Mixed Nuts Chutney

This is one of my favorite dishes to make for the kids and adults alike. In this riff on peanut chutney, peanuts are replaced with almonds, walnuts and hemp seeds. What you end up with is a protein-packed, deliciously nutty dish. It’s a versatile chutney that’ll easily lend itself as a dip or spread.

Serving: With this dish, a little goes a long way and so while this may look feel like small quantity, it’ll easily serve 4


  1. Almond – 2 tbsps
  2. Walnuts – 2 tbsps
  3. Hemp Seeds – 1 tbsp
  4. Sliced onion – 1 small (about 1/3 cup)
