Ingredients

  • 14.5 oz can/jar hearts of palm

  • 2 ¼ tsp panko bread crumbs

  • pinch of salt and pepper

  • egg replacement of choice = to ½ egg (we used Neat Egg)

  • 2 ¼ tsp vegan mayo

  • ¼ tsp dry mustard

  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with oil.

  2. Drain hearts of palm.

  4. Add breadcrumbs, salt & pepper, & Old Bay seasoning to hearts of palm. Fold together with a spoon. Gently mash with a potato masher or fork, to create a crablike texture as the hearts of palm break apart.

  5. In a large measuring cup, whisk together egg substitute, mayo & dry mustard. Once well blended, add to the hearts of palm mixture. Fold together until well mixed.

  6. Form 2 Tbsp sized balls (an ice cream scoop works well) for mini, or ¼ cup for traditional sized crab cakes, packing the mixture into the scoop so it stays together, and carefully place on the baking sheet.

  7. Bake on center rack for 10-17 minutes, until the bottom of the crab cakes have browned.

  8. Allow to sit for a minute or 2 before serving.

Delicious Potato Crisp Tofu Nuggets

POTATO CRISP TOFU NUGGETS

Potato Crisp (chips) Tofu Nuggets

Recipe from: The Colorful Family Table by Ilene Godofsky Moreno


(prep time: 30 minutes [not including tofu press time], cook time: 30 minutes (6 minutes airfryer), makes: 14-28 nuggets [depends how you cut them...see below] )


Ingredients

  • 1 pack firm or extra firm tofu

Lay another clean towel on top of the tofu slices & lay another cutting board or a baking pan on top. If the top cutting board/pan is not very heavy, place some cans of soup, etc on top to add weight. Press for at least 30 minutes but 5 - 7 hours is best (in the refrigerator).

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease the pan. (unless you are using an air fryer)

  3. Cut the tofu pieces into 4ths (we cut into halves in the video but think smaller would be best).

  4. Toss tofu in the tamari in a large bowl & allow to sit during the next steps.

  5. Add the ground flaxseed & 3 Tbsp of water to a bowl & whisk together. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  6. Smash the potato crisps/chips and place in a large bowl or on a plate.

  7. After the 10 minutes, whisk the olive olive, maple syrup & dijon mustard into the flaxseed mixture.

  8. Dip each piece of tofu into the batter & then coat with the chips. Place on the baking sheet.

  9. Bake for 20 minutes, flip, bake 10 more minutes. (air fryer: 6 minutes on high)

  10. Enjoy!

Your online classes give us community at a time when we cannot be physically together and that is an incredible blessing! Your instruction is second to none! We laughed! We cooked! We ate! I cannot wait to share this with more friends and do it again! Our entire family loved it! Thank you for inspiring all of us, Jason!
-Tracey

I loved the class today! The in person classes are so much fun....but I have to say being able to work in my own kitchen via a zoom class was amazing!!!!! I can’t until next time!
-Patricia

Thank you so much for the fun, instructional and engaging cooking class! Lucy and I really enjoyed it and learned some new skills and ingredients along the way. The garlic pretzel knots are so delicious! You are a great teacher and host. We will definitely do a class with you again.

I enjoyed your class last night! I appreciated your enthusiasm for what you taught us, and your patience as I have never been known as a good cook! It was a really fun night out for me and I learned so much from you.

-Laura


Thank you for the wonderful cooking class. It truly exceeded my expectations! You were very informative about vegan cooking and products, which is greatly appreciated as I sometimes struggle for ideas on my vegan journey. I have been singing your praises to my coworkers who are curious about vegetarian/vegan eating. Thank you again for a wonderful evening. Your natural charisma and sincerity make you an awesome educator!

-Lois


We have been to several cooking classes with Jason. It's our new favorite date night! Jason is very organized and creates a fun atmosphere, down to the centerpiece and music selection. It is a great time and is appropriate for anyone, whether you have been vegan for years or just want to learn about it.

-Jennifer


I have been wanting to attend one of Jason's classes and finally had the chance on Friday for a picnic-themed menu! Wonderful food, great company, and I have already whipped up one of the recipes within 24 hours! Yum! Jason makes cooking vegan easy and delicious! My husband and I will definitely be on the lookout for future classes. Highly recommend!


-Shana Lee


This is a must-do event. You don't have to be vegan at all to attend a class. Absolutely delicious cooking recipes and ideas. You can't go wrong with healthy food!

-Casey Sue


What an awesome experience tonight. Everything was delicious. We will definitely make these recipes at home!

-Diane


Such a great experience! Jason & Bill are great hosts! Food was incredible. Can't wait to sun up for more classes!!!

-Cindy


I had an amazing time at his Vegan Mexican Fiesta class last night! Wonderful new foods and wonderful company. A great experience for whatever foods your prefer!

