  1. since when is imitation crab vegetarian?? Isn’t it made from whitefish?? other then that, recipe looks good and interesting and I will try it subing something else for the faux crab…

    1. Hi
      I’m sorry you thought this was a vegetarian recipe as it reads “Main ingredient vegetables” not vegetarian. It’s a great recipe whether you substitute the faux crab or just leave it out. Enjoy!
