Zucchini Flower Frittata


SavouryVegetarian

This is one of my favourite dishes to make during the summer. I love courgette flowers. They are so beautiful, delicate and delicious. I make lots of things with them in the summer. We have found that the more you pick them the more they grow so we try and keep them going for the whole summer by being greedy! It works wonderfully for a picnic or lunch, but also as a brunch dish and it can be cut into cubes as a canapé.  Do see my fried recipe too (sorry the photos are a bit retro now but the recipe is still something I make every year).
