Not so long ago, I was raving about Herbavoracious’ super-delicious (un-raw) vegan chili to cater to my cooked food cravings… well now I’m happy to say I can rave about a raw vegan chili recipe to the same extent – Matthew Kenney has done it again!! It has a great texture, doesn’t require beans and tastes like chili! When I gave it to my boyfriend to try he really liked it but didn’t realize I said it was raw, so commented that it was cold and asked if he could heat it up – funny :)
Apparently this recipe required ‘exhaustive experimentation’ so I was careful not to deviate on my first attempt (save for halving the recipe below), which took a lot more restraint than I’m used to! So get your measuring spoons out people and get in to this goodness!
Matt suggests warming it in the dehydrator prior to serving, which I did last night for dinner – about 30 mins at 105° seemed to work well. Today I took it to work for lunch and simply left it on my desk all morning and had it a room temperature on my flax seed crackers – it was delish. I think it’s my new staple snack – yay!!
Also think about pairing it with Matthew’s sour cream – it’s delish!

This looks excellent! I’d like to try it for a raw potluck this weekend. How many servings would you say it is?
That’s exciting! Let me know how it goes :)
It’s hard to say how many servings it is but if you use it as a ‘dip’ I would think it would be ok for up to 8 people…
This was awesome. Someone made it for a potluck and gave out the recipe. Incredible…and I also eat meat (transitioning), but this dish rocks!
I’m the one who made it for the potluck! It was absolutely incredible. So vibrant! More recipes like this, please! I actually don’t think the sour cream added much to it other than to give it a pretty white dollop on top.
Oh hi Ellen….again, great job…it was great

I tried this recipe a couple days ago. LOVED IT! I found the sour cream added a tasty variety to any bite. Thank you.
Yay! I’m so happy to hear that Suzanne :) Thank you for sharing. Wish I could take the credit for this one, it’s so good.
