Tomato Chutney Is a Tasty Addition for Your Meals and Easy to Make

This tasty tomato chutney is a great healthy condiment for a curry meal and it is so easy to prepare. The red of Tomatoes is what makes them full of health benefits, even when you are enjoying them as a chutney or tomato sauce. 

Tomatoes are fat-burning, help prevent cancer, and are a very heart-healthy food.

The common apple has uncommonly huge health benefits..Your mom didn’t use the term superfood but she knew about apples.

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” was the first nutritional advice I and many children heard from their moms.  For this reason, we call them “the first superfood.”  The apples pair very well with the tomatoes in this chutney.

Onions add a great flavor to the tomato chutney. WHO recognizes that Onions help relieve symptoms such as coughs, congestion asthma, and respiratory infections. Onions are full of protective phytonutrients, vitamins, trace minerals, quercetin (an important flavonoid), chromium, and unique anti-inflammatory nutrients.

I love adding garlic to this tomato chutney. To get the most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking.  Waiting for 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form.  If you do not let it sit, allicin is never formed, so it is worth the wait. Add some garlic to your soups, stews, and salad dressing recipes to lower high cholesterol.  Sometimes it is easier to use some Organic Freeze Dried Garlic so no chopping and peeling. 

Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.honey benefits

Honey is so good for you that we have included it in our list of superfoods that should be in your kitchen right now. Honey helps prevents cancer and heart disease reduces ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders as well as reducing cough and throat irritation. It is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and increases athletic performance.  Honey is a probiotic and helps to heal wounds and burns while strengthening the immune system.

As I don’t use sugar for my cooking I often use stevia which is the healthy option and I have added some to this tomato chutney recipe.  The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. So all you need in this olive oil lemon juice salad dressing is a few drops. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based.  Liquid forms will be less processed.  Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.

When we think of cinnamon we usually imagine delicious pastries or a hot drink but cinnamon is also full of health benefits.  These benefits are backed by valid scientific research. It is helpful from lowering “bad” HDL cholesterol levels to lowering blood sugar levels.
