Bong Bi Xao (Vietnamese Sauteed Squash Blossoms)

So very many squash blossoms. I've made deep-fried squash blossoms stuffed with minced shrimp. I then made deep-fried squash blossoms. Should I take my youngest uncle's suggestion and blanch them? I decided to do a quick saute instead.

  1. Looks too healthy...I'll take the fried ones! ;P

  2. Sauteed with garlic and dip in fish sauce sounds good too! You are making me hungry. Must go and find squash blossoms at the farmer's market this weekend.

  3. Wow - that's really interesting. I never knew that the blossoms were edible! Looks like you've been doing a whole series on squash blossoms! I'll definitely have to look out for these - never seen them at the market at all...hehe - maybe at the florist?

  4. Christine,
    Hehe, I prefer fried too. :)

    Good luck finding them. I hope you like eating them too.

    Are you back? Do you like my squash blossoms series as much as my dumplings series? ;)
