These zucchini roses are incredibly easy to make yet create a wonderful visual statement to any party where finger food is being served.

The roses may appear fiddly and difficult to make but with the assistance of muffin or a cupcake moulds these vegetarian roses can be prepared quickly and easily in just a few steps.

It’s a novel way of serving up a version of what is classically Italian Zucchini Parmigiana.

Classic Italian Zucchini Parmigiana served up as Zucchini Roses.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 5

1 Sheet of puff pastry
1 Zucchini
100g Brie
Tomato salsa
Salt and pepper
Parmesan cheese

Thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise. For ease use a mandolin to achieve a uniform thickness.

Sear the zucchini slices under a grill or on top of a hotplate for 10 seconds each side. Set aside and season with a little salt and pepper.

Thaw a sheet of puff pastry and using a sharp knife slice the pastry into strips of approximately 3cm wide.

Pending the thickness of the zucchini slices, place 2-3 layers of the zucchini on top of each piece of pastry.

Cover the zucchini with a spoonful of Tomato salsa. Cube the Brie and scatter over the salsa.

Zucchini Roses Montage
Slice Zucchini lengthwise and lightly sear under a grill or on a hotplate; Cut pastry into 3cm strips and layer the zucchini on top of the pastry; Add layers of tomato salsa and cheese and season with oregano, salt and pepper.

Starting from one end of the pastry, roll into a cylinder shape then pinch one side of the pastry to form a flower base. Repeat this technique with the remaining pastry.

Place each zucchini rose into a muffin tin or cupcake mould.

Muffin or cupcake tins are useful in helping to hold the zucchini roses in place while baking.

Place the zucchini roses into a preheated 180°C oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes.

Just before serving sprinkle a little parmesan cheese over the top of each flower. Serve hot or cold.
