The problem with the recipe is the you have over 1 and 1/4 cups of fat to only divide 4 ways. I am sure there is a way to lower the fat dramatically

Yikes! I didn't think to check it out on the recipe analyzer, but the fat sounds really high. A McDonald's Quarter Pounder with cheese is 500 calories and only 24 grams of fat, and this has no animal products in it.

I suppose you can finely cut the hearts of palm and make small patties and have them as an appetizer or party food.

Edited to add: You can also bake or broil these. That will probably cut down on the fat. Watch the video for details.

This has to be just for special occasions. It has over 500 calories per serving and over 50 grams of fat per serving....

I bet it tastes good though. Most fat laden appetizers do.

From a new local vegan/vegetarian restaurant. I haven't been yet, but I belive this is one of their signature dishes, and will definitely order it when I go, if I don't make it first:

Ingredients:
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1/2 cup celery, minced
3/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup carrot, minced
1 bell pepper, minced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 16-ounce can hearts of palm, chopped
3/4 cup vegenaise or other vegan mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups breadcrumbs

Preparation:
Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat. Lightly cover the bottom of the pan with vegetable oil and let heat. Brown celery, onion, carrot, pepper and parsley. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl combine hearts of palm, vegenaise, sea salt and 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs. Mix well. Add heated vegetable mix to the bowl and mix well. Let the mixture cool in a refrigerator for 1 hour.

Once the mixture has cooled, remove from the refrigerator and form into patties. Coat each side with the remaining breadcrumbs.

Heat the sauté pan over medium heat and cover the bottom of the pan with vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, add the palm cakes to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until each side is golden brown. Serve with a side salad and sauce of your choice.

Bon Apetit!

Edited to Add: This serves 4
