horseradish dill tartar sauce

2/3 C vegan mayonnaise

1 tbsp horseradish

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

crabless cakes

2 C drained marinated artichoke hearts, finely chopped

2 tbsp liquid from marinated artichokes

1/4 C finely chopped shallot

1/2 C finely chopped celery

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 C chickpea flour

2 tsp coconut sugar or brown sugar

1 tsp Old Bay seasoning

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp sea salt


1/4 C chickpea flour

1 1/4 C multigrain bread crumbs

1/2 C unsweetened nondairy milk

1 1/2 C vegetable oil, for frying


1In a small mixing bowl, stir together all the ingredients for the tartar sauce until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve the crab cakes.

2Drain the marinated artichokes, reserving 2 tablespoons of the liquid to use in the mix. Finely chop the artichoke hearts and add to a large mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients for the crab cakes. Combine well with a fork.

3Heat 1 1/2 cups of vegetable oil in a large cast iron skillet to 350°F – 360°F.

4Set up a dredging station. Add chickpea flour to a wide shallow dish, use another shallow dish for the breadcrumbs, and a bowl for the nondairy milk.

5Take 1/4 cup of the crabless cake mixture and form a round thick patty with your hands. Place the cake in the chickpea flour and coat all sides evenly. Quickly submerge in nondairy milk and remove it from the liquid, then place in breadcrumbs. Using your hands, cover the crabless cake in breadcrumbs getting all sides well coated then lightly shake off any excess. Batter 2 to 3 at a time right before frying.

6Delicately place 2 to 3 cakes in hot oil at once, depending on the size of your pan. Fry for about 4 minutes until golden brown, flipping half way through.

7Remove the cakes from the frying pan and place onto a plate covered with paper towel to absorb any excess oil.

8Serve immediately with horseradish dill tartar sauce. Leftovers can be heated over medium heat in a pan that’s lightly coated with vegetable oil.
