Recipe type: Rice
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
  • 8 zucchini blossoms, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 cups broth
  • Parsley, chopped
  • Feta or parmesan cheese
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter then sweat the onion with salt to taste. Add the garlic and zucchini blossoms, stir and cook until the blossoms are tender to the bite. Add the rice, the broth and bring everything to a boil, cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook undisturbed for 15 minutes. Turn over with wooden spoon if your heat is higher on simmer so the bottom does not burn. Turn off heat but let the rice sit for 5 minutes undisturbed. Uncover the pilaf and fluff it with a fork.
