Mini Tempeh “crab” Cakes


Who wants to be left out of a summer seafood cook-out? With this recipe, a vegetarian--or someone who is shellfish sensitive--doesn't have to be. These crab cakes lean more toward Maryland style. You can make them in other styles, such as Cajun, by substituting the seasonings here with Cajun seasoning.

12 ounces plain tempeh

1 tablespoon canola oil

1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
