Ingredients

  • 10

    zucchini blossoms

  • 1

    cup cooked brown or white rice

  • 1

    small onion, grated

  • 1

    clove garlic, crushed

  • 1

    red or yellow bell pepper, minced

  • 6

    cremini mushrooms, chopped fine

  • 1

    large tomato, seeded and diced fine

  • 2

    tbsp fresh parsley, minced

  • 2

    tbsp fresh basil or oregano, minced

  • 1

    tbsp vegan Parmesan substitute, nutritional yeast, or Parmesan cheese

  • Enough egg replacer for two eggs (or vegetable oil if you don’t have this), or two eggs

  • Breadcrumbs for dredging, approximately 1 cup

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Olive oil for frying

Directions

1.Immerse the blossoms in cold water for at least 10 minutes. Gently pat dry with paper towel or a soft dishcloth. 2.As the blossoms are soaking, fry the onion, garlic, mushrooms, pepper, mushroom and tomato for 5 minutes on medium with a splash of olive oil. Remove from the pan and reserve. 3.In a mixing bowl, add the vegetable mixture to the herbs and “Parmesan.” Mix until just combined, and mash slightly with a fork so the mixture sticks together. 4.Using your fingers, carefully stuff each blossom with approximately one tablespoon of stuffing. 5.Gently close the boom, and then dredge in the oil/egg, then breadcrumbs. 6.Heat enough olive oil in a frying pan or skillet to cover half of the blossom (perhaps 2 centimeters). Set to medium high. 7.Once heated, place the blossoms in the oil, and fry for approximately 3-4 minutes. Gently turn the blossom over after two minutes of frying. 8.With a slotted spoon or spatula, remove the blossoms and place onto a plate padded with paper towel to soak in the excess oil. 9.Serve warm, with a summer salad or as a topping for pasta
