Savoury RAW No-Meat-Balls

Updated: May 21

Savoury RAW No-Meat-Balls


1 C raw sunflower seeds ½ C + 1 T raw almond butter 4 sun-dried tomatoes, soaked and chopped

3 T fresh basil, shredded

1 T nutritional yeast 1 clove of garlic 1 tsp dried thyme 1 tsp dried oregano 1 tsp olive oil

Pinch cumin sea salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until the mixture reaches a texture similar to ground meat.

Scoop the mixture out by into heaping teaspoons and form each meatball. Try not to over-roll them; we are going for “rustic” Italian here!

This mix can be served as balls over raw zucchini pasta as seen here, but it can also be a great vegetarian stand-in for any recipe you’d use ground meat. Try it as a taco or sandwich filling, a base for a raw chili, or as a crunchy topping for salad or soup! This protein-packed flavour blend pairs well with marinara sauce, cashew sour cream or pesto!
