Mint sauce – Mint pesto
This is easy to prepare and tasty.
Ingredients: 1/2 cup mint leaves, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic
Directions: Crush the mint leaves with the oil with a mortar and pestle. Enjoy!
This sauce is excellent on fried or baked eggplants. Use it also for lamb and boiled meats.
Now I know what you’re thinking: Who has a mortar and pestle? Well, I do, but only because it was a wedding gift. Before I had one, I would use a blender/cuisinart for these jobs, but here’s the reason why this is a ‘no-no’: The metal from the blades extracts a sort of bitterness from the leaves, and thus alters the taste. Now, will this ruin your creation? Not really. Will crushing the mint by hand give that extra-special flavor? Indeed. Good luck.
