Carrot Curry Bites – vegan, raw

I needed something to do with all of the almond pulp leftover from making fresh almond milk (post on that coming soon). I love carrots and knew their sweetness and moisture would be a good balance to the nuts, and I wanted to add some seeds for additional protein and flavor. Luckily, these came out just right on my first attempt. They come together very quickly and make a delicious snack or addition to a main meal.

The mixture should look like this when you’re done processing it.

Carrot Curry Bites – vegan, raw

1 shallot, chopped
1 -2 cloves garlic, chopped (adjust according to your taste. I like a lot of garlic)
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 cup almonds, soaked overnight and drained (or 1 cup almond pulp left over from making almond milk)
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, soaked 2-4 hours and drained
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in bowl of food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until everything is coarsely chopped and combined, then process for a 10 seconds or until a coarsley blended mixture forms and the dough starts to come together. Use a cookie scoop to form balls about 1 inch in diameter and place on mesh screen of dehydrator tray (or use a spoon to portion the dough and roll into balls between your palms and flatten on bottom before placing on tray). Dehydrate for 5 hours. Keep refrigerated.

If desired, rewarm in the dehydrator for 30-60 minutes before serving.

Cooked version: Scoop the dough onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes.
