Since I already used 'flower power' and I needed to use it again this is what I got, apologies in advance for my lack of originality. The squash gods smiled on me again and I am in the proud possession of another giant handful of these delectable blossoms.
This time I will give a step by step so you can see how these come together and if you want to make them yourselves this is what it looks like. You procure some blossoms, you make your stuffing, you stuff the blossoms - just like that!
Stuffed, then rolled in seasoned flour and ready to fry
after dipping in an icy cold tempura bath.
Fried and ready to kick back on a plate.
I put these together this time with an oily basil pesto oily basily pesto-ee sauce kind of thing, believe me it makes up in personality what it is lacking in looks!
You want a pretty one, here is a pretty one!
This is what the filling of langostines, ricotta, parmesano reggiano, provolone and asiago cheeses with some of the smaller flowers chopped up with some fresh basil looks like in a cross section, so dont say I didnt show you the insides! I am opened up this is me through and through. I love this so much that after they are made I cant bear to eat them because I dont want to run out- thats how silly giddy these make me.
