Fresh from the garden, Pumpkin (or Zuccini) Blossoms are a unique ingredient in Mexican Cooking.
Popular traditional recipes include…
Squash Blossom Quesadillas- Quesadillas De Flor De Calabaza
Pumpkin Flower Soup- Sopa de Flor de Calabaza
Squash Blossom Saute- Guiso de Flor de Calabaza
My favorite is Quesadillas…
I picked this Platter and trimmed off the green stems.
After washing, I sauté them in a little Olive Oil, Garlic, Onions & Mexican Oregano.
Next, whip up some quesadillas with Queso Fresco, Mexican Cheese and
sneak your warm flowers sauté right in the middle!
