Brown the onion into the margarine. Add the rice and stir until it will be shiny, add the broth and cook for 10 minutes.

Remove from heat, mix half Parmesan.

Gently remove the pistils from the zucchini flowers, taking care to not demage them; wash the flowers, dry, stuff with the rice and place in an ovenproof dish.
