How to make nasturtium chips
All parts of the nasturtium are edible, making it one of our favourite flowering plants to grow and eat. Nasturtiums are one of the easiest plants to grow. They require very little attention but will grow vigorously and fill your garden with bright edible leaves, flowers and seeds. If you have loads of nasturtium leaves in your garden, make the most of them by creating nasturtium chips.
Nasturtium chips are much like kale chips. They’re crispy, light, delicious, and full of flavour, beneficial minerals, and vitamins. They’re also incredibly easy to make and will be ready to eat from garden to plate within 20 minutes or less. Find the recipe below or watch how we make them here.
- Nasturtium leaves
- Bottle or spray olive oil
- Salt, garlic powder, onion powder or other seasonings
- Preheat oven to 275(F).
- Pick nasturtium leaves and wash and dry them thoroughly.
- Lightly spray or brush both sides with extra virgin olive oil.
- Line a tray with baking paper and place the nasturtium leaves face down to prevent curling in the oven.
- Season with salt, onion or garlic powder. You can also experiment with other seasonings, such as chilli flakes.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Check if they’re crispy before taking them out. If they’re not crispy, leave them in for another minute or two.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool before transferring them to a plate or platter.
Note: nasturtium leaves are best enjoyed as soon as they’re cooked, but you can store them in an airtight container for 1 to 2 days.
