The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This is a simple raw chili recipe that can be whipped up in a flash. Optionally, you can add 1/2 teaspoon cumin if you have it in your pantry, but it's not necessary.

Re: the mixins, use finely chopped celery or finely chopped (or shredded) carrots (and/or finely chopped mushrooms work well too).

You can eat this chili on its own. Feel free to warm slightly in your dehydrator, although warming it is not necessary. (I don't bother warming it.)

This chili mixture also makes a nice salad topping. Plus, top with optional raw sour cream for yummy chili goodness! (In this picture I didn't take the time to make raw sour cream, but I did grind up cashews using a nut-grinder, which acts like parmesan cheese!)

PS: This recipe is dedicated to TRK member Rhinda! Her recent note inspired me to whip up this recipe this afternoon.

Yum!!! This was so good! I really enjoyed it. I didn't have celery so I used parsley instead and I wrapped it in romaine. Thank you very much. Your recipes are easy, tasteful and inspiring.

I used a pinch of cayenne pepper so you can barely taste it. But it has a very mild warming taste without being hot. I am not a spicy girl either. Laura-Jane I have to tell you I made this a few days ago and it was so delicious I have been craving it. I had it tonight for dinner and it was so delicious. Thank you for creating delicious, fast and easy recipes. You rock!

This is my favorite recipe I crave it all the time now! I am craving it now but am out of walnuts, could I substitute pecans?

Absolutely Carissa!!

Pecans are really the only nut that I would suggest substituting for walnuts (in this recipe, and in others). This is because they have a very similar texture and oil content - so they are quite interchangeable, although walnuts can sometimes be more bitter than pecans.

Does this have an overwhelming fresh tomato taste or does the sundried flavor mask it a bit? Fresh tomato may be the only vegetable I do not like. I can handle it if we'll incorporated and blended with other flavors I like. I love traditional vegetable chili though, so I'd love to try this!
Thanks for all your great recipes and communication here and on Twitter! You make this lifestyle so much easier to transition into!

Just a thought - were your sun-dried tomatoes purchased 'dry' or 'soaked in oil'? (soaked in oil makes a BIG difference. :-) )
