Zucchini Blossoms Recipe
8-12 Squash Blossoms
(any zucchini, squash or pumpkin flowers)
Fresh Basil or Sage Leaves (1/2 cup+)
Hummus (homemade or store-bought)
Ricotta Cheese (1 cup+)
Diced Garlic (3+ cloves)
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: Hot Pepper Flakes (or minced fresh hot peppers)
Fry & Batter Option:
Flour of choice & Soda Water or Beer
If desired, coat the blossoms with a batter mix of flour and soda water (mix enough flour and soda or beer that it is a somewhat panckakey-drippy batter)
~ Or Pan Fry them! ~
Fry the blossoms in a cast iron skillet with oil, flip to brown both sides.
You can also deep fry these if you want. Sunflower oil is preferred.
Serve immediately while warm.
Feel free to vary up the recipe, you can stuff zucchini blossoms with all sorts of ingredients, such as frijoles, cheddar cheese, onions, garlic, rice, mashed potatoes – you name it! Have fun and play around with different stuffings made from ingredients that you have on hand.
