Zucchini Blossoms stuffed with Goat Cheese
Fleurs de Courgettes farcies au Fromage de Chèvre
A Recipe From: Provence
Zucchini blossoms are available at Farmer's markets in season. Grab them when you see them!

Skill Level: Easy
Serves: 4

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Separate the eggs. With a fork, mash the goat cheese and mix in the egg yolks, garlic, basil, and pepper. Whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt and fold into the cheese mixture. Carefully open up the zucchini blossoms and fill them with the cheese and egg preparation. Oil an oven-proof dish with 1 Tbsp of olive oil; arrange the stuffed blossoms in the dish and sprinkle with the remaining oil. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot.

Sylvaine's tips
This can also makes a fantastic vegetarian entrée. If desired, serve the stuffed blossoms on top of fresh tomato sauce.
