It has been far too long since I’ve updated.  I’ve missed it very much.  Fortunately, just because I haven’t written doesn’t mean I didn’t have some pretty awesome food these last months.  April and May were a bit dreary, but ever since the warm weather hit we’ve been out on the balcony enjoying the fresh summer fare.

Today was no exception.  After my run, I stopped off at our local farmer’s market to see what might look good for dinner.  The first stand caught my eye with a beautiful bag of zucchini blossoms.  I’ve never cooked them, but I’ve always wanted to so I decided they were going to be on my plate tonight.

The friendly chap instructed me to bread them and fry them and that is exactly what I did.  Paired with tossed greens, a summer fresh tomato and homegrown basil it was delicious meal and perfect for a summer night.  If you come across these little gems be sure to pick them up and give them a try.

Zucchini Blossoms

 

  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • fresh bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • zucchini blossoms
Rinse and dry your blossoms.  Prepare a saute pan with a little oil and heat to medium high.  Mix the bread crumbs with the salt and pepper and the cheese.  Dip each blossom in the egg and then crumbs.  Drop in the pan.  Cook on each side until golden.  Be sure to use the best quality ingredients you can as this is a simple recipe that really shines with good stuff.  Enjoy it with other market and garden fresh items.
Here is to summer!
