Nasturtiums are easy to grow, and are an under-used garden staple. With a peppery, mustard like flavour, they are packed with vitamin C and iron. All parts of the plant are edible, from the leaves, to the seeds & even the flowers.
3 handful Nasturtium leaves
6 Nasturtium seeds
1 Handful pine nuts
4 Garlic cloves (peeled)
Handful of mature cheddar cheese (grated)
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt & pepper
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
6 Nasturtium flowers
Wash the leaves well. Black fly are huge fans of Nasturtiums.
Stick all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz well.
Store in a clean sterile jar.
To use, add a couple of teaspoons per person to your cooked pasta.
