Fried Stuffed Zucchini Flowers



The summer season bring some fascinating ingredients to the neighborhood farmers market. I want to try getting something a bit various, to avoid making the exact same each week. On a current journey, I saw zucchini blossoms. I have actually tried preparing with them in the past, with very little success, yet though I would certainly give them an additional shot. The majority of dishes I have actually found treat them as a side recipe, but I intended to utilize them in something extra substantial. Here’s the dish I have developed:

Fried Stuffed Zucchini Flowers


1tbsp Vegetable Oil

1 Medium Onion, diced

2 Cloves of Garlic, diced

1lb Hamburger

Salt and Black Pepper

8oz Cream Cheese

12 huge Zucchini Flowers

Grease for frying

2 huge egg yolks

1 mug ice water

1 mug all-purpose flour


In a big sauté frying pan, warm oil. Add the onion as well as garlic as well as sauté till the onions are clear. Add the hamburger, and also salt as well as pepper to taste. Cook the ground beef up until gold brownish, after that drain and allot for 5 mins. Wash the zucchini flowers under cool water, after that open up the petals. Mix the lotion cheese into the beef combination, then spoon about 1/4 cup of the blend into each blossom, after that shut the flowers to seal the mix in.

At the same time, put 3 inches of oil right into a deep fryer or hefty pot and also warm to 375 levels F.

In a huge mixing dish, defeated the egg yolks lightly, after that mix in the ice water and also flour up until the batter is the consistency of whipping cream. Dip 2 blossoms at once in the combination, finishing entirely, after that drop them in the warm oil. Fry the blossoms for 2 to 3 minutes, up until golden brownish, after that drain them on a plate with paper towels. Repeat with the staying blossoms.

Offered with fresh veggies (beetroots, yams, and potatoes), this was an enjoyable as well as delicious dish. The flowers imparted a good hint of flavor, and the fried batter included a crisp appearance, enhancing the abundant creaminess of the meat as well as lotion cheese filling. A glass of 2009 Viognier from Hawley rounded out the dish, the crisp minerality of the wine contrasting the veggies and also deep fried tastes. As a matter of fact, any type of crisp white wine works well with this dish. Consider a riesling or a sauvignon blanc, and avoid merlots as they would certainly be also solid for the fragile nature of the zucchini flower.
