“Krab” Cakes

Submitted by Shannon Mensah

About the cook: My name is Shannon and I'm a vegan home cook and nutrition student. I've been cooking since I was a little girl but recently made the transition to veganism two years ago for health reasons. Becoming a vegan was one of the best moral, environmental and health decisions I've ever made. I hope to bring plant based food to everyone and show people that there is a healthier alternative to the food they already love!
