Raw Un-Fish Cakes

Are you like many folks who love seafood? I often hear people talk about how they eat vegan except for occasional fish or seafood. If you have a hard time giving up the seafood (or even if you don’t) here is a vegan and living foods recipe for you. Think of it like a raw crab cake or salmon cake. It gets its seafood flavor from the seaweed.


This recipe also makes use of all of that almond pulp that might go to waste after you make your almond milk. Combined with grated carrots and chopped celery, red bell pepper and fresh herbs it creates a beautiful and delicious un-fish cake that makes a great appetizer or main dish. The patties are coated in ground flaxseed as the “breading.”

Make a sauce by mixing horseradish with some raw or vegan mayo.

I think this would also work with Cajun seasoning or other seasoning combinations.
