Is Mint Sauce Vegan?
A classic for roasts and easter feasts, many people love mint sauce to accompany their meals. But is it vegan?
A history of mint sauce
Mint sauce has been eaten in traditional British and Irish cuisine for hundreds of years, and variations of a green herby sauce like this have been popular since medieval Europe. It is traditionally served with roast lamb and other roasted meat — though of course those who are plant-based make the swap!
Is mint sauce vegan?
Mint sauce consists of mint (surprise, surprise), specifically spearmint, which is soaked in vinegar and a little bit of sugar. As a result, it is generally vegan, as it’s made from plant-based products. So the next time you’re wanting to add a little something extra to your nut roast, mint sauce is still definitely an option.
