Vegan Crab Cakes

I've been toying around with this for a couple of weeks, and these are definitely taste sensations!

2 slices of bread (any type)
2 Tbsp non-dairy milk
1 Tbsp vegan mayo
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning (copy-cat recipe)
1 lb firm tofu, drained & pressed
salt to taste (no more than 1/4 tsp)

1. In a mixing bowl, tear up the bread into small pieces. Add the milk to moisten the bread. It will be a little sticky.

2. Except for the salt, add & mix the remaining ingredients, crumbling the tofu. Now add the salt to taste.

3. Mix with your hands to make sure the tofu is really crumbled up and everything is all stuck together.

4. Heat a frying pan on medium heat, with just a little bit of oil.

5. Form the mix into (about) 10 patties. Pat them with pressure to make sure the air is out, and that they will stick together.
*Note: Make a thinner, normal sized patty as compared to the very thick normal crab cakes. They are easier to handle, cook better, and have more lovely golden crunch.

6. Fry until golden brown (just a few minutes). Be gentle when flipping the patties.

Avoid fattie patties like the one in the back! Keep them thin!

7. Eat! Enjoy any way you please. On their own with a little mayo, in a sandwich, in a salad, etc.
Makes 10 patties on average.

These were yummy; we had them for dinner tonight. I plunked a few into some sesame seeds before frying-that was tasty, too. I served 'em up with some cocktail sauce.

BTW-I'm also enjoying the fun in Vegan with a Vengeance; thanks for that.

It's true that it takes five minutes to form the loaf, but the bread still has to rise and bake. Darn. A total of five minutes would suit me. It's awfully good, though.

AWESOME! Pan fried some mushrooms in old bay too and mixed it in since mine didn't stick together very well. Also better if you do not add any salt.
