I have been trying to work more raw food into my diet. Since it has been so darn hot, I can’t bring myself to turn on the stove (especially since I don’t have A/C). Although this recipe isn’t technically raw (since I don’t have a dehydrator) it is still super healthy and delicious!!!!
These veggie nuggets are hearty and filling. They have a great flavor! They have a tomato flavor from the sun dried tomatoes and they is mellowed out with the sweet corn and the sunflower and sesame seeds.
These guys are a little time consuming, but you get a TON of nuggets out this recipe. After they are made, they are a great quick lunch or an amazing topping for a salad. This is totally time well spent!
We went paddle boarding (our first time) this weekend at a local lake and these nuggets were a perfect lunch. I even got my Mother and her friends to try them. They all loved them. I even got asked for the recipe.
Based on a recipe by Raw. Vegan. Not Gross.
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds, soaked 1 hour in 6 oz of water
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoons miso
- 1 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked 1 hour
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1/2 onion
- 3 ears corn
- 1 cup nutritional yeast
- 2 cup ground sunflower seeds
- 2 cups ground sesame seeds
- 1 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon chile pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Start soaking your chia seeds and sun dried tomatoes for 1 hour.
Add the maple syrup and apple cider vinegar to the blender and pulse. Next add in the garlic, chili powder, miso, cayenne, cumin, salt, and chia seeds. Blend again.
Add onion, tomato, sun-dried tomatoes, and corn. If you start having problems blending, just use a spatula to move the mixture down and make sure everything is getting blended. Pour this mixture into a bowl and clean out your blender.
Grind sunflower and sesame seeds in a high-speed blender or coffee grinder. Add your ground seeds and nutritional yeast in with the mixture already in your bowl, and mix everything together with a spatula.
In a small bowl, assemble your breading mixture by just tossing together your ground flax, chili pepper, and salt.
To make our patties, use a large soup spoon to scoop it up, and form into a patty shape, coat each patty with your breading mixture, then lay it on your dehydrator sheet, or on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Dehydrate overnight, or bake in an oven for about an hour at 200 degrees F, flip them, and then bake for one more hour.
I know it isn’t raw, but I served mine with ketchup.
