Crab cakes w yogurt avocado dipping sauce

  • Crab Cakes:

    1 6 oz can crab meat
    1/8 cup chopped yellow onion
    1 egg
    1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour
    cayenne pepper
    garlic powder
    parsley (fresh or dried)
    2 tbsp olive oil

    Mix all ingredients EXCEPT OIL together and form into two patties. If desired, use additional garbanzo flour on outside of formed patties. Refrigerating patties a half hour helps them hold their shape better, but is not required. Heat small skillet or frying pan and add oil. When very hot, place patties into skillet and cook about 5-7 minutes each side.

  • Oh, I forgot, I only used half of sauce recipe with 2 crab cakes. I'm saving the other half to dip some veggies in!
  • I'm guessing this is phase II due to the garbanzo flour?
  • There seems to be some debate on that. The only ingredient in it is garbanzo beans which are allowed on phase 1, but does changing the consistency of them to a flour make them inappropriate? There is a poster that had mentioned making her own p1 friendly falafel mix that used it so I figured it was okay.
