So…I saw these zucchini blossoms when we went shopping the other day, and I just had to try them out. This recipe is the most fun I’ve ever had with cooking so far. It is so easy it practically cooks itself, and it makes a good appetizer for the New Year’s Party you’re hosting at home. Zucchini blossoms are beautifully coloured and fragile. The interesting fact about them is that they have this cavity inside…which can be used as a socket for any filling you might think of to make this recipe go wild. What you do is take the zucchini flowers, wash them and remove the little bulb inside.
Make this simple blend…I used six tablespoons of flour, one glass of sparkling water, one pinch of salt, one pinch of pepper and one drizzle of sugar on top. Mix everything together in a paste that is neither too fluid, nor too thick.
For the filling, I used cheese…and to make my zucchini flowers more interesting…I used not one type of cheese, but more…so that each zuchinni blossom would be different in taste. What I did next was fill the little sockets of the zucchini flowers with the cheese…dip them in the flour mixture and take them to the frying pan.
The whole thing takes you about 15 minutes…the eating part…may take no more than 5…that’s how delicious and easy on the stomach these delicate zucchini flowers are. Bon Appetit, my doves!
