Savory Foods with Lavender Sprigs?

lmoy | Feb 19, 200808:20 AM

We picked up some lavender sprigs over the weekend and have no idea what to put them in. There are tons of recipes out there for lavender buds, but so few for the piney bitter leaves of the plant!

Last night we made a quiche with lavender, rosemary, onions, kale, and goat cheese. It was awesome, and now I'm hooked! Now looking for a couple other dishes -- any suggestions? One website recommended putting lavender leaves in pizza, but I'm not sure how their flavor will pair with tomatoes. Has anyone tried that?

Extra points for vegetarian or seafood dishes!

Thanks in advance!
