Fried Zucchini Flowers Stuffed with Feta, Hen of the Woods, and Fresh Basil

I loooooooooove Zucchini Flowers.  Maybe it’s because they only come out once a year, making them even more special, or maybe because I love the crisp delicate texture they offer.

Fried Zucchini Flowers Stuffed with Feta, Hen of the Woods, and Fresh Basil
Makes 8 Zucchini Flowers

8 Zucchini Flowers
1 clove Garlic
1/4 Cup Feta Cheese
1/4 Cup Hen of the Woods, or whatever mushrooms you want to use
Butter for frying mushrooms
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tbsp Greek Yogurt
2 tbsp Fresh Basil
Red Chili Pepper Flakes
2 tbsp Veggie Oil
Parmesan Reggiano
Salt and Pepper

1 Cup Seltzer Water
2/3 Cup Flour

Mix the seltzer water and flour together and set aside.  Remove the stems from the zucchini flowers, carefully peel open the flower and remove the pistils or stamen or whatever the correct biological term is, just take out the inside bits!  Wash the flowers and allow to dry on some kitchen towel.

Mix the feta, minced garlic, greek yogurt, chopped up basil, lemon, red chili pepper flakes, some grated parmesan, and salt and pepper up together.  Fry the mushrooms in some butter until liquid released.  Once cooked, chop up the mushrooms and add to the feta mixture.

Stuff the zucchini flowers with the mixture, about a spoonful for flower.  Twist the petals to keep the mixture in.  Heat up the oil and once hot, fry each flower on both sides until golden.  Eat straight away.
