Get Creative with Zucchini Blossoms!
Zucchini (also known as courgette) might be treated like the bigger deal here in the US, but across the sea, zucchini flowers hold their own spectacularly. In fact, if you're familiar with stuffed mushrooms at all, you have stuffed zucchini flowers to thank! When Europeans immigrated to the US, the lack of zucchini flowers is one of the main reasons stuffed mushrooms came to exist. It's time this tasty, flavorful flower got the recognition it deserves, and this summer is the perfect time to do it. Stuffed, fried, or baked, courgette blossoms are the perfect way to add a dash of color, elegance, and taste to any meal.
