My mom is coming to visit and I want to "wow" her with some yummy raw foods. I found the following recipe for Un "Meatloaf" in an old post, which I thought could be used for meat balls, but I'm not sure:
1C sunflower seeds
Filtered water for soaking seeds and almonds
2 cloves garlic
1/2 C chopped parsley
1/2 C chopped celery
1C chopped red bell pepper
1C marinated portobelo(optional)
1Tbl chopped onion
2 Tbl rosemary
1 Tbl tarragon
1 Tbl jalapeno
1 Tsp cumin
Does anyone have a recipe that rawks?

Here's one I got off of this web site:
By Marlene Glickman
1 cup Brazil Nuts (soaked 4 hours and rinsed)
1 cup sunflower seeds (soaked overnight and rinsed)
½ a medium onion
1 Tbsp Nama Shoyu
1 Tbsp. Miso
1 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
2 Tbsp fresh sage
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary
2-3 cloves garlic
Finely chop the Brazil nuts in a food processor, set them aside
Blend all the remaining ingredients except the sunflower seeds in the food processor until finely chopped, then add the sunflower seeds and process until it makes a pate. Mix this with the brazil nuts. If you really want them to be like meatballs make patties and dehydrate them for a few hours until slightly crusty. Otherwise enjoy like a pate.

Pris if you go with that recipe, I would switch the tarragon to basil and oregano for a more Italian meatball sort of vibe. There was an old episode of Everyone loves Raymond where Ray's mother switched the basil in Ray's wife's house to tarragon to make her meatballs taste bad. Your recipe sounds pretty good otherwise.
Another great recipe which might be a good start for the base is maraw's burgers, at www.therawtable.com under recipes.

LOL at that episode. I remember that one and had a good laugh. I can't believe you remember it down to the herb! I will never use tarragon in a mock meat recipe now!

I've used Alissa's Falafal recipe and varied the seasonings to make meat balls. I really like these either way they are made and they have a good consistency to have with veggie pasta and marinara.
