Onion chutney might sound like it takes all day to make but I’m happy to tell you it takes no more than an hour and a bit and for most of that you can twiddle your thumbs. You also need very few ingredients top make something utterly delicious. That is my favourite sequence of events in life! For the chutney all you need is red onions, white balsamic vinegar, soft brown sugar, salt and some patience.

The finished onion chutney makes a delicious component of any vegan holiday cheese board you’re thinking of making. Our favourite combo is with a smokey aged cashew cheese that we treat ourselves to on special occasions. We also really enjoy these onions in our burgers. It adds a yummy sweetness as well as tanginess that goes great against a savoury burger patty. Other than that you can dollop it pretty much anywhere for a delicious sweet onion touch. Enjoy!
