I love a healthy plant-based meal that uses mint. Mint is also known as mentha, and it’s a popular herb that is related to peppermint. You can use it fresh or dried in many dishes, drinks, and even beauty products. Mint is a calming herb with a long history of human consumption.

All you need in order to make this coconut mint sauce includes: coconut oil, coconut water, rice wine vinegar, sugar, salt, freshly chopped mint leaves. Coconut is such a wonderful flavor in the easy sauce recipe. In order to make it I start by melting the coconut oil in a sauce pan with freshly chopped mint leaves.

Stir it around while continuing to sauté on medium low heat. Next add in the coconut water and vinegar. Lastly stir in the sugar and salt whisk again and allow to simmer on medium low for five minutes. Allow the sauce to cool of for at least 10 minutes before serving. In the meantime make this plant based meal stir fry!
