Stuffed Zucchini Flowers Recipe

Delicate, flavorful, and absolutely delicious, Stuffed Zucchini Flowers are a true work of art. With their delicate flavor and light texture, these stuffed flowers are a must-try for anyone looking for a unique and sophisticated dish.

Ingredients:

  • 12 zucchini flowers
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, grated parmesan cheese, chopped basil, beaten egg, salt, and black pepper to create the filling.
  2. Carefully remove the stamen from inside each zucchini flower and fill with the cheese mixture. Gently close the petals to seal the filling inside.
  3. In a shallow dish, place the flour. In another shallow dish, place the breadcrumbs. Dip each stuffed zucchini flower in the flour, shaking off any excess, then dip in the beaten egg. Finally, coat in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, carefully place the stuffed zucchini flowers in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the coating is golden brown and crispy.
  5. Drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil. Serve the Stuffed Zucchini Flowers hot and enjoy the delicate flavor and light texture in every bite.

Tip: For a gluten-free option, try using gluten-free flour and breadcrumbs.
