Before going raw, I made some scrumptious flower fritters with red clover blossoms and dandelion flowers. They were incredibly easy to make. They were inspired by my friend Vanessa who told me she’d made some with dandelion flowers: just mix egg, flour and milk for batter, dip the flowers and fry. Then drizzle with maple syrup.
I used coconut milk and buckwheat flour (to make them gluten-free and dairy-free), fried them in olive oil and voila: pure yumminess!
Recipe: Flower Fritters
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (you can use any milk)
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour (you can use any flour)
Mix ingredients together.
You’ll also need:
- red clover blossoms
- dandelion flowers (you can do one or the other or both)
- olive oil
- maple syrup
Dip flowers into batter, covering the flower with batter.
In a small pan (or pot) with olive oil, drop battered flowers. Flip when browned (this only takes a couple minutes.)
Remove onto cloth or paper towels to drain excess oil.
Serve drizzled with maple syrup.
Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day!
