Lots of mint

Recommended Posts

I planted mint this year, just for fun, and I have a ton of it! Anybody have ideas for using fresh mint? Besides mojitos, ha ha! I've gotten a lot of suggestions for that.

I have so much basil, lemon basil and mint that is just sitting out in the garden! I've used the basil for making some tomato sauces, but I'd love to hear some ideas for the lemon basil and mint.

I make this mean 'greek' dish... do it all the time, simple too.

Season 2 chik breasts with Cavenders Greek seasoning (buy it next to salt and pepper in groc. store) brown in olive oil

Remove breast from pan and add a bowl of cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half. I guess I pick what is ready... cereal bowl size works. I think the clear cherry tomatoe packages in the strore are a pint and they work perfect.

Saute with some onion and garlic ( 1/2 large onion chopped and 3-4 cloves garlic) till all is oftened. Add some salt and fresh cracked pepper. If I have a fresh small zucchini or yellow squash, I will cut into small 'fries' and add them to this mixture.

Add in the fresh sqeezed juice from one lemon and 1/2 cup of fresh mint chopped. Stir into sauce mixture. Sprinkle feta cheese over the top (to your liking) and cut chik into strips and lay on top of cheese. Pop the whole pan into your oven to melt the cheese and serve over orzo pasta... Great lite, flavorful dish...

Good Luck!

Did not know wether to put this under the creamed cuke thread or here, but thought the mint needed some more love. Did up some tonight with all fresh form the garden cucs, onion, garlic, yogurt, lemon juice, mint, oregano, salt, pepper, and instead of sugar, stevia, also from the garden. As Darkie mentioned in the cuke thread, just add whatever makes you happy, you really can't go wrong. Just got to do it......
