Day 168 – Falafels

Falafels
Falafels

I just love raw falafels.  They taste just like real falafels without the ‘cooked’ part!

Mine are currently in the dehydrator – so you will hear all about how good they taste tomorrow when I take them out!

Ingredients:

3 cups almonds, soaked and ground into breadcrumb consistency

1 stalk celery, roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 carrots, roughly chopped

1 onion, roughly chopped

2 Tbsp. Tahini

2 Tbsp. fresh coriander

2 Tbsp. fresh parsley

2 Tbsp. Nama Shoyu

2 Tbsp. olive oil

Large pinch of salt

Method:

Process together the nuts, celery, carrots, garlic, onion until well combined.

Add the remaining ingredients and process until a crumbly dough forms.  The mixture should stick together when squeezed.  If too dry add a Tbsp. water.

On a lined dehydrator tray, place a scone or cookie dough cutter.  Press mixture into the cutter and then remove cutter leaving a round flat dough falafel.

Continue this process with the remaining ingredients.

Dehydrate for 10 hours – flip and remove teflex and dehydrate a further 2 hours.

Serve with salad and hummus or some nut cheese or a drizzle of olive oil 🙂
