Raw Vegan “Meatballs”

  1 rater(s)

Get out your dehydrator and ready your taste buds for some serious deliciousness. These raw vegan “meatballs” are a game changer, especially if you miss cooked food while cleansing. They are more labor intensive than a simple salad, but sometimes you have to get manipulate ingredients to create raw entrees.

This recipe is purely for the “meatballs,” but we imagine that you’ll want a sauce to go with them. We recommend pairing these with our raw vegan marinara sauce recipe (click here to view that recipe). Leave the sauce blending for a few extra minutes to naturally warm it up. Sauce up the “meatballs” and dig in! You can enhance the dish even more by adding zoodles to the mix!

  • Prep Time: 1h
  • Total Time: 1h

Ingredients

  • 1 c raw walnuts, soaked in water for 2 hours
  • 1 date, pitted and chopped
  • 1/4 c celery, finely diced
  • 1/4 c red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/4 c carrot, grated
  • 1/4 c zucchini, grated
  • 1/4 c flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes (not in oil)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed. You may need to stop blending, scrape down the sides, and continue blending so it can evenly combine.
  2. Once the mixture is well combined, use a tablespoon to portion out about 20 balls. Transfer the balls to dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 115º F for 6-8 hours.
  3. If you decide to make the raw marinara sauce to go with these balls, do it right before you remove them from the dehydrator.
  4. Remove the balls from the dehydrator, plate them up, and enjoy your meal.
