Baked Stuffed Squash Blossoms (GF, Paleo, AIP)

As a kid, I used to love the idea of eating flowers!! And when one of our neighbors would bring us some of the new squashes they had in garden, I was always super excited to cook with my mom and prepare baked stuffed squash blossoms!

Sometimes, we’d prepare a little batter to coat the blossoms before frying them… some other times we would use them to a touch of sweetness (and beauty) to a spongy frittata… but definitely their stuffed and baked version has always been my favorite!

If in the past ricotta and prosciutto were always the two ingredients of choice for the stuffing, now that I follow a dairy and gluten free diet, that’s not an option anymore… but still, there is no excuse not to recreate this delectable dish of my childhood in an allergy free way that’s also paleo and compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).

What I love about this recipe is that, despite looking like a complicated gourmet meal, it’s actually very easy to make. The total time from start to finish is only 30 minutes, and to create the filling you can simply blitz it in a food processor for a few seconds.
