help generate steam to help render down your veggies)

 

REMOVE lid, stir/toss, replace lid for another minute or until onions are slightly translucent and/or softened

 

PLACE cooked veggies on a plate, set aside in fridge for or freezer to bring to room temp more quickly

 

ADD and gently combine cooled onion mixture, flaxseed and dulse granules to the hearts of palm mixture and allow time for the flaxseed to bloom (open up, expand-about 15 minutes)

 

ADD all remaining spices and ingredients, except dill and lemon zest, gently combine

 

CHECK consistency, which should be slightly firm, like a crab mixture would be. If it’s too loose, add more breadcrumbs, chickpeas or flaxseed (an additional flaxseed selection will effect final product appearance)

 

TASTE the way it tastes now will carry forward 

 

ADD fresh herb, lemon zest and fold and stir to combine

 

FORM into patties and place in fridge at least 30 minutes then remove from fridge and set aside to room temp.

BAKE 

place patties on parchment lined baking sheet in 425°F pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes, remove, allow to cool and enjoy!
