These crab cake appetizers from Gardein provide a satisfying way for non-meat eaters and omnivores alike to enjoy the comforts of a familiar seafood dish.

Gardein's Mini Crispy Crabless Cakes are made with a breading that wraps around an imitation meat filling made of recognizable plant-based ingredients like red bell peppers, green onions and roasted garlic puree. The Mini Crabless Cakes are sold frozen and only take minutes to prepare once removed from the freezer, making them an extremely quick and easy appetizer to make. To further enhance the dish, Gardein also provides recipes for sauce that may be used as flavorful embellishments.

There are now plenty of convincing vegan versions of pork, beef and chicken on the market, but there are fewer items that have been successfully recreated from the seafood category. However, these Mini Crabless Cakes join Gardein's Golden Fishless Filets, further expanding the fishless options available.
