50 States of MoFo: Maryland Tempeh Cakes
Maryland is famous for its crab cakes. I've had the "real" thing, back in the day. Never being much of a seafood fan, I was not smitten with them. However, the other half the I-40 Kitchen household is a crab cake fan of the first order. Thus, we've tried quite a few recipes for vegan clones. We both really like the Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes from Isa Moskowitz's Vegan Brunch. If you don't have the book, you should buy it! However, the recipe can be found online, with the publisher's permission, here.
Isa's recipe is relatively quick and easy. I was able to whip it up after work, with enough cakes leftover for lunch today. With more time, I would have tried to veganize the Smith Island Cake, Maryland's official state dessert, but that will have to be a project for future.
