My friend, Stephanie gave me Squash blossoms from her garden today. I have never cooked with them before.
What does one do with Squash blossoms? Well I ask Google and find many recipes that urge me to “Fill them up with cheese and then deep fry.” While other recipes call for putting them in Omelets, Frittata, Quesdillas or use them as a Pizza topping.
So now what am I going to do with them? I eat one raw, it is delicious! Then I chop some of the Squash blossoms, put them in an existing Dosa ( crepe) batter. And I make some Dosas for lunch! Delicious!!!
I stir fry the remaining Squash blossoms on a medium-hot sauce pan for about 4 – 5 minutes, then add them to shredded to Red Cabbage -Cucumber salad with a bit of lemon juice and a sprinkle of crushed pepper on the top.
Yummy! Next time, I will stir fry the Squash blossoms with some rice, peas ….and cumin………….
