I love Megan Elizabeth‘s recipes, and here you’ll find her newest recipe: Raw Vegan Falafel!
Although Megan normally follows a low fat raw vegan lifestyle, these falafels are higher in fat, since they have plenty of seeds. Megan does include less fat than most other falafel recipes you’ll find on the web. You’ll find that recipes like thse are normally extremely high fat. You can watch the video here, or scroll down to find the recipe instructions.
Raw Vegan Falafel
2:07 recipe begins – 11:15
3/4 cup raw soaked sunflower seeds
2 c chopped, chunky carrots
1/2 c. cilantro or double if you’re a “cilantro lover”
1/2 c. chopped green onion (scallions)
full teaspoon lime juice
1.2 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1) Food process the ingredients until blended. As Megan explains, you may have to use a spatula for everything to blend as expected. The final result should be “sticky, but solid enough to be mushed to a ball shape.”
2) Roll into falafel ball shape with a spoon or with your hands.
3) Use the 1/4th of a cup of sesame seed to cover the falafel balls
4) The mixture won’t stick together as well as other recipes that involve a higher nut content.
6) Place the balls into the fridge and let them sit for 30 minutes to become firm.
7) If you don’t care if they fall apart, you can eat them right away!
You can keep them in the fridge for 3-5 days, but keep in mind that they lose flavor each day.
ADDING THE PURPLE CABBAGE PITA:
Take lettuce to fill a leaf of cabbage. In the recipe, Megan uses butter lettuce, but she also recommends romaine.
Add 1/2 c of chopped tomatoes and more cilantro, if you like cilantro!
1/2 tbsp. of raw organic tahini (Megan mixes the tahini with 1 tbsp. of water and 1 tbsp. of plant juice).
FILL AND ENJOY!
