Good Friday in Bermuda involves brunch of fish cakes on hot cross buns and flying homemade kites at the beach. I decided I had to take part in both, and was thrilled to hear of a local caterer offering vegan fish cakes and hot cross buns through the local health food store!
These were amazingly tasty vegan patties. I've never had an actual fish cake before, but I had my seafood-eating friends sample a taste and they said it was quite close in texture.

Cheryl Kerr (aka Sistah Saute) makes wonderful vegan food for Cafe Eden, which is in the ABC Store (a health food store run by the Adventist Church) in Hamilton, Bermuda. These vegan fish cakes were a special order, but every day there's a fantastic selection of delicious things.
Cheryl has generously shared one of her recipes, which is surprisingly simple and full of wonderfully healthy whole plant foods.
I enjoyed mine in a few different ways - on (vegan) hot cross buns for Good Friday with my tahini-dill mayo, heated on the BBQ, and as part of a massive salad.
And be sure to watch the video to check out my awesome pirate kite! I was up late Thursday night brushing tissue paper onto the balsa wood kite frame...
