Zucchini blossoms stuffed with feta and oregano


I was so excited recently seeing my first zucchini blossoms and quickly got on facebook and twitter for recipe idea's without frying. I also learnt that the blossom on the left is male and on right female ;-)


I simply sauteed feta with a little butter, bread crumbs, tomato, oregano, and stuffed the blossoms after using a small grapefruit spoon to scoop out the inside. sprinkled with a more bread crumbs, a pinch of salt and olive oil and baked at 425 for 15 minutes. Oh my they were so good, can't wait to make more!
My favorite part was Jasmines comment that Mummy you can eat the boy one I will have the girl one!






Returned safely from our big family adventure to Europe, now for a rest :-), my zucchini plants are huge and even got to pick some fresh tomatoes on our return home what a thrill. Looking forward to looking up some of the dishes we ate on our travels and sharing here :-)
hugs

  7. Jealous that you have some already. I am waiting - they'll probably appear when I am on vacation. Love the filling in this - and I'll have the male or female blossom - not fussy!

    Welcome home!

    Was fun watching and reading about your travels. But it's always nice to get back to normal, isn't it? I love traveling, but am always happy to get back (where everything seems to be broken down!)

  19. I never thought to make one with the zucchini attached. Too cute. I have a ton in my garden too and just made some stuffed with goat cheese. I usually fry with a tempura type batter of flour and water, but the baking idea is something to try.
