Recipe by Chef John
"If you have a garden and you planted zucchini, you will have an abundance of squash blossoms. These are just amazing, with that tangy goat cheese filling and that batter: so simple, light, and crisp."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

fresh zucchini blossoms
soft goat cheese at room temperature
shredded Gruyere cheese
freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
ice-cold water, or as needed
vegetable oil for frying
all-purpose flour, or as needed
As I was making this I was convinced it wouldn't work out, but in the end it they turned out beautifully. I substituted a hard mozarella for the gruyere, and did a simple coating of egg followed by cornstarch instead of the batter (to make it gluten-free). I also added a clove of mashed garlic to the cheese mixture. I served them with avocados and green chile salsa. They were absolutely delicious. I will definitely make these any time I have squash blossoms. It isn't a hard recipe, it just seems hard the first time, and it is very much worth it.
Delicious! Don't be afraid to try this recipe! If you are growing zucchini or yellow squash this spring, you must try these. Thanks Chef John!
