Mint and Peanut Tapenade

Peanut and Mint Chutney 020
Tapenade, I hope that’s the right word. Being Mauritian I’d usually call this mint and peanut tapenade a chutney but it just didn’t seem to fit this time, it just needed to be shown off. It’s such a humble and delicious thing that I would relish any time. As a spread on bread, crackers or anything. However I made this today with the intention of it being an accompaniment to Dhal. This is how it’s served back home. It was so nice but I think I enjoyed it more as a snack spread on a rye cracker. I reckon I’ll be having a dollop of this on just about everything I eat for the next couple of days.
