Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Chop 2 zucchini blossoms finely. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Stir tofu, feta cheese, olives, garlic, thyme, oregano, and seasoned salt into the bowl. Pour filling into a food processor; pulse until very crumbly. Increase speed blend until smooth and golden, about 3 minutes.

  • Pipe filling into remaining 6 blossoms using a pastry bag or a resealable plastic bag with the corner snipped off. Twist blossom ends carefully to seal in filling. Arrange on a plate; transfer to the freezer.

  • Mix whole wheat flour and egg substitute together in a bowl until batter is the consistency of pudding.

  • Spread bread crumbs in a shallow dish.

  • Dip a stuffed blossom in batter and roll in bread crumbs. Repeat with remaining blossoms.

  • Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook blossoms until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use seasoned or plain bread crumbs.

Use other fresh herbs instead of thyme and oregano if desired.
