For our anniversary I made boyf's favourite foods which consist of starters for dinner (Vegan Fish Cakes, Spring Rolls & Onion Rings) and Eaton Mess for dessert. They don't really taste like fish cakes, more like crab cakes but still delicious!

Vegan Fish Cakes

Ingredients

1 pk extra firm tofu
1 egg replacer
1 carrot grated
2 Tbsp chopped parsley

Method

In a large bowl mix carrot, egg replacer, parsley, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, hot sauce and salt.
Crumble tofu into the mix and mash together.
Add 3 tbls of flour and mix well.
Scoop out 1 tbls of mixture, shape into a ball then flatten onto some baking paper.
I like to dredge in some extra flour too otherwise they can fall apart easily.
Repeat until mixture is finished.
In a large pan, heat some vegetable oil on a med-high heat, just enough to cook one side at a time.
Once hot add a few cakes at a time, cook until golden then cook other side.
Place onto some paper towls and repeat.
