Deep-fried zucchini flowers
You can find these delicious little flowering zucchini at your local farmers market, or you can order them online. To make them, first take a large bowl and mix flour and water until you have a batter that is the consistency of pancake batter. Add in 5 g of fresh yeast, or active dry yeast. This will give the batter a light, fluffy texture. After mixing, let the batter sit for 30 minutes. Then, place the zucchini flowers in the batter, and fry until golden and crispy.
To prepare the batter, sift the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the salt and olive oil. Once this is combined, add 80 to 125 mL of warm water, and whisk the batter until it is smooth and liquid. Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites until they are stiff peaks. Then, fold in the batter into the eggs. Dip the zucchini flowers one at a time into the batter, and fry until golden.
Dip the flowers into the batter, and then lower them into the hot oil. Then, allow them to fry for about 4-5 minutes, turning them gently to make sure they do not stick to the pan. Depending on the size of your pan, you may have to fry three to four flowers at a time. Afterwards, drain the flowers on paper, and serve with a drizzle of honey. Enjoy! And don’t forget to serve them with a glass of white wine.
