The Doubt of Future Foes.

by Elizabeth I, Queen of England

The doubt of future foes exiles my present joy,

And wit me warns to shun such snares as threaten mine annoy;

My Tomato Chutney

The Veggy Side Of Me


I’m a huge fan of tomatoes, I absolutely love them but I ate a lot of sorbets for dinner lately and my stock of tomatoes was fading…
In order not to waste them I decided to prepare something a bit different, that my granny really (really) liked: a tomato chutney! I used to eat it on grilled cheese before but even on some vegan cheddar is absolutely gorgeous!

Reading here and there….What is a chutney? Chutneys originated in Northern India and were initially brought back to England and France as luxury goods in the eighteenth century and then later adapted.
