My mood was great while driving this 2cv.
I had zucchini flowers (Kabak Cicegi dolmasi) last week in Alacati. They were not amazing. This particular and demanding food is difficult to find. It has special season. Moving from south to north, summer to winter (yes, it is 20 degrees celsius and mostly raining in Brussels) I found my self enjoying some drinks at the posh Chatelain Market in Brussels this Wednesday. And zucchini flowers were welcoming me. They looked so good. So if you are lucky to find them in your local market try the following recipe. It requires patience as you have to stuff rice and other ingredients inside these fragile vegetables.
20 zucchini flowers
1 1/2 cup rice
2 medium onions, very finely chopped or grated
1/3 cup + 2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp currants
2 tbsp pine nuts
1/2 tsp allspice or cinnamon
1 tsp sugar
1 or more tsp salt
juice of 1/2 lemon or 2 tsp pomegranate molasses
1-2 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup finely chopped dill
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley (save the stems)
