My courgette plant has been giving a bit of flowers recently. It’s end of season. I have decided to cook them by making some stuffing for them. I just nomally coat them in flour and then just pan fry them.
After making some chinese wontons (ravioli) the other day I had some stuffing leftover and I decided to put in the courgette flowers. they taste quite crisp and refreshing. If there is any left over just turn them into pork meatballs or patties. Just dip the patties into flour and some egg white or yolk. then dip them onto some breadcrumbs
Courgette flowers about 5-10, washed and clean
100 grms minced pork
1/2 carrot, chopped finely
2 stalks spring onion, slice thinly
1 tablespoon chopped coriuander
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
black pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoon of cooking oil
Put the minced pork, chopped carrot, sliced spring onions, chopped coriander and cornflour together in a bowl. Mix them together will they are well mix. Then put in the sesame oil, soy sauce and black pepper.
Then put the minced pork mixture into the courgette flowers cavity and the petals alone as it’s used to seal the filling.
Heat 2 tablespoon of cooking oil in pan. Once it’s heated up then put in the courgette flowers. Turn then round when the flowers start to wilt. Fry them on medium to low heat for about 15-20 minutes or till the minced filling it cook. Serve with rice or noodles.
