Stuffed zucchini blossoms recipe

Zucchini blossoms can be cooked in various ways. You can fry them and have a delicious starter, or fill them with cheese and herbs. Today I will show you how to stuff zucchini blossoms with rice.

Zucchini blossoms must be used with care because they are very delicated.

Ingredients:

1 cup rice

2 large onions finely chopped

4-5 grated ripe tomatoes

¾ cup parsley finely chopped

2 tbsp dried mint (or fresh chopped mint)

Salt, peper

¼ cup olive oil in the stuffing

¼ cup olive oil for cooking

11/2 cup water for cooking

Preparation

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

Start filling the blossoms (1 teaspoon) and fold the petals of the blossom in such a way so the stuffing is kept inside the flower.

Cover the bottom of a deep pan with thin slices of potato or zucchini in order to avoid food sticking to the pan. Place the stuffed flowers in a circular way in the pan. Add water and oil and let it be cooked in low heat until liquids are absorbed.

Let it rest for a while and serve with yogurt.
