Carrot Falafel with Tangy Tahini Sauce

by Gena on December 8, 2009

Hi guys!

Thanks for helping Courtney out in my last post. Keep the suggestions coming!

A few days ago, I made the possibly reckless decision to invite you all, via email and comments, to send me your raw-ification challenges. That’s right: I want you all to send me dishes that you’d like to see me put a raw spin on. I’ve already received a few (including my favorite, Hungarian parikash from Earth Mother).

One of the more intriguing requests to arrive in my inbox was for raw falafel–a dish I’ve wanted to make raw for some time now! And since I’m all about sesame seeds and juice pulp lately, I decided that I’d make them my starting point. Some trial and error later, a new Choosing Raw favorite, raw carrot falafel with tangy tahini sauce, was born.

This recipe looks impressive, but it’s really, really easy. Begin with two cups of carrot pulp, add ground sesame seeds, herbs, and spices, and roll into balls. That’s it! I used my dehydrator to un-cook the falafel, but you could certainly bake them instead, or put them in the oven at 175 or so with the door ajar for an hour on each side.

However you choose to make them, you should end up with a tasty, healthy, and delicately flavored version of a much adored street food!

020-500x375

Raw Carrot Falafel with Creamy Tahini Sauce (yields 16 falafel and 1 1/2 cups sauce)

For the falafel:

2 cups carrot pulp
1 cup sesame seeds, ground in a coffee or spice grinder, a magic bullet, or a food processor
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1/4 cup Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced very finely (optional)
1/4 cup onion, minced finely (optional)

Mix all ingredients very well by hand, as if you were making meatloaf (ew). Roll into balls about 1 1/2-2 inches thick, flatten gently, and put on a dehydrator try lined with a Paraflex sheet OR onto a baking sheet.

014-500x3751

Dehydrate the falafel at 115 degrees for two hours. Remove the Paraflex sheet, flip them over, and dehydrate for another two hours. If using an oven, bake them at 175 degrees with the oven door ajar for an hour and repeat on the other side.

For the sauce:

Tangy Tahini Sauce (makes about 3/4 cup)

1/4 cup tahini
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp agave syrup
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1 tbsp nama shoyu
1/2 large or 1 very small clove garlic, minced (optional)

Blend all ingredients in a magic bullet, VitaMix, blender, or food processor until smooth and creamy. The sauce should be super tangy and delicious!

Simply plate a few of these, drizzle them with sauce, and serve. The sweet, nutty, spicy quality of the falafel is balanced by the acidity of the tahini sauce. In all? An awesome raw take on a Middle Eastern classic.

I hope you guys give this one a shot soon! It’s a winner.

Have a great night, lovelies.

Mmm, sounds yummy! Can I make my raw-ification request here? I have been craving Chicken Tikka Masala for the past couple weeks and would love to know how to make a vegan/raw version of it. Even just a raw-ed Tikka Masala sauce and a rice substitute would make me happy! Thank you so much in advance if you take on the challenge! :)

Reply

Susan July 24, 2011 at 3:28 pm

This is a great recipe. I’ve made this numerous times and it’s TO DIE FOR! I haven’t figured out how to make a good rice substitute yet, but I’ve heard “zucchini rice” said before. Just not sure how to make it. You could probably just pour it over slices of zucchini or finely chopped cauliflower. I’ve been using regular ol’ rice and it’s amazing. Enjoy!

Teresa December 8, 2009 at 9:51 pm

This could be the reason alone that I buy a juicer. I absolutely love falafel, and rarely ever eat it, because it is usually isn’t the healthiest when buying out. I’ve tried to make it myself with very little success, but I know your recipe will be a winner (they always are). Do you think it would still work to just use grated carrots, or would they be too moist? I at least know I will be making the tangy tahini sauce, whether it is for the falafel another delicious raw dish.

You are awesome (not to mention super brave!) for taking reader’s requests, AND completing them! I just might have to throw in my own request.

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) December 8, 2009 at 10:27 pm

Beautiful food, Gena!
I love how the falafel is basically like a bean-less “veggie burger”. Sorry, not meaning to bastardize this is any way. In fact, one of the reasons I never make vegan “veggie burgers” at home is most of them always call for tons of beans. Which just dont really work well for me. Nature’s imperfect food combo as you’ve said. Anyway, I love that the falafel is working off pulp and seeds, no beans. With glorious parsley and cilantro flakes woven in. So pretty.

