Zucchini Flowers with Feta

    20 minutes

    For those times when you find yourself with a pile of zucchini blossoms -or if you've ever wondered what you would do if you did. Its a basic fried recipe but I put a cube of feta in each flower before frying.

    Pro-tip: If you want to eat the blossoms and have zucchinis, use the extra male blossoms you have on the plants to make these! Just pick the ones without the little fruits on the bottom!  -  11 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought this recipe was a little boring and bland; If I'm going to eat a great ingredient like zucchini blossoms, I want a little pizazz from the recipe! I added tomatoes and basil to the top and that helped. If I were to make this again, I would add herbs to the bread crumbs and some veggies to the blossoms to give it more taste.  -  02 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
