Unbelievable Chili (Raw Foods)

"From Alive in 5 by Angela Elliot. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks yummy! Posted for the Veg*n Recipe Swap. (I think I've read that the Himalayan and Celtic salts used in many Raw Recipes are a bit less "salty" than regular table salt, so I would salt with caution and to taste.)"

    So good...I played with the recipe slightly (as I always do with both any kind of chili and with any raw recipe- so this was double the fun-lol) I got some ideas from other raw chili recipes I've come across and just threw them in too at whims...most notable in my adventure was the addition of a bit of cacao powder, shrooms (LOTS), nutmeg,cinnamon, garlic (LOTS)...a bit of agave...some red hot pepper flakes (from my dehydrated garden peppers :) )ummmmm some onion and prob. more... :)... and I mixed some walnuts in as well as the almonds...I used all the other suggested spices and ingredients but maybe was a bit more heavy handed about it 'cause I made about a batch and a half or more and used a food processor (taste, mix and pulse method)...oh the tomatoes I used were cherry ...some things I left chopped rough and other things I processed the heckle out of then hand mixing last bits for texture contrasts...it was a wonderful focal point of my New Years '09 feast (and like all chili super yummy leftovers too!!!)..served with raw crackers (my own wheat/rye and seed mix) and a heaping bowl of lentil and alfalfa sprouts to top sammies or bowls with...I liked this recipe because I think it was more approachable than a lot of raw chillies {{which is how both chili and raw food should be IMHO -lol :) }} ...super yum...easy and FUN and happiest Happy New Year time... :)

    This was absolutely delicious and very easy to make. I mad a few changes by adding garlic (lots, I like garlic) and halving the avocado and nuts to make it a little more low cal. Also, I sub'd cashews for almonds because that's what I had on hand. I'm new to raw food cooking and wish I knew more recipes like this rather than the complex ones I find in my raw cookbooks.

    This was fun to try, easy to make, delicious, and healthy! The only changes I made were to add a clove of garlic and to use a whole jalapeno. It's good to know that raw food isn't all salads and fruits. This made a hearty meal with some Go Raw brand flax crackers. Thanks for posting. Made as a recipenap for Veg*an Swap, June 2010

    Made this but with a couple of adjustments ~ I only used 2 teaspoons of chili powder & ditto for the cumin! Was gonna cut back on the jalapeno but then didn't & used the amount indicated! We love our chili, & this one fits right in there & will be a great new recipe for me to try on several vegan friends! Thanks for sharing this very nice keeper!

    Bold sassy flavors! Excellent in a Romaine Lettuce "Taco" or on tortilla chips. DH and I LOVED this. Although I might 'play' with the ingredients next time i make this (and there will definitely be a next time!) it is flawless as written. Thank you mliss29, for posting!
