Nasturtiums are all the rage with their beautiful edible flowers gracing so many dishes and salads. But did you know that the little stems and flowers are also edible. Known earlier as "Indian Cress" the edible plant had the peppery flavor of cress.
Nasturtium also had medicinal uses as the microgreens have a high content of Vit C and iron, while the leaves also have antibiotic properties that peak before the plant flowers. Because of these properties, the inclusion of these nasturtium microgreens can help with things like sore throats, common colds and bacterial and fungal infections.
