This is my favorite way to prepare Italian Stuffed Zucchini Flowers -stuffed with mozzarella and goat cheese, dipped in a light batter, and fried. This delicious summer bite makes the most perfect appetizer.
Cook Time: 20 mins
For the batter – eggs – all-purpose flour – cornstarch – San Pelligrino sparkling water, or club soda – sea salt For the stuffing – zucchini flowers – goat cheese – shredded mozzarella – fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes – sea salt
Which flowers do I pick off my zucchini plant? The zucchini plants have male and female flowers. You will want to pick the male, as the females grow the zucchini. Each plant will have more than enough male flowers. Just be sure to leave some behind for pollination.
Where can I find zucchini flowers? In case you don’t have a green thumb and a garden full of zucchini plants like my in-laws in Italy, you should be able to find them at farmers markets and some specialty markets. In Italy, they are packaged in bunches and I’ve seen them in the summer at every grocery store.
