Great Ways to Use Chutney
Use It as a Dip or Sandwich Spread
Chutney can be made with sweet fruits, tomatoes, herbs or vegetables, which means it may be sweet, sour, spicy, savory or herbal. This makes it a pretty versatile dip or ingredient in spreads like hummus and vegan aioli. Try these Indian-inspired vegan samosas with cilantro or mango chutney, or use your favorite chutney as a sandwich spread.
Use It in Drinks
You may not think of reaching for chutney when you're mixing up mocktails or any of your go-to beverage recipes, but you sure can. Choose a chutney with ingredients that will work with the flavors in your drink—an herb-based chutney would blend nicely with something summery like strawberry lemonade.
Eat Pancakes with It
A fruit chutney would be perfect for vegan pancakes, waffles, oatmeal or any other breakfast you'd enjoy with sweet toppings. If you have a recipe for applesauce pancakes (like in this video), feel free to swap out the applesauce for apple chutney.
