Stuffed Zucchini Flowers to Die For

Stuffed Zucchini Flowers to Die For

Baked stuffed zucchini flowers – an irresistible delicacy

I have always loved stuffed zucchini flowers, but I usually ate it once in a while, as I do not eat fried food often and the baked ones I tried weren’t that good.

Some days ago I saw an inviting photo of stuffed zucchini flowers on Instagram and…it is just delicious! I have already prepared it three times since then. It is so tasty that you just can’t resist.

The other day I prepared them for lunch for me and my son and, as he was late, while in the kitchen I ate half of the whole! I just couldn’t resist.

I could eat them so freely because they are light. The kind of healthy and tasty food that I love. It is stuffed with ricotta and it is also very quick to prepare.

I saw them in an Instagram story of Carlotta e il Bassotto Italian blog. She was so cute that promptly sent me the quantities and I made them the very same day. Besides the passion for cooking, we also have another common passion: dogs! Bassotto means basset, the dog breed. I may think about including my Yoko in the blog too …
