Squash blossoms are awesome! If you've never had them, buy them now. This recipe takes 5 minutes to prepare... and then you can mix them into pasta or top your pizza with them!
  • 10 - 15 organic squash/zucchini blossoms
  • 1 Tbs grass-fed butter
  • 1 smashed garlic clove
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Gently spread the petals of each blossom, and rinse out each one, making sure no bugs are hidden inside.
  2. Heat the butter in a large saute pan. When it's melted, add the garlic clove and stir it around for about 30 seconds.
  3. Gently place as many blossoms as will fit in a single layer in the pan. After about 10 seconds, flip them over. Only leave them on the second side for about 10 more seconds. Repeat with remaining blossoms.
  4. Stir some sautéed blossoms into a bowl of hot grain-free pasta, or top your pizza with them.
  5. Enjoy!
