The recipe for stuffed pumpkin flowers is the flavor story of the pumpkin flowers collected in the early hours of the morning before the sun rises in many corners of the Aegean and the Mediterranean. Although it varies according to the region, it is important to collect the flowers that are started to be collected in July in the morning hours when they are fully open and do not wear out due to heat. The flowers must be fruitless. This is how the preparation of stuffed squash blossoms, one of the most beautiful olive oil dishes, begins.
Slightly thorny and green petals are removed. The inner parts are cleaned, washed with gentle movements, and the excess water is drained. The flowers, which are filled with the previously prepared slightly fresh olive oil stuffing, are carefully covered and cooked on low heat. Eaten three times a day with freshly squeezed lemon juice or garlic yogurt. Come on then, welcome to our recipe! We already call you health and invite you to enjoy our stuffed pumpkin flowers.
