    Default fresh mint recipes

    mint isnt a native here, but ive found a place to buy fresh cut leaves instead of relying on a plant tht struggles to survive when its too wet ths season here. that said, my few grams of mint leaves is so precious i'm looking for (again) simple recipes i can do soon before the leaves wilt n be wasted-). any u have tried aside from teas?

    Hmmm. You can add it to salads

    Found a website that suggests making ice cubes with mint leaves in them

    Some cultures add it to savoury food. I found a recipe, but the website made my browser crash if you don't get any tips here, try googling fresh peppermint recipes or something

    Mint chutney is awesome, kind of like a dipping sauce/spread you can use for fried breads and things...

    not to mention it also makes your mouth feel like you just gargled with mouthwash FRESH!

    I eat it with fried flat breads/ with rice flour type cakes (what we call here idli)

    Idli Recipes and Dosa Recipes with Step By Step Photos

    Mint Chutney Recipe - Easy to Make Spicy Indian Mint Leaves Chutney

    The healthier choice is the idli btw b/c you just steam it no oil involved...but the dosa I recommend b/c the oil makes it taste great and also gives it a "potato chip" type crunch....my personal fav is dosa.... Hope you try it out!

    Peppermint has a bite to it, hence why it's called "pepper"mint. Wintergreen is really mild, not very minty. And spearmint is just.. gross.. lol

    Hi Mar, I've got a nice mint sauce that you'll want to eat by the spoonful!!!

    I'll find it and post it tomorrow.

    Coconut-Mint Sauce

    1/4 cup toasted coconut
    1 tablespoon ginger paste or 1 tsp. minced ginger
    2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
    1/4 cup vegetable broth
    2 tablespoons agave nectar (or other sweetener)
    1 teaspoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 clove garlic

    Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender until smooth.
    Serves 4.
    Nutrition (per serving): 51 calories, 17 calories from fat, 2g total fat, 0mg cholesterol, 74.9mg sodium, 57.6mg potassium, 8.6g carbohydrates, <1g fiber, 6.3g sugar, <1g protein, 1.5 points.


    If you're interested, here's the patties the sauce goes on. I love them!

    Red Lentil and Rice Patties with Coconut-Mint Sauce

    1 cup Red Bhutanese rice (brown rice should work too)
    1/2 cup red lentils
    3 1/2 cups water
    3/4 tsp salt
    1 tsp cumin seeds
    1 large onion, finely diced
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

    1 tbsp. cornstarch
    1 tsp sesame oil (optional but adds great flavor)
    Coconut-Mint Sauce (recipe follows)

    I simplified the recipe by putting the first 7 ingredients into the rice cooker and cooking them until it shut off. If you don’t have a rice cooker, you may be able to cook it over low heat in a covered pan, as you would rice. Or, follow the instructions in the original recipe.
    When the rice mixture is done (and the rice is completely tender), let it cool until it’s easy to handle. Add the cornstarch and mix gently. Shape into patties and fry in the sesame oil until browned on each side, about 3-4 minutes. Serve with sauce, below.
    Oven option: Bake on silicone baking mat or parchment papers at 350 for 40 minutes, turning after 20 minutes. No oil needed.
    Serves: 4
    Nutrition (per serving, using 1 tsp. oil): 286 calories, 27 calories from fat, 3.1g total fat, 0mg cholesterol, 449.5mg sodium, 298.1mg potassium, 54.8g carbohydrates, 4.8g fiber, 1.7g sugar, 10.1g protein, 7.8 points.
    If you bake them instead, without the oil, the count is:
    Nutrition (per serving): 276 calories, 17 calories from fat, 2g total fat, 0mg cholesterol, 449.5mg sodium, 298.1mg potassium, 54.8g carbohydrates, 4.8g fiber, 1.7g sugar, 10.1g protein, 7.5 points.

    I bake my patties instead of frying them.

    Mar, I wanted to mention that mint grows great in pots on your patio if you're ever interested in having them on hand all the time.

    Thank you very much. I did try to grow them before, but not transferred soon enough that they just vanished in the rain-). I will plant again when i get planting materials.
