They are great stuffed with cheese and not fried, also good in fritatta and risotto. Or perhaps over fresh pasta with a light tomato or browned butter sauce?
I've seen any number of squash blossom soup recipes. I made one a couple of years ago that had onions, poblano chiles, and some cream, along with the shredded squash blossoms. It was fantastic.
I just used them to make yummy quesadillas :-)
Squash Flower tacos. Common street food in Mexico City. Saute onion, Garlic, olive oil then add male flowers at the end. serve with avocado sea salt & hot sauce.
My wife and I came up with this recipe for squash blossoms awhile back and we really love it: http://www.food52.com/recipes...
The blossoms are stuffed with a small amount of raisins, fresh mozarrella, and sundried tomatoes, and then roasted and drizzled with walnut oil. The walnut flavor goes really well with the squash blossoms.
My Italian grandfather taught me to scramble them with eggs and some fresh herbs -- delicious!
@clintonhillbilly that sounds wonderful!I
