So, tonight, I decided to make it.
It turned out SUPERB!!
I wanted to try Kumato Tomatoes, just because they seem
ed interesting, and they were really delicious.
So I used 5 Kumato Tomatoes in the recipe, and one vine ripe tomato.
Changes I made to the recipe:
- I added fresh cilantro and basil.
- when I pureed the half of the ingredients, I added a little bit of filtered water, then pureed some more.. the reason is because the "juice" was very thick. Then I just added the puree back to the rest.
- After I blended I added 2 chopped green onions. yum.
- I did NOT make the cashew kream. I only added a little bit of taco nut meat
- I did use any celery
It was DELICIOUS!
I added up the ingredients for the chili part, which was about 300 calories.. The chili makes about 3 bowls for me, and I ate about 2/3 of what I made.
The taco nut meat makes about a cup of "meat" and that is about 900 calories. I only used about a tablespoon of that into my chili.
