Kibbeh Nayyeh (Raw Kibbeh)
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
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.
