Raw falafel recipe

Falafel is a delicious, nutritous and very simple to make. This raw version captures the nutty flavor and texture well. Serve with raw tzatziki (dill cucumber sauce) for the full Greek-food experience.

Ingredients
1 cup peeled almonds, soaked overnight
1 cup walnuts, soaked for several hours
1 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup raisins, soaked several hours
1 cup chopped fresh herbs (oregano, basil, coriander and parsley blend)
1 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons crushed garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon sea salt

Preparation
Process the almonds, walnuts, sesame seeds, pine nuts and raisins in a food processor.
Scoop the mixture in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well with your hands. Roll into 1 to 2 inch balls and serve.
