Introduction

Impress your guests, but keep it healthy! These can make a stylish appetizer or be served as a "piece de résistance" in an italian meal, served with pasta and grilled vegetables.
This is a healthy alternative to the deep fried version.

  • Was glad to see a flower recipe, most people think I'm crazy for eating them, I just like to flourer and egg them and fry in a small amount of olive oil and of course salt and pepper to taste. - 8/25/09
