Falafel Balls (Raw & Gluten Free)

Submitted by: KRAVMAGAGIRL


falafel balls made with sunflower seeds and not baked or cooked. Great on salads! Recipe taken from falafel balls made with sunflower seeds and not baked or cooked. Great on salads! Recipe taken from
Number of Servings: 20


    2 cups sunflower seeds, unsoaked
    1 cup corriander, chopped
    ½ teaspoon ground cumin
    couple pieces onion
    2 tablespoons tahini
    squeeze of lemon
    2 cloves garlic
    1 pinch sea salt


In a blender, Grind sunflower seeds into fine powder first. Soaking these seeds would be best, but you don’t have to. Then just add all other ingredients. Sometimes I add bellpepper, carrots; just whatever I have on hand.
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. Its SOO delicious! yummy!

    Simple and easy. I didn't have fresh coriander and substituted parsley. Still was recognized as falafel by my kids...and they ate it all as lettuce wraps. Amazing! - 2/15/09
