Cilantro – Mint Sauce

by Marianne Navada

Also known as green chutney, cilantro-mint sauce is a great source of fiber. It’s full of antioxidants, it reduces inflammation, and is a low calorie herb.

There are so many ways to incorporate this herb-sauce in your dishes. Use it as a spread for cucumber sandwiches, add it to avocados, vegan-buttered toast, or to fried rice.

Making your own sauces at home means using fresh ingredients with the least preservatives. It also saves you money.
