Crab Cakes and Roasted Kale

Who doesn't love Crab Cakes! — not only delicious, but also a good low calorie protein source for the weight conscious as well as a good source of vitamin B-12, an often limiting nutrient in the diet of Americans. Accompanied by oven-roasted kale and avocado, this meal is power-packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats.

You’ll find the recipe for these crab cakes in Balanced Eating for a Balanced Life — and note that the patties can be made ahead and frozen for future use. Saving time in the kitchen is important in our fast-paced lives.
