Squash Blossoms

When selecting your squash blossoms for this recipe, be sure to choose those that are brightly colored and firm to the touch. Avoid any that are wilted or have brown spots, as these may not provide the best flavor or texture.


For a truly delectable filling, opt for high-quality ricotta cheese that is both rich and creamy. Add in a dash of paprika and garlic powder to elevate the flavor profile and give it an extra kick.


To achieve the perfect tempura batter, use a blend of flour and cornstarch in a 1:1 ratio. This will ensure that your batter is light and crispy. Additionally, consider using beer or soda water to give your batter an extra boost of flavor and fizz.

When preparing your squash blossoms, be sure to gently remove the pistil from the inside of the blossom before filling it with ricotta cheese. Dip each blossom into the tempura batter, ensuring that it is well-coated, before deep frying until golden brown and crispy.

With these ingredient tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to creating a Squash Blossom Tempura that is both simple and sensational. So go ahead and get cooking – your taste buds will thank you!
