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.

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? :)

Should I soak the walnuts for a better constituency or can I blend it dry?

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!

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.

Oh my, oh my... this is a good one! I have missed Mexican food recently but with recipe there is no reason to miss it any longer! One huge hit with me and my husband :) I added in some cumin, substituted the chili powder for cayenne powder, left out the celery but added in some steamed corn and edamane beans (so not 100% raw but I happy with that) and it was completely and utterly RawMaZing! I did sides of guacamole, a cashew nut sour cream and salad. A friend didn't make it round to our house this evening and boy did she miss out! Thank you!
