on friday, i stopped off at the echo park farmers market and couldn’t resist buying the squash blossoms! (even though i am starting a juice cleanse,but hey they are gluten free!) i love fried squash blossoms stuffed with mozzarella, and lazy ox use to have a mean one on their menu with honey. hence, my inspiration for some honey on these babies! i have to say this was a quick make up of a dish with things i had on hand or growing in the backyard!
this recipe is for four squash blossoms
4 squash blossoms
1/4 cup feta cheese
2 tsp thyme and sage
dash of olive oil
1/2 cup of masa
raw honey for drizzling
fleur de sel for a sprinkle
lemon for a squeeze
wash your squash blossoms and cut the ends to about an inch.
mix the feta, dash of olive oil, and herbs together in a bowl.
heat up some ghee in a pan. dip the blossom in the egg and then the masa. fry em up!
drizzle with the honey, lemon, and fleur de sel!
you can play around with the cheese…goat, mozzarella, farmers cheese? the herbs too! and of course, the masa is gluten free, but you can use regular flour or rice flour. whatever floats your boat!
