Burst Redcurrant with fleshy sweet Red Onion lightly cooked with a piquant citrus-like juniper berry clove relish served in a hot fiery cayenne sugary vinegar syrup.
Quaff on some soft silky popping appetizer that will make you zing to climax. And, voice.
This will crash any belief that vegan food can’t be simple to rustle up.
- When you’re in a frenzy with a last-minute dinner party and want canapes that will look and taste the biz
- When you’re wanting a light snack and can’t be bothered to spend more than 5-mins fixing a dish. Serve with vegan cream cheese and hey presto
- When you’ve got a soiree organised and want a dish with plenty of pizzazz
Redcurrant and Red Onion Relish was inspired as a contrast to hot Indian food when younger. And, wanting a contrasting sweet-sour spicy condiment.
Incredibly easy to put together and have in reserve in the fridge until the right moment pops up.
Redcurrant and Red Onion Relish is a condiment, vegan and paleo.
