Squash Flowers and Eggs Lamanna

by

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or more to taste
  • 25 or so zucchini flowers (sepals removed)
  • 4 eggs

Instructions:

Heat oil in skillet. Add flowers and saute lightly until they wilt. Beat eggs and add to skillet. Scramble all together. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve with crusty bread.

Additional Notes:

The Yankee Cook is not sure removing male flowers will really result in more zucchini, but it is true the plant needs fewer of them than it makes. Female flowers are the ones with the bulbous, incipient zucchinis on the bases. Remove them and you definitely won't have more, which may be a good thing. Winter squash flowers may also be used in this recipe, by the way, and after the beginning of September it makes sense to use them up. They won't have time to make squash before frost anyway.
