Tomato and aubergine chutney

If you follow on instagram you saw my organic tomato post. I really enjoyed those tomatoes, I need to get more. After my post @amkakenya suggested I make some tomato chutney. I  looked online for recipes and this is the first one I found for which I had most of the ingredients.


I adjusted the quantities a bit and substituted the red wine vinegar with balsamic vinegar. I did a bit of research and learned it would be a good substitute. More info on that here. It’s always nice when you have a substitute.

The recipe notes said that it would make a great a great pasta sauce so this became a quick dinner too.  

So for the ingredients, I used
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 very large onion
3 tomatoes
3 grated cloves of garlic
1 whole medium sized aubergine
1 teaspoon paprika
dash of cayenne pepper instead of black pepper
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 level tablespoon brown sugar
salt to taste

the ingredents
dice up the onions, tomatoes, aubergine and grate the garlic
start with the olive oil and onions on low heat, when the onions soften add the aubergine
add tomatoes and garlic
add tomatoes and garlic after a couple of good stirs, together with the remaining ingredients
this is when it was done, nice and fresh veggie mix
does not take long to cook at all, this is when it was done, nice and fresh veggie mix

I left it in a little longer, don’t know why,… one of those moments I guess, so by the time I was putting it on the pasta it looked like mush, couldn’t tell the tomatoes from the eggplant! (-_-)

but it was still yummy. I liked the flavours a lot.

This recipe didn’t use as many tomatoes as I would have liked, so I searched some more,… stay tuned for what I found next! (^_^)
