Garlic Scape Chutney

3/4 c chopped garlic scapes, tops removed

1/2 c fresh mint packed

1/2 c roasted or smoked almonds

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 jalapeño or Serrano pepper (opt)

1 Tab lime juice

1/3 c olive oil


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until uniformly granular.



Use garlic chutney like you would any chutney—to adorn curries, as a pasta or rice topping or to spice up grilled vegetables.

Garlic chutney is great spread on naan, covered with a little melty cheese like mozzarella, and grilled in the oven or on the barbeque for 2-3 minutes.
