Falafel the Raw Food Way

I love food. I love flavor. I love falafel! There is a great little restaurant in Boulder where you can order your falafel and choose from all kinds of sides to put with them. It is quick, yummy and there is a wonderful outside patio where you can sit, eat and watch the traffic on Pearl Street go by. Desperate for a raw food recipe that recreates these tasty little favorites, I sprouted chickpeas and got to work. Paired with a raw recipe for “sour cream” and a mango salsa, this raw food recipe completely hits the spot!



Chickpeas or Garbanzo Beans are a great way to add a complete protein to your raw food diet. They are full of fiber and trace minerals. They are low glycemic and are a good source of iron.

    Oh my! Oh my! I made the falafels and they turned out great!!! My husband even loves them! I did add a bit more cumin and coriander to mine and a pinch of sea salt for taste, but over all it was wonderful. I also did my own take on a mango salsa that had tomatoes in it and it was all good. Thanks so much for the recipe!!!!!!

    Love falafel and this recipe sounds really interesting. I too have been wanting to know a substitute for young coconut. I live in Seattle, a large city with plenty of natural food and specialty food stores but I have yet to find organic young coconuts, and that’s the only way I would buy them. This keeps a lot of raw recipes out of reach. I look forward to trying this recipe without the cream, though – I think it will still be yummy.

    Falafel is one of my favorite foods ever. I’ll have to try this version. AND, I grew up in Boulder! I’ve been missing it a lot lately, so it was nice to have the reminder of Pearl Street this morning. 🙂

    Susan these look awesome! The cooked falafels are just so greasy and so these look like a much better alternative:) Thank you for sharing!
