what to do with mint?
i just bought a huge bunch of mint on impulse, and now i don't know what to do with it. Anyone got any onteresting recipes that are quick and easy?
Mint ice cubes! You would need to have ice trays to do that, but they work nice in cocktails or iced tea.
Add a few torn leaves to iced tea or lemonade and let it sit in the fridge for awhile.
Trim the ends and put it in a small glass of water. If nothing else, it makes for a fragrant bouquet for the kitchen.
I saw a recipe for a minted cranberry sauce in Saveur that sounded very refreshing. You just make a basic sauce, and toss in a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped fresh mint at the very end.
Make Tabouli! Wonderful with lots of fresh mint & parsley!
Also mix mint & garlic into plain yogurt & use as a simple sauce/topping for meat, chicken, fish, roasted veggies...especially good with grilled eggplant...
Check Persian & Turkish recipes...mint is widely used in middle eastern cuisines....
