You never have to steam or stir fry your broccoli again after you try this yummy broccoli hemp tabbouleh recipe.

I’ve been on a bit of a raw kick lately! Raw food is amazing and so full of flavor, plus there are major health benefits to eating veggies in their true natural state.

Broccoli is a tough one and I’m sure a lot of you don’t like raw broccoli. I didn’t for a very long time unless it was smothered in vegan ranch. But then one day I left it sitting in lemon juice, olive oil, and sea salt for 15 minutes and it began to wilt. The same way I know how to soften kale and collard greens works for everything like cabbage, mushrooms, and now broccoli!

The baked falafel recipe has a traditional tabbouleh but you could definitely up the ante with this broccoli version or stuff it in the raw walnut meat tacos.
