Preparation

Stuffed Zucchini Flowers

  • Preheat oven to 205°C. Lightly coat a 9 by 9 baking dish with Malaysian palm oil or line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Mix the minced chicken, mushrooms and rosemary and cook for 3-5 minutes until browned. Drain and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Mix together the ricotta, bacon, mushrooms, and egg yolk. Season with salt if needed.
  • Gently open the blossoms and stuff with the ricotta/bacon/mushroom mixture, about 1-2 teaspoons per flower depending on the size of the flower. Lay stuffed zucchini flowers on the prepared sheet pan or baking dish and drizzle with Malaysian palm oil.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until browned. Serve warm.

Sunny Vegetables

  • Brush the vegetables with ¼ cup of Malaysian palm oil, coat lightly. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper.
  • In batches, grill the vegetables until tender and lightly charred all over, about 8 to 10 minutes for the bell peppers. 7 minutes for the yellow and green zucchini and eggplant.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, garlic, basil, and rosemary in a small bowl to blend.
  • Add salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle the herb mixture over the vegetables. Serve the vegetables, warm or at room temperature.
