Add Mint to Your Meal
Add mint leaves to your hot pot of tea for a soothing change of pace. Or, for a refreshing twist on regular iced tea or lemonade, crush several mint leaves and add them to an ice cube tray with water. Freeze and then add the cubes to the tea or juice. As the cubes melt, the mint flavour will be infused in the drink.
Add several sprigs of mint to peas, green beans or new potatoes while they boil bringing a mild mint flavour to them.
To perk up plain rice, add lightly chopped and bruised mint leaves to the rice as it finishes cooking.
Mint is rich in Vitamins A and C and also contains Vitamin B2, calcium, zinc, copper, magnesium and potassium.
