Vegetarian Crab Cakes

My god mum Ing Ing is having a vegetarian diet for two weeks so I decided to post some vegetarian recipes for her to try out. This recipe is from allrecipes and it's sorta a vegetarian style crab cake. While it might not taste totally like crab cakes, it's a healthy alternative and tastes great too!

Photo by Connie,


  • 2 1/2 cups grated zucchini (it's good to squeeze out the excess water first)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (you can use seasoned bread crumbs: recipe here)
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM (This is specially to give it a crab cake taste but you can use your own style seasoning. I personally used curry powder with garlic salt and fresh group pepper and some dried parsley)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, egg, and butter or margarine. Stir in seasoned crumbs, minced onion, and seasoning. Mix well.
  2. Shape mixture into patties. Dredge in flour.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot. Fry patties in oil until golden brown on both sides.
