Raw Falafel with Raw Hummus and Marinated Vegetables

Posted Feb 01 2012 7:14pm

These recipes come from one of the raw food classes I took earlier this year. They are slightly adapted to use what I had on hand. I don’t have a Vita-Mix and these three recipes can be made without that pricey piece of equipment! Although they may be a little chunkier….ha ha ha!

Eating raw isn’t an all or nothing thing for me- I just like the idea of preparing and eating raw food dishes because of their high nutritional content. So use what you have on hand and if it isn’t perfectly raw than so be it!

Eat these tapas style, or put them together in a wrap!!

Raw Falafel

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tomato chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 shallots
  • 1/4 cup olives, stones removed (*I used kalamata which means my falafel aren’t technically “raw” due to the way they are processed)
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • pinch of cayenne
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Process all of the ingredients in a food processor until throughly mixed. Form into falafel balls and dehydrate at 145 degrees F for 1 hour, and then 105 degrees F for another hour or so.

Raw Hummus

  • 2 cups grated zuchinni, some water squeezed out
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 clove garlic, chopped
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4-1/2 cup olive oil (start with 1/4 cup until desired thickness is reached)
Blend all ingredients until smooth.
Marinated Vegetables
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh tomatoes, sliced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt
Toss ingredients together for a couple hours, and then dehydrate at 105 degrees F for 1-2 hours until soft.
