RAW Spicy Vegetable Chili

I love Chili. I love all kinds of Chili, but this one here is RAW, very nutrient dense and crazy flavor. This is a healing chili. It’s loaded with lots of anti inflammatory spices like cumin, garlic, chili powder, cinnamon and smoked paprika.

In my most Raw chili recipes you will find nuts as the substitute for meat, but I can tend to have issues with nuts so I used organic oat groats and organic gluten free oatmeal. You are more than welcome to use 1 1/2 cups of walnuts, almonds or cashews, but walnuts make a better meat substitute I think.

Make this chili when you need some TLC from the cold months. It will keep your immunity up and running throughout the winter months. Remember to Set the Table with Love.

Chili Sauce

1 cup of distilled water

1/2 cup of red bell peppers, seeded and diced

4 sundried tomatoes ( dried, no oil)

2 tbsp orange juice

2 tbsp  raisins

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp sea salt

1 small garlic clove

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp ancho chili powder

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Adjust seasonings according to your taste.  If the chili is too thick just add a little water at a time.

Meat

1 cup of oat groats and 1/2 cup of gluten free oatmeal

2 tbsp raisins

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp olive oil

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 cup distilled water

Add all the dry ingredient, raisins and  olive oil to a food processor and blend until slightly combined. Add the water a little at a time, pulse  to allow the oats to bind into chunks.  I like mines a little chunky so you can see texture in the chili.

Vegetables

You could diced up any vegetables you loved in this dish.

1 cup of zucchini ( diced)

1 cup of yellow squash ( diced)

1 cup  of corn kernels

1/4 cup of white onions

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix. Add sauce and oat mixture and stir into combined.

I added avocado, onions and peppers on top of mines. Enjoy.
