    Ms*Bindy's Note:

    This recipe comes from Fatfree Vegan Kitchen. I was looking for recipes to use Okara after I received my soymilk maker and this is one that I found. Use a food processor to chop of the vegetables quickly. I've also let the mixture rest overnight with no problems. Prep time includes the 10 minutes to rest the mixture. Now, you won't mistake these patties for real Maryland Crab Cakes by any means. But, if you're looking for something a little different, you may find these are a good option.

      Finally a use for okara other then compost! I've tried using it to make hummus, veggie burgers and even as vegan ricotta cheese; all with no luck. I'll be making this again. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you for a very nice recipe. I never really had crab cakes as an omnivore so I have nothing to compare them to, but I wanted to give this a try since I used to LOVE crab legs! These were a nice change to the traditional veggie pattie. I used the garlic and herb Old Bay seasoning and had it with homemade tartar sauce and cocktail sauce. Thanks for posting! It's always nice to find interesting new ways to make vegetarian versions of our old favorites...
