Raisin Chutney

I lived in Vancouver in 2010.  In the last two weeks before I left I stumbled across Gorilla Food on Richards Street, a restaurant providing organic,vegan and raw living foods.  I returned a number of times before I left, desperately trying to get my fix before I had to leave. It was a cool place to hang out and the food was delicious, in particular their raisin chutney.

After a search on the web I was glad to see they have now opened a second restaurant and continue to feed the hungry mouths of Vancouverites on Richards.  I was even happier to find out the chef, Aaron Ash has released a raw cookbook which includes their Raisin Chutney – five ingredients and two simple steps. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated but totally delicious. Enjoy.


Step 1: Soak raisins in water and apple cider vinegar for 1 to 4 hours.
Step 2: In the food processor, with the s-blade, process all ingredients into a puree.
