Ceres Organics, 5 Ways With Almond Butter
Vegan Crabless Crab Cakes
For that classic crab-cake style dish, easy as a bar snack, starter with a green salad, sandwiched between lovely fluffy white burger buns for an ultimate meal, I’ve created a CRACKER Ceres based recipe for the whole vegan family. Give it a crack. Mix it up with different fresh herbs, or add feta or greens to give it a boost.
The almond spiked curry mayo is EPIC. I was quite surprised how moreish and banging this was. Works great with vegetables, crudite, and as a salad dressing. Vegans will love this.
Serves 2. 10 min prep time, 10 min cook time
Vegan Crab Cake
1 tin Ceres jackfruit, drain/shred
2 tbsp Ceres vegan mayo
1 cup panko crumb
1 tbsp dijon mustard
½ cup drained corn kernels
1 tbsp Ceres Tamari
3 spring onion, sliced fine
1 tsp Cupboard spices: options paprika, curry powder, chilli flake, turmeric
Sauce: Spicy Curried Cocktail Sauce
3 tbsp Ceres vegan mayo
1 tbsp Ceres almond butter
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp Ceres ketchup
1 tsp tamari
Squeeze lemon juice to taste
mix the jackfruit with the mayo, breadcrumb, mustard, corn, tamari and spring onion. Sprinkle over spices of your choice, I LOVE paprika, cumin and cayenne. Season.
Let the mix sit for 5 min, and for the crumbs to absorb the liquid and to create some ‘sticking’. If too dry, add more vegan mayo.
press into patties/fritters.
heat a non stick pan, add some neutral cooking oil/coconut oil/olive oil, heat to medium and carefully cook for 4min each side. Be careful to check it isn’t too hot as can burn easily.
Flip and cook a further 3-4 min. Drain on paper towel and excess oil
Curried Cocktail Sauce
Mix all ingredients well, season with tamari and lemon juice.
Crumbed Tofu w Kimchi Dressing, Almond XO Greens
This quick and easy tofu number requires one pan, and little add on ingrediants. I’m always a fan of big flavours and this is one not to miss. Who doesn’t love crispy tofu??!

Indonesian Winter Pumpkin, Fried Tofu & Almond Butter Curry w Black Beans
One. Pot. Wonder. Did someone say Winter Pumpkin + Tofu + Almond Butter Curry? Helllll Yes. Again, this one is for busy people. I throw this together all in under 10 mins and let it do its thing for 20-25 minutes. I add black beans (you could use red kidney or lentils) and soft boiled eggs for extra protein and for a bit more of a traditional spin.

1 tbsp tamari
1 skin on Buttercup pumpkin, seeded, diced
1 tin Ceres Black Beans, drain/rinse

Juice of half lemon or lime
Heat heavy base deep pot/cast iron slow cooker or le creuset
Add tbsp neutral oil/peanut oil, add your onion/garlic/ginger, saute for 5 min
Add curry paste & almond butter, stir well
Add coconut cream, water, tamari and black beans
Bring to boil, cover and reduce to medium heat, cook 20-25 minutes
Add tofu after 10 minutes
After 20 minutes check the seasoning, add the lemon juice and BOOM. Its ready
Garnish with coriander/mint/laksa leaves, peanuts.
Extra: add an 8 minute peeled soft boiled egg per person with the tofu and you really have a winner.
