Mint “Not” Butter

Mint “Not” Butter
To Butter or Not to Butter, that is the question…Definitely; go for it! Classic cooking is simple and it doesn’t get any easier than this! I am a big advocate of fresh herbs in cooking and why not as they add flavor and flair instantly to almost any meal! And don’t stop at mint; try basil, cilantro or dill and open up a whole world of possibilities!


Recipe by:
Category: sauces
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Total time: 

  • 2 tablespoons cholesterol-free butter substitute, (or real butter)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

  1. In a bowl use a fork to mix together all the ingredients until well blended. Keep refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 1 week or freeze for much longer.

Helpful Tip
This recipe already calls for a non-hydrogenated no cholesterol butter substitute such as an olive oil based Earth Balance to reduce the fats. But simply topping any roast with chopped fresh herbs like the mint used here can infuse the flavors right into the food with no added fats at all; you gotta love fresh herbs!
