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!

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!

Love it! I'm making it again today with more fresh tomatoes and maybe some water to create a broth. One of my daughters is a fabulous cook and sometimes raw foodie and she suggested that after I passed the recipe on to her.

Is there a substitute for walnuts if I wanted to make this a little lower fat?
Looks delicious.

Hi Kimberly - Great question. The walnuts definitely make or break the recipe. You need the oilyness of the walnuts so I don't want to suggest a substitution... How about you make a smaller batch as written? And eat less? :)

Any chance you have a raw curry vegetable recipe or lasagna recipe up your sleeve?

Thank you!

This may be a silly question, but do you use sundried tomatoes packed in oil or do you just use the dry ones?

Thanks! Love you recipes and love how you are so attentive to your readers!
