Fried Zucchini flowers are one of the tastiest starters from the spring-summer season flavors. Bake The Zucchini flowers in the oven for a light starter filled with soft cheese for those who do not like ricotta. You can use gluten-free flour as well. In short, the filling can vary according to taste. In Italy, every family has its way of preparing food. Here’s Giovanna’s recipe on how to prepare delicious Fried Zucchini Flowers:
Ingredients for about ten pieces:
First, let’s prepare the batter:
200 g of all-purpose flour (you can also use gluten-free flour)
10 g brewer’s yeast
In a bowl, put the flour, brewer’s yeast, salt, and little by little from the beer.
Mix well until a batter forms a thick consistency and let it stand aside.
And now the Zucchini flowers:
Ten fresh zucchini flowers from the market
150g ricotta cheese
Two tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
50 g mozzarella or provola
Salt at taste
One egg yolk
How to prepare the filling:
Cut the mozzarella into small strips
Then add salt, pepper, and the egg yolk to the ricotta. Mix everything well.
Now you can start stuffing the zucchini flowers by adding a strip of mozzarella and a spoon of the ricotta filling.
After that, immerse the stuffed pumpkin flowers in the batter and fry them in the hot oil until they turn golden.
Drain them from excess oil by using kitchen paper.
Serve the Fried Zucchini Flowers Stuffed with Ricotta and Mozzarella cheese while still hot.
Buon Appetito 😊
