Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms Recipe

I never imagined that I would sacrifice hours of my sleep in order to gather flowers. But my parents’ most famous garden had something special: zucchini blossoms. And here is the most delicate stuffed zucchini blossoms recipe. If you are a fan of delicate flavors, then keep reading.

During the summer I have spent some days to my hometown, Florina. There, my parents have a wonderful garden that, apart from raspberries (which I used to make raspberries and blueberries cake)  they produce a lot of delicious vegetables.

This time I had my eyes on the shy zucchini blossoms that are wide open only in the early hours. So it happened. I woke up in the morning and we went with my parents to pick up some (yes, mom, you picked them up but I was picking up some raspberries).

At the beginning I wanted to make them fry. But they are so delicate, I did not have other choice. I thought that frying them would be something like torture for them. Finally, I made the decision.Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms.

I had to admit that it was like a small torture, but this time for me. They are so small and fragile that you have to be siblings with the Dalai Lama and have a lot of patience in order to fill them with some rice. But I loved their taste so much that I have made the recipe twice. And if I had some zucchini blossoms I would have done it again.
