Spring has sprung, and I’m loving it!
The weather is perfect for hanging outdoors with friends and family, and when friends and family gather, we have to have good food in the mix. Since it was an impromptu gathering we scoured the fridge and pantry, kinda like a TV game show where you have to use only what you have available to create a meal.
Lucky for everyone, earlier I had made a batch of OMG awesome Roasted Tomato Chutney, this stuff is absolutely fantastico.
You can pair it with just about anything you want – Mixed it with soup, with a bowl of veggies, pasta salad, or simply on grilled toast, it makes a great appetizer.
We grilled some baby zucchini, red pepper and shitake mushrooms and got creative.
Some topped a bed of greens with grilled shitake and chutney, while the rest of us, me included, made sandwiches.
Load those grilled veggies with some Roasted Red Pepper Chutney and whatever else you like, and you will have yourself the most delectable, beautiful sandwich.
A beautiful work of art, don’t you agree!
