    I imagine you could just use more parsley.

    mint Equivalents: 1 tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried Notes: Mint is used throughout the world to flavor everything from lamb to candy. It's also a great garnish and breath freshener. Spearmint is the variety you're most likely to encounter in markets, and it's the best choice for savory dishes. Peppermint = brandy mint has a stronger flavor and is best suited to dessert recipes. Used dried mint only in a pinch--it's not nearly as flavorful as fresh. Substitutes: fresh parsley + pinch of dried mint OR basil (especially in Thai cuisine) OR shiso

    I would use more parsley or basil, because I know both of those ingredients agree with most dogs..

    Just curious. Is there a reason you cannot get fresh mint? If it's considered a part of the "therapy" of ingredients, I think I'd probably find another recipe, or just omit. What is the mint added for in the frist place.....go from there as far as a sub might be concerned.

    They are basically a dog treat, the mint lends flavor, and helps freshen "doggie breath". Adding extra parsley or using basil will also help "doggie breath" if they will eat the biscuits.

    I'd either leave it out, use a smaller amount of dried mint, or, for my dog, I'd swap it for a teaspoon or so of tarragon. He LOVES tarragon. icon_smile.gif
