Nasturtium is in absolute abundance in my garden right now and I want to learn how to make the most of this fruitful time. I think learning how to use a plant is just as important as learning how to grow it. This month I have been exploring lots of different ways to use Nasturtium. Nasturtium mini quiches are so quick, easy, and taste delicious. Get the most out of your garden by growing things that have a multitude of uses to really help you maximise your space.
Nasturtium Mini Quiche
- 12 Medium – Large Nasturtium Leaves
- 5 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk or cream (i used coconut cream)
- 1/2 cup water
- Salt and Pepper to season
Whisk Quiche mix in a bowl and set aside.
- Red onion
- Spring onion
- Marinated olives
- Red capsicum
- Rainbow Chard
- Grated Cheese
Finely chop your filling vegetables. I overshot how many veggies I needed. My muffin trays are on the smaller side and you don’t need much to fill them. So just chop a little bit and you can always chop more if needed. You could add any vegetables you have available these are just what I had.
- Preheat Oven to 170-180 degrees celsius.
- Grease a muffin tray well with oil.
- Place your Nasturtium leaves top side down.
- Add your filling (except grated cheese), just a couple of pieces of each as it will soon fill up.
- Using a measuring cup or jug pour your Quiche mix in and try not to fill over the top of the leaves.
- Sprinkle with grated cheese.
- Bake for 30mins or until the filling has been set.
- Remove and allow to cool for 10mins.
- Carefully remove from trays using a spoon. You may need to run a knife around the top of the cheese has stuck to the sides.
Please note my recipes are more of a guide.. ( I am not a technically accurate baker, I just wing it).

My sister sent your Instagram blog to me just in time! My yard is covered in nasturtium blooms and I used them in the mini quiches this morning. Looked amazing and tasted the same. Thanks! I can’t wait to try the infused salt.
Thank you Stacey! I’m so glad you gave them a try 😊 The mini nasturtium wraps are another favourite of mine.
I live in Port Kennedy and am also still having issues with the cabbage butterflies. I just watched your live cooking nasturtium quiche. I very much enjoyed your ideas. Perhaps if you blanch the sweet potato leaves to soften them slightly before you use them for the quiche. I enjoy watching your vlogs. All the best in your endeavours.
Thanks Jill! Oh awesome, Thank you for watching. That’s a great idea for the sweet potato leaves! I hope the butterflies disappear with these cooler nights 🤞
Would like to see a photo of the finished dish. Do the edges of the leaves go limp, or do they get crispy?
