 Nasturtium Leaves Details

Nasturtium leaves, part of the Tropaeolaceae family, were not initially eaten until introduced to the East, where they became popular for consumption and tea-making. These leaves offer a delightful combination of sweet, spicy, and peppery flavors, with a delicate, crisp texture, making them a favorite among chefs.

Nasturtium leaves resemble lily pads. These peppery leaves are rich in vitamin C and serve as an excellent base for seafood, meats, and poultry dishes, a fact appreciated by chefs worldwide. Enjoyed for their edible nature, nasturtium leaves contribute both flavor and nutrients to various culinary creations.

You can sprinkle them on top of your Gazpacho or incorporate them into your Lobster Roll. And did you know you can boil nasturtium leaves to make tea?

Nutritional Facts:

Nasturtium leaves benefits are endless. They are packed with nutrition, offering a range of vitamins and minerals that can benefit your health. They are particularly rich in vitamins A, C, and D, which can support immune function, vision, and bone health. 

Additionally, nasturtium leaves contain beta-carotene, an antioxidant that can help protect cells from damage and promote healthy skin. 

They also provide iron and manganese, essential minerals that can play key roles in energy production and metabolism. 

Furthermore, Nasturtium Leaves are loaded with flavonoids, plant compounds with antioxidant properties that may help reduce inflammation and lower the risk of chronic diseases. 

Storage and Usage Tips:

Best kept in your refrigerator between 36 to 40°F in their clamshell packaging. This helps preserve their quality for a longer duration.
