So I bought this jar of apple chutney just because it looked nice and I wanted to buy something, and so far I have eaten it with some fermented soy cheese on top of ww bread - it's good, but I am running out of the cheese and I still have half a jar of chutney.

What do I eat it with? Chutney is so out of my normal cuisine that I have no clue what to do with it.

Thanks!

I love chutney! I have it with crackers, or pittas, it goes well in a pitta with salad and falafel! Or if you have burgers, smear some on top of that. Or just have it as a snack...I will admit to sitting dipping breadsticks or carrots into chutney. Like salsa.

You could treat it as the Indians do, and have it with a spicy curry, (how spicy is obviously up to you), naan/roti and rice. I love mango chutney that way I'm sure apple will be just as tasty.

Yep, I would do pretty much what vixki suggested. Use it as a spread on other sandwiches/burgers or to dip crackers or pitas in. Yum yum yum yum. I bet apple chutney would go great with savory lentil burgers or something like that.

This is weird but I like it as a salad dressing.

I don't have much chutney experience, but I do know that tempeh and fruit go great together. So maybe smear it on tempeh before baking, dip baked or fried tempeh sticks in it, or spread it on a tempeh sandwich.

Put it in a sandwich, with peanut butter and salad. Put that in your mouth!

I personally don't like fruit chutneys with curries. Instead, I'd make a wrap with tonnes of veggies and avocado, a bit of chutney, and maybe even another spread (mayo? olive tapenade? hummus?). It's also nice on a tapas plate with crackers, olives, pickled veggies, nice breads, and the like.

wrap it in puff pastry (with some veggie or cashew cream cheese) or serve it as a side with some herby seitan and rice?

Add it to hot rice with some earth balance.
Mix it with cream cheese and spread on bagels.

I used to have a recipe for a cold rice salad that used chutney in the dressing. Totally forgot about it till this thread. It was so yummy. I think it had raisins and maybe some tofu, nuts, and green onions.

I have apple chutney too! I tried it on my dahl and it was, sadly, gross, but I've been making delicious sandwiches. My favorite is homemade baked tofu (miso-tamari-lime) on whole grain bread with chutney, avocado, and butter lettuce.
