    An important step on the path to forgiveness is looking within to pardon yourself before you can release someone else of blame and move forward positively. Elizabeth Upton

    Today's lunch Crab Cakes without the crab....delicious! emoticon

    1 15 oz can garbanzo beans , rinsed. *Save liquid
    2 14 oz cans hearts of palm , drained, rinsed and cut in half
    4 tablespoons reserved garbanzo bean liquid
    1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon vegan worcestershire sauce (*see note)
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1 teaspoon dijon mustard
    1/2 cup green onion , sliced
    2 teaspoons kelp granules (*see note for sub)
    1 tablespoon dried parsley
    1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning (or any seafood seasoning)
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt , more to taste
    1 teaspoon granulated garlic
    1 cup breadcrumbs (panko or regular) + more for breaded coating
    1/4 cup preferred oil for pan-frying (divided)

    In a food processor add the garbanzo beans and hearts of palm together. Pulse just a few times to break it up. Set aside.

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk the reserved liquid (from the beans) well, until it's slightly foamy. Then add the vegan mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and all the dry seasonings. Whisk to combine well.

    Now add the bread crumbs, green onion, and hearts of palm and garbanzo bean mixture. Gently fold to combine. Taste for salt or seasoning, add more if needed. Pop the mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes. This helps the mixture stay together a bit better.

    Place enough breadcrumbs onto a shallow plate that will coat patties evenly. Take mixture out of freezer. Place about 1/4 cup of mixture into your hands to form a ball. Then gently flatten to form it into a patty shape. Coat patty in the bread crumbs on each side. Place aside and continue until the mixture is gone.

    Heat a large skillet over medium heat (about 2-3 minutes). Add about 2 tablespoons of oil and wait until it gets hot and shimmery before adding the patties. If you place the patty in the pan, and you hear it sizzle, it's ready.

    Place about 4-5 patties on your pan at one time, but make sure you don't overcrowd the pan because they won't cook properly. Pan-fry them about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until light golden brown. Try to only flip each patty once. When done, transfer the patties to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil. Wipe out pan before the uncooked patties are added. Add fresh oil and continue until all patties are complete.

    Serve hot with vegan tartar sauce, a lemon wedge and top with chopped green onions.

    (Forgiveness) isn’t something that can happen overnight; it starts w/small steps and can take a lot of time and effort to release these destructive emotions. Elizabeth Upton
