Oil-Free Vegan Lobster Rolls

Years ago, before I ate plant-based, I visited San Francisco on business and stayed in a hotel by the fisherman’s wharf. If you haven’t been, I recommend it. It’s a beautiful area!

Anyway, on my downtime, I explored the area, including sampling the fresh seafood, which is very plentiful as you can imagine. Of the dishes I sampled, the fresh lobster rolls were among the best. And ever since I switched to a plant-based lifestyle, I’ve wanted to recreate a vegan version.

After a few attempts, I was able to bring the flavors of the San Francisco wharf back home, in a WFPB way, with these Oil-Free Vegan Lobster Rolls!
