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.
