    Perfect, I’ve been looking for more raw meals because I tend to crave raw things when the weather gets warm, and I still have a butternut squash that needs to get eaten, but I haven’t felt like cooked butternut.
    And I finally finished that Silk Almond Milk, so I should be making a fresh batch either tonight or tomorrow! I can’t wait to try my new bag!

    Holy moly. HOLY MOLY. This is amazing! I had no idea you can eat butternuts raw (though sadly, I don’t think my food processor is up to that. *Ahem*, Amber, my vitamix? :D). Seriously applaud-worthy. You amaze me. Holy moly.

    While I can’t say that the “chili” appeals to my taste buds, I think the squash “rice” looks simply amazing. I think I found a new side dish for fish taco night!!

    Now that’s dedication! Seems like a lot of work for a bowl of chili, but I don’t doubt that it’s utterly delicious. Sure looks good!

    this looks amazing! i love how much protein it has too 🙂

    Definitely an interesting recipe. I like the red pepper/corn salsa a lot. Might have to try that out.

    wow Amber, you’ve got my attention here! We are expecting a lot of heat and a lot of houseguests this coming summer here in Lebanon and I would love to try this dish on them (they are all health nuts, from England and Denmark)
    I will keep you posted !

    ani should use this as a testamonial..holy crap girl. it all looks amazing

    i make my own raw taco nut meat and have made cashew cheeze before (actually i start with that to make cheezcake, different seasoning blends though, clearly!) but then the salsa and the rice. yes, a ton of work but it does look amazing!

    McKella—It’s so much easier to eat light in the summer, don’t you think? Can’t wait to see your almond milk!

    Aussie-Hannah—Aww, you and your flattery! You never fail to put a smile on my face 😀

    Hillary—If you like gazpacho, I think you’d like the chilly chili. But let me know if you try the “rice”!

    Bittersweet-Hannah—Labor of love, what can I say? :]

    Fit&40—Yeah! It does have great protein content for a raw meal, proving once again that nuts = awesome 😛

    Eric—The salsa was actually my favorite part, I think; nice ‘n crunchy.

    tasteofbeirut—This dish is particularly great in the heat. I can’t wait to hear if you try it, and if the Northern European health nuts enjoy it!

    Averie—Aw, thank you! How awesome would that be if Ani linked to me? Hehe. Speaking of Ani and raw cheezecake, I made one of hers recently (also cashew-based) and will be posting it soon :]

    I’m making the rice tomorrow! Hardly a raw, vegan, or vegetarian meal because it’s going to be a side for steak tacos….but the kids and I are pretty excited about it!

  12. Amber Shea

    Hillary—Haha, I'm always a fan of irony, so that's great! Lemme know how it turns out.

  13. Hillary

    It turned out great! I added some red onion and green chilis, and tweaked a few other things to accomodate my kiddos' taste buds, but it made a fantastic, refreshing side for the tacos. It's posted on my blog 😀

  14. Amber Shea

    Yay! So happy to hear it was a success. I bet the arugula-cilantro mix was tasty indeed, and the green chiles are a nice touch too.

    Made the squash rice tonight. Fantastic! so simple, and satisfying.
