🌼 Zucchini Flowers

Zucchini flowers, also known as zucchini blossoms or squash blossoms, are simply edible flowers that grow from zucchini (courgette) plants. They are elongated yellow flowers with a velvety texture.

📋 Benefits

Zucchini blossoms are rich in potassium and calcium, as well as vitamins A and C.

🔪 Harvesting

It is rather easy to harvest zucchini flowers! Gently cut or pinch slightly below the base of a blossom to harvest. Check for insects hiding in the folds, then simply rinse in cold running water and pat dry before using.


🍽 Ways to Use

The shape of a courgette blossom suits itself rather well to stuffing with any ingredients of your choosing. Zucchini flowers are especially delicious paired with nearly any type of cheese. They are also a wonderful addition to salads, and pasta and take on a delightful, delicate crispiness when fried. Fried zucchini blossoms can be used to top off all sorts of savory dishes.
