This is a great side dish to meat or fish. It's very easy to make and a good way to use up all those purple flowers that chives make. Make sure when you pick them that the flowers are still young and tender.

I never would have thought to eat the flowers until I saw this recipe and I really enjoyed this. I forgot the pepper in the end but I'm glad I did because I left some of the chive on which made them spicy. These looked really pretty plated. I look forward to the next time my chives flower so that I can make this again. Read More
