When it comes to food, what makes Summer produce so significant isn’t always about heirloom tomatoes and stone fruits. Sure, we all love the classic seasonal produce (even obsess over them at times), but truly one of the forgotten treasures of Summer lies beyond the peach, plums and tomatoes. Let’s give thanks, appreciation and more love to the delicate zucchini flower.

It’s this time of year that we relish in zucchini flowers and as we call it, the forgotten jewel of Summer vegetables. Years ago, almost 18 to be exact, we were fascinated by zucchini flowers. At first, they can look intimidating, but when stuffed with cheese, meat or what ever you like they can be one of your favorite foods. If zucchini flowers had the baby zucchini still attached, even better (female zucchini flowers have small zucchini attached and male flowers are attached to the stem only).
For years we’ve been stuffing them with different mixtures of ricotta cheese, goat cheese, grains and meat, you name it we probably stuffed it. Last year when we were working on all our zucchini recipes, we wanted to make a savory-Vietnamese inspired stuffing. Why not" We took a shortened version of our easy pork egg roll stuffing and fill the zucchini flowers with them.
