Vietnamese Mint

Breakfast this morning was spent in the garden, cutting fresh stems of Vietnamese mint (or Laksa plant) for today's hilbarn boxes. They looked a little perkier after last night's thunderstorm: maybe they danced in the rain like everyone else! More please, as Oliver would say.

This mystery sprig of nature smells divine! Anyone got any suggestions on cooking with it?
