Stuffed Squash Blossoms

Finished IMG_5551

My need to dominate the over-abundance of zucchini in my garden continues.
I walked out on Friday afternoon and there were another million zucchini ready to be picked and probably two dozen squash blossoms – gorgeous – but a little overwhelming for a home cook.

Squash blossoms. A delicacy I’ve heard. Stuffed squash blossoms. Why not try making them. Why not try it now. I had no Friday night plans. So off I went on the hunt for a simple recipe – one that required nothing more than what I had in my house. I found scores of them. What I ended up with was a simple cheese and mint stuffing and a beer batter to coat the stuffed blossoms. I also found a nice tomato sauce recipe to lay the cooked stuffed blossoms on. The blossoms were really good and really easy to make.

  1. Since you’re dealing with the excess flowers… here’s the typical Mexican recipe for them. This are sooo fattening, but so good!!

  2. Oh my God that recipe looks incredible. I don’t think I have enough blossoms but I’ll see if I can buy some around here somewhere. Also I guess I need a tortilla press?
