Mint Chutney

 

 

Mint is considered a carminitive, an herb that reduces gas and bloating. Mint has been used historically for dyspesia, nausea, IBS, and stomach cramps. Combined with peppers, this dish is high in Vitamin C and A. Coriander seeds and leaves are also considered carminative and help chelate heavy metals. Coriander can also be used as an appetite stimulant and antimicrobial. Overall, this recipe helps support digestion and reduce inflammation.

 

Most chutneys tend to have sugar and onions. For my patients with digestive issues, these ingredients can feed unwanted bacteria and yeast. This recipe is low in fermentable sugars and has no sugar or sweetener.
