Baked (not fried) Zucchini Flowers

Zucchini flowers are a problem for me. If I see them for sale, I just can’t seem to walk past them without buying them. The problem is not really the excessive purchasing, but instead the fact that they taste wonderful stuffed and deep fried.

All that deep frying is not healthy for an individual, so given I am taken to purchasing them rather regularly with thanks to the great produce on offer at Ramsgate Organic Foodies Market, I need to find healthier ways to eat them.

I’ve tried healthier options in the past with great results so thought I would try them for lunch this weekend stuffed and baked.

I’ve decided this is a great healthy way to eat zucchini flowers. They aren’t as crunchy as the fried option, but with a flavourful filling the blossoms taste wonderful and are much better for my waistline.

    I've only recently discovered my love for zucchini flowers. I don't know what it is but they are an absolute TREAT to eat. I love how when baking them you've kept almost the original look of the zucchini flower :) Wonderful job hun x

    It seems the baked over fried option is a winner. People at work have mentioned how they are wanting to try it too. :)
