These Stuffed Courgette Flowers are delicious, tasty and fun to make. If you like tomato and vegetables, then this dish is certainly is for you.

Courgettes have become a really popular choice in Britain – most chefs are using them all the time. They are also known as zucchini flowers and considered a delicacy.
Some people think its crazy or madness eating flowers, but don’t forget most fruit and vegetables start from flowers! Eating them can be very pleasurable experience – who would have thought that years ago, the first time I tried these stuffed courgette flowers, was at my friends mum’s house, and it was her idea that I should make them as I have lots of courgettes.
