Edible flower recipe - Nasturtium & Runner Bean Omelette

Nasturtium and Runner Bean Omelette

• 2 eggs
• 30ml (2tbsp) milk
• 2 nasturtium seeds
• 4 nasturtium petals
• Salt and freshly ground pepper
• 15ml (1tbsp) butter
• Freshly grated parmesan cheese to taste.

Slice the runner beans finely and add to a saucepan of boiling water and cook for 4 minutes, then drain. Beat the eggs with the milk. Crush the seeds with a fork, and then add the seeds, leaves and petals to the egg mixture. Season lightly with salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a gentle heat. Pour the egg and nasturtium mixture into the pan, add the beans and cook gently until the omelette has just set. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve immediately, garnished with extra petals.
