Truly Raw Peanut & Corn Chowder, a Recipe from Dorit’s Book, ‘Celebrating Our Raw Nature – Plant-Based Living Cuisine’

Peanut & Corn Chowder – A Raw Food Dish from Chef Dorit

Makes approximately six servings

I love this recipe because I find that even those totally committed to cooked foods actually relish it in a way that is reminiscent of their favorite cooked fare. In the autumn months, this can also be warmed in a dehydrator or a slow cooker to allow the warming quality of the recipe to be fully savored.

  • 1 quart celery juice, freshly made
  • 1 cup truly raw peanuts
  • 1 11 oz cup raw corn kernels
  • 3 tbsp hemp seed oil
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup truly raw peanuts, chopped
  • 1 bunch chives, chopped
  • Dash of Hawaiian or Portuguese Sea Salt to taste (available from Selina’s Salts)
  • Dash of cayenne pepper to taste

Add all the ingredients, except for the chopped peanuts and chives, into a very powerful blender. Mix well for a smooth chowder, or very little for a thick chowder. Chill the chowder for about an hour. Just before serving in (chilled) bowls, add the chopped peanuts and chives.

For a slightly sweeter version, substitute 1 quart of freshly made apple juice for the celery juice.

Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.
