Nasturtiums = wasabi?

The teen just nibbled on a nasturtium leaf and said

"Is this what wasabi is made from?" Now I believe that wasabi is made from horseradish, but you know what, there is a similarity!

Off to google to find out more!

Good thought, Teen! Actually that reminds me of this dip I had last summer - rocket with cashew nuts and parmesan - delicious! Reckon you could do something similar with nasturtium leaves . . . xx

Nasturtiums.....I have them growing everywhere this year, purely because they are easy and cover a lot of awkward gardening places.
Have eaten them in salad, never made the wasabi connection.....interesting.
