Recipe Directions

1. In a blender, grind first the sunflower seeds into fine powder. Soaking these seeds would be best, but you don’t have to.

2. Add in all the other ingredients (I sometimes add bell pepper, carrots, or just whatever I have on hand).

 

Earthintruder's Thoughts

By earthintruder

This recipe is so fast and easy!

Throw these balls on a salad or in a collard as a wrap!

I like to put these in a large collard leaf and stuff it with raw olives, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, shredded carrots, and beets. Then top it off with tahini dressing mixed with dill and lemon.

It's so delicious and yummy!

PS: i also grated a clove of garlic and half a shallot using a super fine grater and mixed that in with the ground pumpkin seeds. the directions didn't say what to do with the onion or garlic, so i did it that way and thought it gave a really nice flavor. (i love garlic though, so beware.) be sure to mix this well so you don't get a glob of grated garlic in the middle of one.

this is ridiculous. are you kidding? these are raw?? i halved the recipe and right now that entire half-batch is sitting happily in my tummy. i'm only a raw food dabbler too, so i remember full well what a real falafel tastes like because i had one not that long ago. i couldn't tell the difference between these and the real thing, seriously.

btw, i also used pumpkin seeds as suggested by itastesweet, and i thought that made a big impact because they really do have the color and texture of a falafel that way. also, i made them last night so the flavors could sit and stew for a while before lunch today. i ate them rolled up in romaine with julienned carrot and bell pepper and tahini mixed with lemon juice. f-ing great, thanks! these will be made many more times. : )

this is great! I had them today for dinner with a side dish of raw zucchini and sun dried tomatoes!! Amaizing. I cannot eat raw garlic and onions because they are tooooo strong for my instestine. It irritates it. So, I use celery stalks. Yummy. thanks for sharing it with us.

SOME TIPS:

I used raw organic Pumpkin Seeds instead of Sunflower Seeds and it gave it a nice color like real falafel, and I used fresh Dill which gave it an authentic taste! YUMM, 5 stars! Great ideaa!! :)

i was totally inspired by the idea of rolling nut "batters" into balls as a meal. what a fabulous non-dehydrator recipe. i made this last night with cauliflower "couscous." i rolled the balls in a little dusting of chili pepper and cumin for extra punch =)

Hi EI! I love this idea! You're picture is amazing! I was just looking at a hand crank blender tonight (at cabellas) that doesn't use electricity. This is something that could be done in that!
