New spring potatoes are deliciously in season now, but the shining star in this recipe is mint.
Even if you have a black thumb, you can grow this versatile herb. A small pot of mint on any sunny windowsill is almost impossible to kill. In fact, if you do happen to have a little plot of garden soil, do not plant mint; it will take over your garden like a weed. Always plant mint in a container.
Fresh mint is magic in the kitchen. You can:
- Toss whole or torn leaves into salads
- Pair it with peas for a classic combo; serve mixed into brown rice
- Make Vietnamese noodles or a banh mi sandwich with fish sauce and mint
- Flavor your water without added sugar or artificial sweeteners
