Recipe: Beetroot Chutney

After sharing my very simple but very delicious dinner the other day on my insta’, I received a few messages about the recipe for my Beetroot Chutney (Home Front Solution #40) and thought the best way to share the love would be adding it on here.

It comes from the very talented Monika from Everyday Healthy Recipes and I recommend having a gander at the rest of her site as she has so many other nice recipes to get your mouth watering.

  • To the pot add the vinegar, apple juice, sugar, fresh ginger, spices and seasoning. Cook for a minute until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture starts bubbling up.
  • Add the diced beetroot, apple and onion, stir, cover and simmer for about 40 minutes, until the beetroot is tender but still has some crunch, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in the soy sauce and place one third of the mixture in a small food processor. Pulse a few times to break up the larger pieces (do not puree completely).
  • Place the mixture back in the pot, stir in and set aside to cool completely.  Spoon the chutney into a jar and refrigerate (for up to 2 weeks).
