How To Make Raw Veggie Chili
- Vegetables: Prepare vegetables and combine all ingredients in large size bowl. Place 1/2 or so of the mix into a food processor and blend until pureed, as shown above.
- In a medium sized bowl, combine the puree with the remaining diced vegetables and toss well, as shown above.
- Nut Meat: Place the sliced mushrooms, walnuts, spices and tamari into the bowl of you food processor and pulse until crumbly (shown above). You don’t want to over blend or it will turn into a paste.
- Serve: Place the vegetable chili in individual serving bowls and top with nut meat, adding any additional garnishes you like on top.
Feel free to add/subtract any vegetable you wish. Get in as many as you can to really make this a well rounded garden chili recipe. Use as much or as little as you like of each ingredient.
How To Store Raw Chili
For best results, I recommend storing the vegetable mixture and nut meat separately. The vegetable mix will last 4 – 5 day, while the nut meat will stay fresh for up to 2 – 3 days. If you’re going to eat the chili within 2 days, it’s fine to mix it all together.
