squash blossom frittata



i bought some squash blossoms, with every intention of stuffing them with cheese, dipping them in a tempura batter and then frying them, but i couldn't work up the energy. so, i took the ingredients--blossoms, cheese, egg whites--and made a frittata.



i stuffed the blossoms with a semi-soft cheese with roasted chiles i found in one of my market forays, sautéed some spinach, then arranged the blossoms around the spinach. a few egg whites and frying pan later, breakfast is served.

Hi Santos,

Looks wonderful. I've only eaten the squash blossoms as tempura and they were quite delish!

i love squash blossom tempura, and i never see it in restaurants anymore. if i see them again at the farmers market, i'll definitely make them. maybe :-)
