Prep Time10 mins
Total Time55 mins
Course: Ferment, Main Dish, Snacks
Cuisine: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Picnic, Vegan / Plantbased
Servings: 15 patties


  • 1 + 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1/4 heaping cup beet kraut I used Cleveland Kraut, feel free to use any kraut of your choosing
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • Salt + Pepper to taste


  • In a bowl soak 1 cup sunflower seeds for 15 minutes
  • While the sunflower seeds are soaking, wash and destem the parsley. Then roughly chop it
  • After sunflower seeds have soaked, drain and place in a food processor
  • Process sunflower seeds on high until a rough paste forms
  • Once a rough paste forms, add in kraut, parsley, and tahini until dough forms If dough is too wet add in more sunflower seeds
  • Once done, mix in salt and pepper to taste (if needed)
  • Roll falafel dough into balls/patties and store in fridge to sit for at least 30 minutes before enjoying!


This recipe is easily customizable! If you don't have sunflower seeds feel free to explore with other mild nuts or seeds (cashews maybe). You also might have success with using chickpeas instead of sunflower seeds, I just had sunflower seeds on hand when I made this.
