Stuffed Courgette Flowers with Balsamic Vinegar “Saporoso”

Everyone loves courgette flowers! They are so nice and delicate, and you can use it in several ways: to dress your pasta or as a light side for meat and fish.

Have you ever tried them stuffed?? Try this amazing recipe, which is completelly vegetarian!

I did bake them in the oven instead frying, so as to have a lighter and more pleasant result.

If you want to enhance the flavour even more, just add few drops of Balsamic Vinegar “Saporoso”: aged for six years in barrels of oak wood it is obtained from the juice of the Lambrusco Graspaross, and Trebbiano Modenese grapes. The density is syrupy, and the taste is sour with shades of wild flowers, grass and mustard. For this reason it is delicious, especially with cheese and vegetables, and therefore for this yummy recipe!!
