Cooking with the Moon flowers (annual honesty)

This year the forest was filled with Lunaria annua, a wild biennial herbaceous plant. Also known as Moon grass because of the silvery fruits that recall the full moon. It is among the first to bloom in spring. I cook its leaves and purple flowers with a pumpkin puree. Leaves can both be eaten raw (slighty bitter taste) or bolied . Apparently they also provide some health benefit.
