60 mins

2-3 people



6-8 fresh courgette flowers
For the filling:
150g macadamia nuts
125 ml almond milk
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp Mr Organic Lemon Juice
For the batter:
150 g plain flour
½ tsp of salt
1 tsp paprika powder
200 ml sparkling water


  1. Let’s start with the vegan ricotta filling! Soak the macadamia nuts overnight until softened (or place them in boiling water for 20 minutes!).
  2. Place the soft nuts into a blender alongside the flavour paste, almond milk, salt and lemon juice and process until smooth. Place the mix into muslin over a sieve and allow it to drain
    until you get desired texture. Transfer to a piping bag and place into the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat your frying oil in a deep saucepan with a lid over low/medium heat until it reaches 175C-190C. Do not overheat as otherwise the oil will begin to smoke.
  4. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt & sparkling water.
  5. Start piping your vegan ricotta into the courgette flowers, then – once the oil is ready – dip them into the batter. Allow for any excess to drip off and carefully lower them into the oil to deep-fry.
  6. Fry them for roughly 2 minutes each or until golden, then allow for any excess oil to drip off on a cooling rack.
  7. Serve the courgette flowers immediately and enjoy them with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.

Chef’s tip: For a spicy kick, stir a spoonful of chilli sauce into the vegan ricotta filling – or simply add some chili powder to the batter!