-Andre

I've taken two classes and loved them both! The food is delicious and Jason is great teacher, chef and host. My non-vegan friends that attended loved the food too. And I've been able to take the recipes Jason provides and make the dishes at home - they've all turned out great! A highly recommended night of fun and food!
Beth

I recently attended a class with a friend and we had a blast. Such a beautiful home and atmosphere. Although I do cook a lot at home, I rarely have time to make complicated dishes. Everything looked so beautiful and Jason also made it quick and easy to understand. We had an amazing experience and we already can’t wait for the next class.
Alex

So I went to Jason's class last night and had a wonderful evening. Jason is so warm and welcoming and funny, besides being a great instructor. Jason made the recipes easy to understand and so doable. I am a pretty good cook, and an aspiring vegan, so have a lot to learn about Vegan cooking. Jason's demo broke everything down and he offered great tips along the way. It was so much fun trying everything he made. The mozzarella was ridiculously delicious! As was the pepperoni and tiramisu. Highly recommend.
Patty L


We absolutely LOVE the classes! Jason shares not only recipes and instructions, but also tips and techniques, substitutions for allergies, and where to get ingredients for the best price. The dishes are easy to recreate at home. As a bonus, we met a lot of fun people.

-Jennifer

I absolutely loved Jason's class! Food was delicious! The classes are perfect for anyone...anyone who loves to cook, eat, learn, laugh with friends....I am not vegan, but left with so many tips and healthy options! The recipes are so well written that it will be easy to replicate what he demonstrated for us. Such a great evening....can't wait to return for future classes!
-Sue


5+ stars! Excellent demonstration as we watched and ate every delicious course! Questions, fun, and laughter! I felt as if I were family. A wonderful evening! Excellent presentation, and the recipes are manageable even with teenagers, work, sports, etc.

-Heather


I am not vegan was invited to come to the class. I was so reluctant....Much to my surprise, the food was amazing!! Jason is extremely talented and teaches a very relaxed, informative and easy to follow class. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to eat!!!

-Mary


I have experienced two cooking demonstrations with Jason and it’s been nothing but fantastic each time. Education, eats, recipes, and laughs are all included. Amazing value for the price!
-Tara

I learned so much and I cannot wait to try all the recipes! Jason was a fantastic instructor and the food was delicious! Can’t wait to take another class!!
-Rachel

Delicious food in a beautiful and comfortable atmosphere. We learned about food preparation and tasted some delicious recipes. I’ll definitely be taking this class again in the future.
-Kathy


Enjoyed the class very much. DIVINE!

-Marie Ann


I had such a nice evening!!! The recipes were delicious; there was not one that I didn't like! I plan on making many of them (all of them...haha) for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas and I'm sure they will be a part of our family tradition too! Your attention to detail was wonderful, from the beautifully set table, to typing out a shopping list for us, and having all the ingredients prepped.


My husband and all 3 of my kids are vegan and I know they will appreciate these too! The recipes you prepared Wednesday night will continue to encourage people to adopt a plant based lifestyle. Once people see that vegans don't eat just nuts, seeds and salads, and that we eat great tasting dishes, I am sure that more people would eat this way!


Thanks so much again! I would love to go to any future classes that you would have.
-Patty


Everything was wonderful—I’m still amazed at how many dishes you prepared in the 2 hours!

Food presentation, instructions, written material (the shopping list was an excellent idea!), quantity and quality of recipes, and taste, was excellent!

I’m looking forward to trying the recipes myself!

- Lorraine


I ate so well today. Randomly signed up for a Vegan Thanksgiving tips & taste class...healthy-ish twists on classics and some new ideas. I asked our host if he would leave his job to be my personal chef!

-Maddie


Beautiful evening...Lots of laughs and made some new friends. Jason in an amazing cook!While I am not a vegan, I love to cook and try new things. Vegan is by no means dull and boring! Absolutely delicious! I highly recommend his class!

-Donna


Thank you so much for a wonderful evening, filled with yummy vegan food, lots of laughs and a beautiful warm setting! I can’t wait to make some of your delicious recipes, Jason!

-Katie


Thank you for allowing me to be a student in your class. I truly enjoyed meeting you, Bill, and the other attendees in your class. Your food was delicious, your techniques, explanations, extra hints, shopping list, and ingredient details were very much appreciated. I look forward to attending and enjoying additional classes, and witnessing your growth and transformation.

-Chick


Thank you so much Jason! Your class was wonderful. The food was amazing! I will definitely be using all of these recipes in the future. Cooking and experimenting in the kitchen is a favorite pastime of mine. It is like "therapy" for me. I have been plant based for almost 2 years and honestly never thought food could taste so good. I look forward to attending another class!
