The whole concept fascinates me, that a flower, stuffed with cheese, battered, and fried, can taste so incredible!

  • 8-12 zucchini blossoms
  • 1/2 cup 4oz goat cheese
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh chives chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil chopped
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 8-10 garlic cloves
  • oil for frying the garlic and blossoms - I used avocado oil
  • 1 cup of gluten-free flou
  • 1 tsp salt.
  • 3/4 - 1 cup of water
  1. Rinse squash blossoms and removed stamen, let dry.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat, add whole garlic cloves and cook until slightly browned and crispy. Remove from heat, let garlic cloves cool and chop.
  3. In a small bowl, mix goat cheese, chopped garlic, parsley, chives, basil, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Stuff squash blossoms with about a tablespoon of goat cheese mixture.
  5. In another small bowl, mix together gluten-free flour, salt, and water. Batter will be watery, feel free to add more or less water, depending on your preference.
  6. Heat 2-3 tbsp of avocado oil in a skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, dredge stuffed squash blossoms in flour-water mixture and place in oil. Fry until lightly browned, turning to evenly brown all sides. Cook in batches if needed to not overcrowd the pan.
  7. Enjoy.
