Vegan Mofo Day #9: Tofu "Crab" Cakes!

On this momentous 9th day of Vegan MoFo, I made my favorite meal: Vegan Tofu "Crab" Cakes! I am serious, these are strangely good! Perhaps it can be attributed to the Vegan Remoulade (aka tartar sauce) on top which is made from Vegenaise, my true love. Who knows! I wish I could emphasize this point more, but I just don't know how: these "crab" cakes could end the world with their deliciousness. I won't waste space to re-post the recipe, but here it is from a post I made a few months ago:Tofu Crab Cakes
I highly recommend serving these with some dirty rice (basically, brown rice with some Cajun spices and hot sauce) and my Crunchy Coleslaw, like I did! Here's my coleslaw recipe...I think you'll like it, too!
Crunchy Coleslaw (serves 6-8)
1 small head white cabbage, thinly shredded
1 small head purple cabbage, thinly shredded
2 shredded carrots
1/4 c minced red onion
2 stalks diced celery
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbs dijon mustard
1/4 cup Vegenaise
pinch salt and pepper
1 tsp paprika
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to coat everything with the dressing. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. Yum!
This is Laura, and I have approved these "Crab" Cakes! :)

What an amazing meal! I love coleslaw too. I was one of the only kids who liked it in school, so my friends would give me theirs. Score!
