Soapstone Griddle Indoor Electric Cooktop Vegetarian Crab Cakes or Veggie Burger


This is a vegan recipe I developed as an alternative to Crab Cakes! If you are vegetarian you can substitute an egg for the flax seed meal/water mixture in the main recipe and use mayonnaise instead of a non-dairy/egg free replacement like Vegenaise (my personal favorite) as a base for the Tartar Sauce.


2 1/2 cups grated daikon radish

1 teaspoon salt

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 fresh jalapeno pepper, deseeded + minced

1/2 red onion, minced

½ sweet red pepper, minced

½ bunch parsley, finely chopped

3 Tablespoons flax seed meal mixed with 1/3 cup water, let sit for 10 minutes

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 teaspoons dulce flakes

1 teaspoon paprika

Coconut oil for grilling


Place the daikon radish in a large bowl with the salt and cover with water. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Drain the daikon radish and stir in garlic, jalapeno, onion, sweet pepper, parsley, flax seed mixture, breadcrumbs, pepper, dulce flakes and paprika. Mix well. Form into 8 small round patties.


Coat flat griddle with oil and preheat over medium heat. Grill patties until firm and nicely brown, 3-5 min per side. Serve with tartar sauce as a condiment. Some sides that go well with this are corn-on-the-cob (yummy with salt, pepper + fresh squeezed lime juice) and cole slaw!


Tartar Sauce


1 cup Vegenaise

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

¼ cup onion, minced

¼ cup capers OR 1 Tablespoon minced spicy dill pickles


Put ingredients into a jar with tight fitting lid and shake until well mixed.
