Cilantro Chutney

Cilantro Chutney is a staple in our home. It is a wonderful sauce to put on steamed vegetables as part of a “vitality bowl”, and it’s a perfect complement to a plant-based diet.

It also adds an Ayurvedic staple to your food. This recipe is light and easy to make with ingredients that you can find in most any grocery store. It’s also vegan friendly, oil free and gluten-free!

Cilantro is one of those herbs that can be pretty polarizing. Either you love it or hate it! So if you’re not sure what cilantro tastes like, this chutney will give you a taste of what fresh cilantro tastes like without the punch that many people dislike as other flavors are present.

Cilantro Chutney is an excellent sauce to use on steamed veggie vitality bowls. All you need is a bowl of cooked vegetables and you can create a delicious dish. It is surprisingly easy to make, with just a few simple ingredients.

    5 stars
    Made this mostly as directed – subbed parsley for some of the mint and lemon for the lime, and it tasted phenomenal! Easy to make and loved by everyone in our home. I will make this again as written with the lime and full cup of mint. Thank you for sharing this one with us!

    Can you freeze this?

    • Yes! It will generally last well in the freezer so we make bigger batches sometimes. It will lose the bright green color but the flavor will remain. Also it is a great idea to add the ice cubes into soups, stir frys or steamed veggies as quick and easy way to add flavor.
