These raw vegan meatless meatballs are delicious as a snack or as part of a main meal with sauce and ‘pasta’ as mentioned below.



150g sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds

75g raw walnuts

150g sun-dried tomatoes (or half sun-dried and half fresh tomatoes)

1 tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice

1 tbsp. Tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) or sprinkle in seaweed if you want to avoid soy

1-2 cloves garlic or 1-1 ½ tsp. garlic granules

¼ tsp. chopped basil or 1 ½ tsp. dried basil

1 tbsp. fresh minced rosemary or 1 tsp. dried

2 tbsp. fresh chopped oregano or ½ tsp. dried

½ tsp. chilli powder or cayenne pepper

½ small red onion, minced



  1. Place the seeds and nuts in a bowl with enough fresh water to cover them and soak for 6-8 hours. Drain and rinse well. Do not allow to dry out before adding to the recipe.
  2. Place sun-dried tomatoes (if not in oil) in a bowl with enough water to cover them and let soak for at least one hour. Drain off the water, save for later. Chop up.
  3. Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until fine.
  4. Form into small balls and place on greaseproof paper or waxed dehydrator sheets and place in dehydrator. Dehydrate for 1-2 hours at 104°F/40°C, remove from sheets and put straight onto the dehydrator tray for a remaining 10-12 hours (depending on size).
  5. These freeze really well: you can make a double batch and freeze half for a later date. They can be defrosted by putting them straight into the dehydrator from frozen and dehydrating them for around 2-3 hours. Eat them straight away!
  6. Serve with spiralized sweet potatoes, carrots, couragette (courgetti) and a raw pasta sauce.
