Stuffed Zucchini flowers with feta cheese

                                                                                                                                                              Stuffed zucchini flowers with feta cheese are one of my favourite appetizers !
My aunt gave me this recipe and usually
 I prepare double dose and put half in the freezer for another time


Vegetable oil, to deep fry
250g Greek feta cheese
10 - 15  zucchini flowers
2 tsp fresh or dried spearmint
1 small egg

For the batter

1 cup plain flour
2/3 cup beer
                Fill a saucepan half full with oil and place over a medium heat until hot enough to deep fry.
 Combine the feta, the egg, the spearmint and the pepper in  a small bowl.
Fill the zucchini flowers with the mixture and twist the flowers closed.
Place the flour and the beer in a bowl and  whisk to make a batter.
Coat the zucchini flowers with the batter, then carefully place in the hot oil.

                                            Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden and crispy.
Drain onto a plate lined with kitchen paper.
They can be served with yogurt sauce.

Bon appetite
