Pan-Seared Courgette Flowers with Aromatic Herbs

No filling for these courgette flowers, just pan-seared with herbs. Served warm or cold, both perfect as a starter or a side dish.

Serves 2, Preparation 5 mins, Cooking time less than 10 mins

  • 10 Courgette flowers
  • a sprig of rosemary, thyme and 3-4 sage leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • A handful of grated Parmigiano cheese
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tbsp


Trim the stems and remove the pistils inside. Rinse them gently under the running water for few seconds, dry them delicately.

Heat 2 tablespoons of EVOO, fry the whole garlic clove together with the rosemary, thyme and sage for 1-2 minutes.
As soon as the garlic is golden and the herbs slightly crispy, throw in the courgette flowers, cook over a low heat, let they take on flavour.
Turn off the heat, scatter a handful of grated Parmigiano cheese that will melt in a moment with the heat, serve.
