Hearts of Palm Chickpea “Crab Cakes” + Creole Remoulade Slaw

Straight to Recipe

On my recent visit to New Orleans I had some delicious traditional crab cakes. They were served with fresh lemon and hot sauce. I of course started thinking up ways to make these plant based back in the Divine Life Kitchen. I also knew I wanted to whip up a remuolaude that used plant based ingredients so I could dip the “crab cakes” and make up a slaw with the remuoluade.
I used hearts of palm and chickpeas with a generous dash of dulce flakes and creole seasining to create this plant based “crab cake” at home.

I made up several for each person having dinner and then froze the remaining for a quick dinner another day. Enjoy and let me know how you get Creative in the kitchen with your ingredients when you make up this seafood like feast.

Next time I make them I will also make up some creole seasoned potato fries! I know those would taste great dipped in the remoulaude!
