A Little Squash Blossom Snack

I have the cure to the zucchini epidemic. Eat the blossoms. Here is a little snack I just cooked up- fried squash blossoms stuffed with goat cheese. The photo shows the recipe:

5 oz. of goat cheese
2 cloves garlic
1 small Hungarian pepper
Small handful of flat leaf Italian parsley

Chop the garlic, pepper and parsley in the food processor. Add in the goat cheese and blend until well mixed. Stick it in the refrigerator while you do the rest.

1 cup flour
1 cup (a wee bit more) beer
dash salt

Mix well.

To stuff:
Gently open up the blossom and remove the stamen by pinching it off with your fingers. You may actually rip the blossom open but that’s o.k. Stuff the blossoms with the chilled goat cheese mixture.
Dip in the batter and fry in 2 inches of hot peanut oil. Brown on one side for a few minutes and turn with tongs to brown the other side. Serve immediately.

    The perfect snack with May wine!

  2. They were tasty and went well with a little red wine. Beer would have been good too but I used all I had in the batter.

  3. This sounds wonderful. We will have to try this. Bye the way, I am loving your blog.

  4. Crissy,
    Thank you. I just finished the manuscript for my second book so I should have more time to devote to it!
