As someone who grew up eating fresh, local, wild-caught crab, I may be considered a bit of a crab snob…so when I saw Gardein’s Mini Crispy Crabless Cakes, I was admittedly skeptical. How could a meatless product be anything like a plump, tender crabcake?

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day. After many years of attending holiday events that required multiple hours of travel and eating too much rich food, we no longer “do” a feast for the day. Frankly, we find it much more agreeable to simply have normal meals – the kind we would eat any other day of the year – and maybe, if we’re so inclined, make some holiday-themed dish as a nod to the day.

So why not a dark, toothsome muffin that utilizes the pumpkin “guts”?

What part of the chicken, exactly, does the “tender” come from? Yeah, I don’t know, either; I don’t eat factory-farmed chicken, so when I process a chicken I’ve raised, I’m eating the whole bird. Choosing to eat plant-based meals, though, allows me additional choices for occasional convenience foods, like chick’n tenders. This time, it’s Gardein’s Seven Grain Crispy Tenders.
