Mint Sauce

Our Mint Sauce for Lamb has a bright, mint-y and herbaceous flavor that enhances the grassy and savory taste of meaty lamb. Tangy lemon, Parmesan cheese, herbs and pine nuts give this sauce a fresh and aromatic burst of flavor. Even better, it takes just a few minutes to make!

Ingredients – 2 cups fresh mint leaves – 4-6 fresh basil leaves – 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves – 2 cloves garlic ¼  cup fresh lemon juice (½ of a lemon) – ½ cup pine nuts – ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese – 1/4 teaspoon black pepper – ½ cup olive oil

Place the mint, basil, oregano and garlic in a mini food processor or blender. Process briefly.

Step 1

Stop the motor and scrape down the bowl. Add the lemon juice, pine nuts, Parmesan and pepper. Process again until well combined.

Step 2

Another bonus? There’s no cooking or boiling water required! This easy mint sauce is ready in just as long as it takes to gather the ingredients and process them together.

– This recipe will give you about 3/4 cup of mint sauce. It’s easy to double so feel free to scale up as needed! – Since Parmesan cheese has its own natural saltiness, hold off on adding salt until the very end. You may not need it.

This is a good mint sauce for nearly any main course lamb dish, but similar to pesto, it also works as a minty and savory sauce for fish, pastas and veggies, too!
