Anybody have a vegan lobster roll recipe you have tried and enjoyed? Bonus points if you're from New England and have had the real thing, so you can compare. I've found a few to try on Google but want to know which ones to trust!

Thanks.

I don't have one, but will watch this thread with interest. (Damn. Now I'm craving a vegan lobster roll, on a proper grilled, buttered bun!)

I will say I had a tasty one at Veggie Galaxy once as a special and I'm not above asking them for their recipe if my luck runs out online!

I have nothing to add but I too will be watching this thread (said all of us Boston PPKers).

This thread made me google what a lobster roll is, and now I want a vegan version, too!

Also useless but watching. (I've never had the real thing, so I couldn't even guess how to make one.)

This isn't quite lobster, but has anyone tried the Sophie's Kitchen products? Maybe you could use the shrimp or scallops as the lobster. I want a lobster roll now!

There's one in Lusty Vegan using hearts of palm that I thought was intriguing. I haven't bought the book yet, so I haven't tried it. I did find the recipe available online though: http://veganstreet.com/heartsofpalmlobsterrolls.html

I'm not going to be a lot of help but I'm thinking that either hearts of palm or jackfruit are going to be in order here.

There's one in Vegan Slow Cooking for Two that is basically just tofu, Old Bay, and vegan mayonnaise if I remember correctly. I can look it up for you later if you want. However, disclaimer- I haven't tried the recipe and I never had a real lobster roll!

i was going to say, okay, i am a barbarian but to me lobster roll is pretty much all about the crunchy roll and mayo. whenever i have had it it could have been anything in that mayo, because it was just sweet and not much else.
(sorry, don't throw tomatoes. i never got the lobster roll craziness.)

I may be in the minority, but I really don't like jackfruit as a sub for meaty/fishy things. I'd be inclined to go with something like shredded king oyster mushrooms for the "lobster" (maybe marinate and/or prepare it in a way that calls for seaweed for an "oceanic" vibe) and then proceed with the mayonnaise, celery, paprika, s & p, etc. as usual. And of course the buttered, grilled split-top roll is non-negotiable!

I just have to say that I was so confused by this thread because I thought a lobster roll was sushi.

I'd say it's a sandwich but we're currently having issues in that department.

I was about to say the same thing. I am definitely not a fan of jackfruit and when I've had it subbed as meat, all I taste is jackfruit and sauce (which tastes terrible).

I agree, but I'll put myself even further out on a limb and say I'm not fond of subbing protein-y meaty things with vegetables. Like the dreaded carrot hot dog. I prefer using tofu or other more protein-rich vegan subs, just because vegetables alone are not as filling as main dish.

Maybe extra firm tofu that's been frozen, thawed, pressed to death like Giles Corey, and then shredded and somehow - for want of a better word - "lobsterized"?

No matter how we do it, I think we can all agree on one thing, and that is that the vegan lobster roll needs to happen, STAT.

"Lobsterized" will be the new YouTube dance trend!

Just brainstorming, but I remember Fat free Vegan did crabcakes made with okara:
http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/07/ok ... cakes.html

I wonder if crab has a similar texture to lobster? No idea, I never had either one when i was omni.

Yeah, I kind of want to try making something like this. I don't know if I'm the best person to taste test it though since I don't really remember what most non-vegan things taste like anymore.

I feel like a combo of hearts of palm and tofu might be the winner. Hearts of palm will give a better texture, but tofu will provide actual protein and substance. I need to go to the store ASAP so I can make this.

I've seen really skilled vegan bloggers using shredded yuba/tofu skin in things like this - might that work even better than hearts of palm?

The use of lobster mushrooms give this one the look of lobster salad, which I like. The rest of the ingredients are an abomination,however. They're calling it a "spin" on a New England lobster roll. Well, it certainly spun.

http://blog.sporkfoods.com/2013/08/17/l ... mushrooms/

Since it's all about the buttery, grilled buns, I highly recommend buying the pan. I ordered mine thinking I would use it once or twice before sending it off to wallow in my graveyard of unused cooking gadgets, but I actually use it all the time!
