squash blossom quesadillas

There’s a certain summer treat that I take special delight in buying at Farmer’s Market each summer: squash blossoms. I think it’s mainly the fact that I’m buying flowers that are also food that give me a little giggle each time I do it.

But whatever does one DO with squash blossoms at home? Well, since I’m deathly afraid of frying pretty much anything, stuffed blossoms are out of the question. Instead, I love to indulge in some easy to make quesadillas!

An incredibly easy way to brighten up your normal plain quesadilla!
  • 8 squash blossoms (cleaned and trimmed)
  • 4 6″ tortillas
  • Queso Oaxaca (or any other cheese you’d like)
  • 1 T Canola Oil
  1. Trim and clean the squash blossoms. Heat the canola oil on medium in a medium-sized frying pan.
  2. Place cheese in one half of the tortilla. Layer 2 squash blossoms over the cheese. Add an additional layer of cheese and close the tortilla. Press down gently to form the quesadilla.
  3. Fry the quesadilla until golden brown on both sides, flipping as needed.
  4. Serve with your favorite salsa!
