Raw falafels wih Cauli-rice and hummus

Raw falafel balls

I'm not sure I know any vegans that DON'T like falafels! They were a regular in my diet until I went raw vegan. However, I recently discovered that raw vegan falafels do exist and they in fact taste so much nicer than your regular falafel!

Here's how you can make a great, raw vegan falafel meal at home

Spice mix:
1 tbs ground black pepper
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 
1 tsp oregano fine leaves
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tbs maca powder

Falafel mix:
2 tbs ground flaxseed
Juice of half a lemon
2 cup of grated carrot
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley
Dash of olive oil
1 date 
Spice Mix
Blitz in the food processor.
May need a dash of water to help get the right consistency to roll them.

Raw hummus sauce:
1 cup of mixed sunflower seeds and cashews (pre-soaked)
1 clove garlic
1 tbs tahini
1 tsp himalayan sea salt
1/2 zucchiniBlitz all ingredients up in a high speed blender. 

Half a small cauliflower
1 tomato (from our neighbours garden)
Half a burpless cucumber 
1 Corn cob

Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until vegetables have a rice like consistency. 

Wash and prepare half a red cabbage to use the leaves for the wraps.


Like the photo below shows, this is a great dish for you and a few friends, because everyone loves playing with food and assembling their own little falafel wrap. I wouldn't advise you make this for a first dinner date or anything though, if you're like me there is no graceful way to eat these.

  1. Is the spice mix the ingredients for the felafel balls? Are they the delicious ones we had at B's bday? Sooooooo making these!
