Raw Chili

This is a pic of my incredibly hot raw chili that I made at work. I was inspired by Luke's spicy vegetarian cooked chili.. the thing is the actual chili powder we used for both was an extra hot one. I had a big bowl of the raw one yesterday for lunch and it literally made me break out in a sweat! I still have to experiment to see how much regular chili powder to use ..I am guessing for the recipe here, use your own judgment on that one.

I'm really happy with this recipe.. really enjoyed it! Hope you do too!!!

Raw Chili

3 large tomatoes (pref really delicious organic local ones!) - chopped
1/2 red pepper - chopped
1 celery stalk - chopped
1 onion - chopped
2 garlic cloves - minced
3-4 mushrooms - chopped
4-5 flat leaf parsley stalks - chopped
1 T miso
2t chili powder
1 t oregano & salt
1/2 t basil, cumin and marjoram
1/4 t curry and turmeric
dash black pepper and cayenne

Mix together in a bowl. remove about 1/3 of the mixture to a blender or food processor and add 1/2 avocado and another tomato and puree.
Bend puree back into bowl of rest of chili and add:
other 1/2 avocado chopped small
1 1/2 c sprouted bean mix

- I used Mumm's bean mix (we sell these at work) and removed the bigger beans - most of the garbanzos and Peas - and using mostly adzuki beans and lentils.

ps. This is a pic of another experiment going on in my kitchen at home.. but I think the veggies were sliced too thin. I got the spice mixture down - they tasted delicious but shrunk in size.

I used sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchinis, thin white eggplant & parsnips.

The next setting on my mandolin seemed too cut the veggies too thick. Maybe I'll try with the food processor slicer.. will let you know if I get it down.

Next up though are Raw cookies.. we've been selling them at work again. and we're out. ..maybe tonight.

I finished my ho'oponopono book, it was great and will post some thoughts on it tomorrow.
Am starting my Science & the Akashic field book by E. Laszlo - today.

Tomorrow I am working after work for Erika Wolfe (Power of Raw) who is hosting Brain Clement from the Hippocrates Health Inst. in Florida.

and on Sunday we have a workshop at work with Dorit - The Sacred Art of Eating. That will be wonderful.. I love Dorit. Busy weekend!!

To overcome our problem with the veggies shrinking, I still cut them thin, but piled them together, covering the sheet and then going back and putting chips between chips, if you know what I mean. That way, even though they shrunk, there was a solid sheet that you could break apart when it was finished. They were very good, the closest thing to crunchy chips we found. When I cut them thicker, they never got crispy. The look lovely. I'm sure they were delicious.

Thanks Connie. Appreciate the suggestion. They were really delicious. Too delicious!!!
Even though I used a quality olive oil & seasonings.. I still don't like to eat too much oil ..not to mention that they seem to be a bit addictive.
Mmm.. just thinking about them!!!

I woke up this morning and felt like starting a cleanse.. so maybe I am going to try them again after this period - in a week or two.

Thanks!!! x
