Courgette flowers and small young courgettes are tasty and look beautiful. This recipe is only a simple one for cheesy stuffed and fried courgette flowers and I obviously used the garden crops from my own balcony.
1 garlic clove
Wash the courgettes and flowers. Make sure to wash the flowers from the inside as well and remove the stamen. Make small cuts on the sides of the small courgettes. Chop the garlic and mozzarella small and mix them in a bowl. Season with basil, salt and pepper.
Stuff the courgette flowers with the cheese mix and twist the ends so that they stay closed. You might also want to close them with a toothpick.
Heat some olive oil in a pan and fry the courgettes with the flowers lightly. Serve as a starter or a side dish and feel the taste of summer!
