Baked Stuffed Squash Blossoms

Baked Stuffed Squash Blossoms on Salad
Note: 

I had read about stuffing squash blossoms from the farmer's market, so when I came across some at the produce stand in Santa Ynez the other day, I couldn't WAIT to try it!  But most recipes I came across involved frying them, so I decided to make my own recipe for baking them, and they were DELICIOUS!

Serve over greens or salad for a delicious meal, or serve alone as finger-friendly, healthy appetizers or snacks.

Tools needed: 
baking pan or sheet
Time: 
30 minutes
Ingredients: 
12 squash blossoms, stamens removed, rinsed gently and patted dry
1/8 cup shredded parmesan, goat or feta cheese
1 tsp chopped fresh basil leaves
1 tsp chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 tbs finely chopped shallot
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
olive oil
Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly oil pan or baking sheet. 
  3. Mix herbs, cheese, shallot and garlic together in a small bowl.
  4. Scoop cheese mixture into squash blossoms (1/2 to 1 tbs each) .  Arrange on pan or baking sheet.  Brush with olive oil.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Arrange on salad or mixed greens.  Serve while warm.
Serves: 
2 for dinner, more for appetizer
