Hearts Of Palm Cakes with Caper Aioli are a fun veggie packed spin on a crab cake. This recipe is vegan, gluten, free and full of flavor!
10 oz vegan mayonnaise
1 lemon zested and 1/2 juiced
2 tablespoons Reese Capers, ( chopped)
1 tablespoon minced dill
1 clove garlic, ( minced)
16 oz Reese Hearts of Palm, ( drained and chopped into 1/4 inch pieces)
0.25 cup minced shallots
0.25 cup minced celery
2 teaspoons agave
0.75 cup oat flour
1.5 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
0.75 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
0.75 cup unsweetened almond milk ((or other non dairy milk))
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
a few dashes of hot sauce
1.5 cups gluten-free bread crumbs
halved grape tomatoes
In a small bowl, whisk together all of the aioli ingredients. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with coconut oil spray.
In a bowl, stir together the hearts of palm, artichokes, shallots, celery, and agave. In another bowl, whisk together the oat flour, Old Bay and salt. Add the flour mixture into the hearts of palm and stir well to combine. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
For the breading station, whisk together the oat flour, Old Bay, and a pinch of salt and pepper into one bowl. In another bowl, whisk the almond milk, Dijon mustard, a few dashes of hot sauce and a pinch of salt and pepper together. In a third bowl, add the breadcrumbs.
Take 2 tablespoons of the crab cake mixture and form it into a patty. Place it into the oat flour and coat all sides evenly. Submerge it into the almond milk and immediately remove it. Let any excess liquid drip off and then add it to the breadcrumb bowl. Coat with the breadcrumbs, using your hands to cover all sides evenly. Place on the baking tray and repeat with the remaining batter.
Bake the crab cakes for 25 minutes, flip them over and bake for another 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes to fully set up. Serve with aioli and toppings, if desired.