And I’ve been making a creamy tahini salad dressing with fewer ingredients than yours and I can’t wait to try the version you’ve posted. Now please tell me you used a squirt bottle to get the drizzle that perfect :)

This looks delicious! I’ll have to try it soon. I created a recipe for juice pulp “latkes” recently on Natalia’s site- carrot/kale juice pulp, onions, spice, and egg fried with as little oil as possible. I tried it again last night with ground pine nuts instead of egg, with favorable results, although more falling apart! This looks like a healthier and tastier cousin of the recipe so I am excited to give it a spin!

Reply

leslie December 9, 2009 at 5:57 am

this is making me really, really sad that i don’t have a juicer. i wonder how it would work with shredded carrot and less liquid to account for the water content? or, perhaps i’ll have to just show up at your apartment begging for pulp. (what an odd statement.)

regardless, brilliant sounding recipe as always!

Could this recipe work with grated carrots? I don’t own a juicer so I don’t have carrot pulp.

Reply

Gena December 9, 2009 at 7:27 am

Hey guys! A bunch of you are asking if you can use grated carrots. You definitely can, but I’d suggest you grate them VERY finely. The texture won’t be quite the same, but it’ll probably work.

Jess of Veg Out! December 9, 2009 at 8:59 am

Falafel is one of my all-time favorite foods, and yours look AMAZING! I have a batch in the dehydrator now. :) I had to use mixed juice pulp because I didn’t have enough carrots on hand & needed to use the pulp I had leftover from my morning juice – and I also added a couple tsp. of cumin because that’s my favorite flavor in traditional falafel. I’ll report back! Thank you!!

Reply

LC @ Let Them Eat Lentils December 9, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Great suggestion on adding the cumin. I think cumin and coriander are the most important flavors of a good falaf.

My bf got me a juicer a few months ago, and I LOVE to juice, but I always feel… guilty about all that pulp going down the drain. I will most definitely save the pulp for this, and also your pulp crackers! Which are gluten-free too.

Just made NON-raw falafel and will definitely making these and doing a taste test comparison!! Can not believe you were able to create something that looks so spot-on that’s completely raw. I’ll have to use my oven without having a dehydrator.

Great way to use up the carrot pulp. Now if you could give me a really great way to use up my green pulp I would be truly grateful. Also luv the tahini dressing.

These recipes look wonderful. As for the Tahini recipe, I was wondering if you tried both sweeteners: agave AND the stevia packet, and if so, how did they compare? Stevia seems a little tricky to me, sometimes the less processed it is, the more of a bitter aftertaste it has.

I’m confused. I found your recipe while looking up ways to use my carrot pulp from juicing. I was interested because it’s raw, but then I looked down at the prep and it says to “Dehydrate the falafel at 115 degrees for two hours”. I’m pretty new to the raw food thing, so maybe I’m not understanding but everything I’ve read about “raw” is that it is RAW- meaning no heat used in any way to destroy the vitamins and nutrients in the food. No warming, no baking, no boiling, no frying. So, in this case, since the food is heated, how can it be considered raw? Please help!

Hi Gena! Love the blog and recipes and been meaning for a long time to ask if you use brown or light (hulled or unhealed) tahini in your sauces? I like them both, hulled is a little smoother tasting and brown a bit nuttier and more distinctive so I’m never sure which one has the better flavour for a sauce?

Reply

Connie January 25, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Is 1 1/4 cups tahini the right amount for the tangy sauce? Connie

Reply

Caryn June 12, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Hi Connie, I was wondering if you ever got a response about the quantity of tahini that goes into the sauce for the raw carrot falafels? I want to make it tomorrow but don’t want to mess up. Would you mind letting me know if you ever got an answer and what it was? Thanks so much.

I look forward to trying this recipe in the next two weeks and reporting back. I thank you, and all chiefs & cooks, who are able to create alternative recipes for some great foods out there that take some of the most common allergies into mind (whether they meant too or not).

Hi there

Sorry if this sounds thick, but what do you mean by carrot ‘pulp’ is that grated carrot or perhaps the leftover carrot after juicing?

I just made these, and they are epic. I switched out apple cider vinegar with raw coconut vinegar, cause I had it on hand. It’s so amazing in an a rainbow chard wrap with shredded carrots, purple cabbage, cucumbers, baby tomatoes, sunflower sprouts, topped with the falafels and doused with the tahini dressing. I have been eating raw for over three years, and this has to be one of the easiest, tastiest recipes I’ve ever made. Will surely make it into my weekly rotation. Thank you!!!!!
