Meatless Monday with Vegan Crab Cakes

Welcome to the Miratel blog for another Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. The Meatless Monday pledge aims to reduce meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve personal and planetary health. Miratel has taken the pledge to support this great initiative, which we have included as part of our CSR business strategies to spread awareness of the impact of food choices on our environment.

Crab cakes bring about thoughts of water, sun, and warm breezes – not veganism. They are a favourite of many and just because you want to make a vegan meal doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this favorite dish even in the beginning of Spring. Today’s recipe, in case you hadn’t guessed, is for vegan crab cakes. This great recipe (and idea) comes from the Happy Herbivore, an amazing resource for vegan recipes. Do yourself a favour and checkout it out.


  • 10 tbsp fat-free vegan mayo

  • 10 ounces extra-firm tofu
  • 3 whole celery ribs
  • 1 whole onion, small
  • 1¼ cups oyster mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 3 whole whole wheat bread slices
  • 1 tsp kelp
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper and set aside. Place tofu in food processor and pulse until coarsely crumbled. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Process celery, onion, mushrooms and bread as you did the tofu. Add spices and mayo, stirring to thoroughly combine. Scoop mixture with a 1/2 cup measuring cup, packing it in tightly to form a cake. Turn out on cookie sheet and bake 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. Chef’s Note: I like to serve these cakes with the Thousand Island Dressing from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, using fat-free vegan mayo and adding a generous amount of Old Bay Seasoning and hot sauce.

This vegan crab cake recipe will yield 7 crab cakes and best of all they are only 53 calories each!

This recipe is great for gatherings at any time of the year to serve as an appetizer, a vegan buffet option or a main course. For appetizer you would want to make the cakes smaller, probably half or a third of the size.

To complete your vegan crab cake meal, serve with a hearty salad perhaps with a lemon vinaigrette and the potato of your choice for a light yet filling meal.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to visit the Meatless Monday website and join us in taking the pledge today. Spread the word at home and at work and promote CSR business initiatives to make your green call centre, office, factory, shop, restaurant or salon even greener.
