Best Raw Chili Ever… 

Print Friendly 

Description:
So, now for the “piece de resistance”… a delicious wintertime raw recipe guaranteed to keep your body furnace stoked. Note the liberal use of heating herbs!
Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein.







Ingredients:
1 – cup kidney beans

2 ¼ - cups chopped fresh tomatoes
¼ - cup soaked sun dried tomatoes
2/3 – cup chopped celery
½ - cup chopped sweet onion
1 – cup chopped green pepper
1 – slice jalapeno
1 – cup cilantro
¾ - tsp sea salt
2 – tsp. chili powder
1 – tsp paprika
1/8 – tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ - tsp coriander
1 tbls. – honey

2 cups finely chopped zucchini



Directions:
1 – cup kidney beans (sprouted)…
soak 1 cup kidney beans in water overnight, drain & rinse. Continue to drain and rinse 2 x’s a day for 2-3 days until little tails start to show. You can either add the sprouted beans directly to the following base recipe or cheat a bit and slow cook your sprouted beans at the lowest temperature of your crock pot until tender. Either way,a sprouted bean has much more nutrition in it than a dry bean. Once a bean is sprouted it becomes living and growing and is no longer in its dormant state.


Vegetable Chili Base…

Blend all the above ingredients for the base, including the soaking water for the sun dried tomatoes, in your food processor or blender and puree.

Combine puree with your sprouted beans and add approximately 2 cups finely chopped zucchini, and ¼ cup finely chopped sweet onion for some added crunch and chunkiness. If you want extra extra chunky chili, don’t process the Vegetable Chili Base, just use as is.



Notes: You simply can’t have only one serving of this…it’s too good!

Wellness Tip
Exercise Cool Down
Fitness experts recommend cooling down after a moderate to high intensity exercise session. This prevents sudden pooling of blood in the muscles. Slowly cooling down also prevents sudden drops in blood pressure that can lead to dizziness and falls. During the last 3-5 minutes of your workout, gradually decrease the exercise intensity. Gently approach your resting state before coming to a complete stop.
