Hearts of Palm Lobster Rolls [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
I first started working with hearts of palm for a traditional vegan crab cake recipe. But then I thought, what else could I make in the seafood family? Aha! A lobster roll. I re-imagined this New England summertime favorite while maintaining traditional flavors and textures. Hey, vegan butter is just as good as the real thing.

Hearts of Palm Lobster Rolls [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

2

Cook Time

15

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons grapeseed or safflower oil
  • 1 (14-ounce) can hearts of palm (not packed with sugar), rough chopped to consistency of crab meat
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 (6-inch) hoagie rolls
  • Vegan butter
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Preparation

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the hearts of palm and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook until golden brown on all sides. Set aside to cool. Add the celery and peppers and mix well.
  2. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the onion mixture to the hearts of palm. Mix well. Add the Old Bay seasoning, lemon juice, and mayo.
  4. Toast the  hoagie rolls until gold brown, then butter the insides.
  5. Divide the hearts of palm mixture between both rolls. Serve warm with wedges of lemon.

I love the name "lobster roll". A hearts of palm roll is meaningless to me - but a vegan lobster roll is a taste I can imagine.

What if we called them lobster-LESS rolls? Would that make it easier for people to sleep at night? Lol! ;)

Wait, so there's no lobster in it? Why make me think there is? I see what you did there...& I hate it.

When did it happen? When did lobster become a vegetable?? Vegans don't eat sentinent beings. I'm pretty sure lobsters are able to feel pain.

I get so tired of people saying "why would you want to pretend it's meat?". Some of us are enlightened, but have family members or friends who aren't. For the love of dog, stop criticizing recipes that try to approximate what some are used to. People fear what they don't know. Call it whatever you want if it opens someone's mind to something less cruel.

Thank you, Jamie!!! People get so hung up on the names of certain vegan foods. It drives me crazy.. It's just a name, get over it!

So tired of vegans not supporting vegans. Looks and sounds delish.
