Blender Mint Chutney

Quick 5 minute Mint Chutney recipe using only 5 ingredients. Healthy, gluten free, dairy free, and a great way to use leftover herbs. pinit

Sometimes you need just a little added flavor for a dish… like when you have leftover Indian food or are making falafel bowls. Other times, you need to figure out what to do with that leftover mint you bought for some recipe off the internet… like this peach tomato mint stacker.

In any case, this easy blender mint chutney is delicious and fits the bill for both! It only requires 7 ingredients and about 5 minutes.

Why this recipe works

First, it’s relatively easy. After plucking the mint leaves from the stems and sauteing garlic, simply put the remaining ingredients in the blender and pulse until smooth.

Mint Chutney is also amazing on these grilled cantaloupe prosciutto skewers.

The fresh minty flavor perfectly compliments the sweet cantaloupe and the savory salty prosciutto.

You can also save the Mint Chutney for Later

I like to freeze the Mint Chutney in individual servings sizes to pull out and use later. Try it on falafel bowls and roasted chicken.

This works best by pouring the chutney into silicone ice cube trays until frozen. You can then take the frozen cubes and store them in a reusable bag like a stasher bag in the freezer until you’re ready to use it.

Mint Chutney Ingredients

The key ingredient is clearly mint, but this recipe is mellowed out with parsley. Sauteed garlic adds depth without bite and lemon juice adds freshness.

I add coconut milk for a slightly creamier texture. If you don’t like coconut, you can easily swap this for water, though it will have a slightly less creamy texture and taste and will be a different color.

Mint Chutney Ingredients

Making the Chutney

Saute Garlic in Olive Oil

We’ll do things in the quickest and most efficient order. Start by sauteeing the garlic in extra virgin olive oil on medium-high heat until golden brown. This should take about 1 minute.

Destem the Mint

Mint stems are very thick so you do not want to include them in the sauce. Pull all of the leaves off of the mint stem and then discard the stems.

If you’re measuring the mint by weight, measure with the stems on. This is the equivalent of the standard size packages of mint on the produce section.

If you’re measuring the min with a measuring cup, you’ll measure the mint leaves without the stems.

In summary, 2/3 oz whole mint or 1/2 cup mint leaves

You can use some of the Parsley Stems

Parsley stems are significantly less dense and woody than mint stems. Therefore, you don;t have to spend the time to completely destem parsley. Additionally, parsley stems have decent flavor that works well in sauces.

I like to remove the fully stemmy bits at the end. This looks like chopping off the bottom 1-3 inches of stems and discarding those. Then you can use the rest of the stems that have parsley leaves on them.

Blend until Smooth

Next, add the ingredients to a blender and bend until smooth. The water is meant to create the right consistency so start by adding the first tbsp of water to blend and then adding the rest of the water if needed.

What should I pair with this sauce?

Mint chutney is a classic recipe used in lots of Indian cuisines and is a great side for many dishes. You can find it on traditional curries as well as omelets, salads, shish kabobs, and just as a side for grilled meat and veggies.

I personally enjoy it on potatoes and these Cantaloupe Prosciutto Skewers.

Note

  • The water is added to get the correct consistency. Start by adding 1 tbsp and add extra water as needed to get to the perfect consistency
  • The mint is packed into the 1/2 cup. Make sure to follow the video to get the right amount of mint.
  • For the parsley, discard the bottom stems. You can leave the stems that are integrated with the leaves.
  • I use real salt which has high mineral content. If you do not have real salt, use Himalayan sea salt or kosher salt at half the quantity.
