20 courgette flowers
150g white rice
Sprinkle finely chopped mint leaves
30g onion, grated
30g courgettes, grated
30g tomato, grated
200ml olive oil
120ml fresh lemon juice
2 pinches salt
2 pinches pepper
1) Place the courgettes flowers in cold water to open and make the preparation easier.

2) In a large mixing bowl place the rice, all the chopped and grated ingredients, half of the olive oil and lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well. With a small spoon, take small amounts of the stuffing and fill the courgette flowers. Fold over the ends to seal the stuffing inside.

3) Place the flowers on the bottom of a large saucepan, with the openings facing the bottom. Pour in enough water to cover. Add 1 pinch of salt, 1 pinch of pepper and the rest of the olive oil and lemon juice. Cover and simmer gently for about 40 mins until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.

* Cooks Note: Place a plate (upside down) on top of the stuffed vegetables before cooking so that the parcels cannot rise or move.
