Here's an utterly delicious and unexpted way to use up a bounty of zucchini blossoms, which proliferate in home gardens and farmstands during the summer. It's certainly easier than than stuffing, coating, and frying the blossoms in the usual manner. In this recipe, the blossoms are first blanched to make more tender before being folded into a cornmeal batter, drizzled with olive oil, and baked until the flatbread forms a golden crust.

Ingredients

  • 300 grams all purpose flour
  • 50 grams corn flour
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • warm water (or milk)
  • salt
  • 200 grams zucchini (blossoms)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Wash the zucchini blossoms, remove the pistils, then blanch them in boiling salted water for approximately 2 minutes. Chop them coarsely with a knife.
  3. Combine the two types of flour in a bowl with a pinch of salt, oil, and warm water into a fluid batter. Add the zucchini blossoms.
  4. Grease a baking pan with oil, pour the batter inside, and drizzle the top with some extra virgin olive oil.
  5. Bake for approximately 45 minutes until golden.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and serve warm.

Battered zucchini flowers are fried, mixed into a cornmeal batter and baked until golden giving this classic Tuscan flatbread recipe an exotic twist. The cornmeal batter is made moist with olive oil. A few raw blossoms on the plate when served would make a beautiful presentation.
