Easy Holiday Vegan Nut Balls

December 22, 2016 — 2 Comments

The holidays can be a very stressful time for many people.  Recently, I created a simple recipe that helped ease the anxiety of trying to determine what to bring to a holiday party or potluck. These nut balls are very easy to make, and it takes only about 10 minutes. They can be served as an appetizer or a dessert. They are delicious!

For a raw vegan version of this recipe, soak the walnuts for 8 hours and then dry them in a dehydrator overnight.

Ingredients:

2 cups walnuts (soaked and dried for a raw vegan version)

¼ cup dates, pitted and soaked

¼ cup shredded coconut or coconut flakes

2 Tbsp. agave nectar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Process:

  1. Optional: Soak walnuts overnight (about 8 hours) for a raw vegan version. Dry in dehydrator.
  2. Grind walnuts in a food processor until fine.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the coconut and blend until creamy.
  4. Form mixture into small balls.
  5. Place coconut into a large jar. Add one or two balls at a time into jar and shake until the coconut sticks to the nut balls.
  6. Refrigerate until serving.

RawVegan Spaghetti

Spaghetti was one of my favorite foods as a child growing up with an Italian mother, and as a result, I learned to make delicious pasta sauce! As a healthier alternative, here is a raw vegan version of spaghetti – healthy and delicious! It is best to use organic tomatoes for this because you cannot beat their natural, flavorful taste!

Equipment:

Raw Spiralizer (Wondering what a “spiralizer” is? Click here.)

Ingredients:

4 green zucchini

2 medium tomatoes, chopped

1/8 cup walnuts, chopped

1/4 cup onion, chopped

1 small carrot, chopped

1/2 red pepper, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup parsley, minced

1 T olive oil

Red pepper and salt to taste

Green olives, chopped (optional)

Process:

Use the spiralizer and make spaghetti noodles with the zucchini. Mix with all other ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!
