Cranberry Apple Chutney – Candy Coated Culinista

Sometimes I wonder how vegetarians get through the holidays like, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter where the main focus is a big piece of protein. This is also the time where there probably is the most side dish options thank can build up a full meal, but still center stage is well let’s face it that protein. I saw this recipe in a Longos in-store magazine and altered it from being non-vegetarian to vegetarian. To me there is no reason why the sides can’t at least be all meat and animal by products free right.

Yield/Serving: 6- 8
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 20 min.
Difficulty level is: Easy

Slightly altered from Longos Experience

Ingredients
• 1 tbsp vegetable margarine
• 1 large apple, peeled and chopped
• ¼ cup red onion, chopped
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
• 1/2 cup vegetable broth
• 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
• 1 tbsp cider vinegar
• Sea salt, to taste
• Black pepper, to taste
• Zest from one orange, fresh

Assembly
1. Over medium-high heat melt butter in a saucepan.
2. Add in apples and onions and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes until golden.
3. Add in the cranberries, garlic, broth, maple syrup, cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
4. Bring mixture to a simmer until slightly thickened, 7 to 8 minutes.
5. Grate in orange zest
6. Serve.

Please Enjoy

My thoughts
This is was a very delicious cranberry sauce. I found it to taste more savoury than the other cranberry sauces I have had around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
