Raw Nut Loaf

I found this recipe at The Eazy Vegan and modified it only slightly.  I really enjoyed it and would make it again if I had access to flaxseed.  My momski sent it to me from home when I did my detox a while back.  It reminded me of meatloaf from childhood which I ate with ketchup and that is exactly how i dressed this baby.

Raw Nut Loaf

1/2 c. Almonds and cashews (combined)
1/2 c. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds (combined)
1 1/2 c. Millet flax seed
1/2 c. Chopped onion
1 c. Shredded carrot
1 c. Water*
4 Cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp. Herbs de province
1 tsp. Sea salt
1 tsp. Rosemary

Grind nuts and seeds in a blender.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding water last.  It should form a sticky mound.  Take said sticky mound and press into a loaf pan or any kind of mold you want really.  Slice and serve.  Easy peasy.

*The original recipe calls for celery j (omit water and salt if celery j equipped).



Hi. I know this is an old post, but found it when looking for raw food recipes. This one sounds tasty. I don't want to sound too dumb, but what is celery j? Is it celery juice? BTW, I enjoyed reading your blog and love Korean food, when I can find a vegan recipe. Thanks.

Hi there, I just came across your recipe doing a search for a raw nut loaf. 3 questions re: Raw Nut Loaf. Do you soak nuts and seeds? Is Millet and flax seed two separate things? If you use carrot juice for liquid does loaf taste sweeter? Thanks.

hi gullah gal...
the nuts and seeds do not get soaked, they blend up nice and easy and the powderiness of them makes less mess. Millet and flax are seperate but that is all i could purchase at the time, when i make it now i just use flax seed. And I think carrot juice would be sweeter but i often use a sweeter juice and still love it. sometimes i will ass a bit of salt and extra salt to counter it. Hope that helps, let me know if you like it.
