Raw Food Wednesday: Falafel in a Romaine Lettuce Wrap, No-Bean Hummus, Mixed Greens Salad with Cashew "Feta" and Biscotti

Raw Food Wednesday 3/21

Falafel in a Romaine Lettuce Wrap
(adapted from RAWvolution: sprouted chickpea, sunflower seed, almonds, lemon juice, nama shoyu, garlic, olive oil, sea salt, fresh ground turmeric, fresh ground cumin seeds, fresh ground coriander)

No-Bean Hummus
(from RAWvolution: zucchini, garlic, raw tahini, salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon juice)

Mixed Green Salad with Cashew "Feta"


(from Raw Food /Real World)

The Falafel are made with sprouted chickpeas, which are then shaped into rounds -- in the book they're made more round and are supposed to dehydrate for 32 hours(!) -- but smaller sized, it took only 9 hours at 115F.

They're wrapped in a romaine lettuce leaf with some of the hummus, onion, cucumber and tomato. Later I cut the lettuce into section, one per falafel -- it made for a less wieldy, "hand-held" solution...

The biscotti were fabulous -- pistachio, almonds, agave and dried cherries made into loaf and dehydrated, then cut into strips and dehydrated for another six hours -- firm, yet chewy enough that you won't break a tooth ;)
