Who loves easy, quick, flavorful recipes?!
If that’s you, then stick around because 5 Ingredient Mint Cilantro Chutney is here for the best kind of midweek pick-me-up!
With only FIVE ingredients, this chutney is going to go straight to the top of your sauce/dip/marinade list. Puree mint, cilantro, ginger, garlic and lime juice together… then add in a little water and salt (kitchen basics, so if you’re ok with it we’re not counting it in our “five” ingredients). Oh, and if you want a little extra kick, sometimes I throw a Serrano pepper in the mix.
Pepper or no pepper… this chutney is out of this world with flavor! The fresh mint and cilantro could not be a more perfect pair. The ginger and garlic add just the right amount of pow you need in a sauce like this.
I love using this chutney in so many ways! It’s perfect for a marinade on shrimp, dipping veggies in, on a sandwich, a pita wrap, roasted potatoes, as a salad dressing. The list goes on and on. Literally wherever you want super fresh, loaded flavor, this chutney is the ticket.
I’d love to hear your favorite way to enjoy this quick 5 Ingredient Mint Cilantro Chutney!
