Recipe: Vegan Lobster Rolls


For the “Lobster” Filling:
  • 2 cans (14 oz each) of heart of palm, drained and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
For Serving:
  • 4 vegan hot dog buns, lightly toasted
  • Lettuce leaves, for lining the buns (optional)
  • Vegan butter or margarine, for toasting the buns


For the “Lobster” Filling:
  1. After draining the heart of palm, slice them into thin, lobster-like strips. You can use a knife or your fingers to pull them apart gently.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced heart of palm, vegan mayonnaise, lemon juice, chopped celery, sliced green onion, and fresh dill.
  3. Season the mixture with salt and black pepper to taste. Be mindful of the salt, as some vegan mayonnaise brands can be quite salty. Start with a pinch and adjust as needed.
  4. Gently fold all the ingredients together until the heart of palm is coated evenly with the creamy dressing. Taste and adjust the seasonings if necessary.
For Serving:
  1. Lightly toast the vegan hot dog buns. You can do this in a toaster or by spreading vegan butter or margarine on the inside of the buns and toasting them in a skillet until golden brown.
  2. If desired, line the toasted buns with lettuce leaves.
  3. Spoon the vegan lobster roll filling generously into each bun.
