Mint is a great herb to cook, pair with other foods and provide sensory exploration with children to help teach taste for a lifetime of adventurous eating. Mint is my new cilantro. Cilantro was my best friend. I felt confident using it. Until recently, I have always been leery with mint and then one day I added it to a salad (Tangy Asian Salad) and my mind was blown. I always limited mint to fruit or Strawberry Mojito Sorbet but I was wrong, very wrong. Mint is high in B vitamins, potassium, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and many more vital nutrients so eat up!
