Kibbeh Nayyeh (Raw Kibbeh)

What you need: 

1 cup raw brazil nuts
1 cup raw peanuts
Pinch salt, to taste (optional)
1 teaspoon pepper plus extra, to garnish
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon mint
1 mint sprig, for garnish
1/2 cabbage, shredded and tossed in olive oil

What you do: 

1) Combine nuts in the food processor and process until the mix forms a light fluff. Add salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, cinnamon, onion, olive oil, and mint. Pulse until uniformly mixed and a moldable dough forms.
2) Form kibbeh into football-shaped balls, and dehydrate for up to 8 hours or until the kibbeh do not crumble apart and can hold their shape well.
3) Serve over a bed of the cabbage tossed in olive oil. Drizzle with my remoulade sauce once plated.

sure! here is the recipe:


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

    1/4 cup eco mayo
    1/2 cup pure water, or as needed
    1 tablespoon chives
    1tablespoon tarragon
    1/2 tablespoon turmeric
    1 to 2 pickles, finely chopped
    Salt, to taste (optional)


1) Combine ingredients in the food processor and process until creamy.

Serve with kibbeh, 'crabcakes', or as a slaw dressing!  Keep refrigerated in a sealed container.

Source of recipe: I created this recipe out of a need for a raw dressing for entrees.  It's simple, healthy, and delicious!  I did not add salt to my remoulade, but a pinch or two may be what adds that extra kick for you!

*the eco mayo recipe is listed under raw dressings/ condiments i believe! :)


I want to try this, but I can't find the remoulade sauce recipe--can you recap it here?
