The chives in my herb planter have been flowering glorious bright puple balls, and I remembered last year discvoering that they were edible.
I’d been doing my first 5:2 fast day in ages, and so I reckoned they would make a pretty addition to a salad.
- some salad leaves (10)
- apple (60)
- cucumber (15)
- hard boiled egg (75)
- slice of parma ham (30)
- A blob of Greek yoghurt (40)
and sprinkle with the individual segments from the chive flowers. Total calories 230.
I’m interested in what else they can be used for – have you ever seen them in a recipe?
