Fiori di zucca ripieni alla lombarda

Ingredients for 4 servings:
400 gr fresh zucchini flowers
150 gr parboiled rice
30 gr cream margarine
1 onion, finely chopped
80 gr grated Parmesan cheese
2 dl low-fat milk
2 tbsp flour
2 dl broth
Salt

Ready in: about 85 minutes


How to prepare the recipe: "Lombard style stuffed zucchini flowers":
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.

Dilute the flour into the milk and cook in a pan until you get a thick and omogeneous cream. Salt and pour onto the zucchini flowers. Spread with the remaining Parmesan and gratin in the oven.
