Are Asian Pigeonwing (Clitoria ternatea) flowers safe for tortoises?

I'm planning to get a sulcata after I've informed myself properly of their care but I dont see any mention of this flower on the guides I've seen. My main concern is that I have a bunch of these flowers on my area and some are low enough for a tortoise to reach.

They are legumes which are generally safe in moderation.

Someone is likely going to comment that legumes are "bad" because they are high in protein but all animals need protein to live, including tortoises. They don't necessarily need as much as mammals but it's fine in moderation.
