I just discovered that nasturtium leaves are edible!

My nasturtium plants were growing crazy so I needed some way to use them besides salads. This fit the bill and came out great! I followed the directions exactly except I added some good asaigo cheese. Yum! It was a bit of work getting the leaves blended -- had to add a little water to the mix -- but it got there eventually. Oh yeah, I halved the recipe for two. I served it over poached fish and also used it to dress our salad. There was still a lot leftover so I'm marinating two pieces of boneless, skinless chicken in it right now and will grill the chicken for tonight's dinner. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks!
