Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of fresh carrot pulp, leftover from making carrot juice
  • 1 cup of sesame seeds, freshly ground (coffee grinder works great for this)
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon flax or chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. sea salt (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • dash of cumin
  • Large, flat Romaine lettuce leaves

Blend everything except lettuce thoroughly in a food processor until the mixture holds together and can be shaped into balls. Using an ice cream scoop, form into balls and place atop Romaine lettuce leaves. Drizzle with the following dressing:

  • 2 Tablespoons raw tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • pinch of sea salt

Whisk together in small bowl until smooth and pour generously over the falafel balls.
